New Jib Jab Movie

New Obama/McCain Jib Jab Movie! Funny, Funnier, or Feh?

Though hog-tied comics are bemoaning the excruciating difficulty of making jokes about the oh, so serious and sensitivity-requiring state of the election (hey, it's not working construction, jokesters) Jib Jab thinks they've found a way around the "how do we tell a joke like Obama" dilemma.

Looking like the 2004 Bush and Kerry This Land Is Your Land vid, the 2008 installment is set to Bob Dylan's Times They Are a-Changin'. Did they solve the Obama humor-vacuum by making him ride a unicorn? I don't know about you, but that's how he appears in my dreams, anyway. I question whether the format, which felt so fresh in 2004, has weathered the last four years — it feels a little Dean-y to me. And! Come on people, yes, JSM (or JMac, take your pick) is old. Old, old, old as the hills. We get it. Can we please find something else funny about him?

That said, this new version could rule because you can put yourself in it through the magic of Photoshop. Ooh! Put yourself in it and show us! Fun project!

Coosa, have you ever seen Obama on SNL? Or Letterman? I found him hilarious on both. And despite me being a democrat, I think I have an awesome sense of humor, despite it being sometimes corny. As for this video: to me it wasn't as funny as the "This Land Is Your Land" one...

If the Democrats and Obama would Lighten Up and Loosen Up, then some good jokes would be forth coming. The problem is that Obama has thin skin and cannot take a joke. He actually takes himself seriously . . . and this is dangerous to the USofA and to voters. McCain has a great sense of humor and doesn't mind a good joke and will tell jokes on himself. I've never seen Obama laugh at a joke told about him. If you have one, get it on youtube so I can watch it. McCain and Palin in 2008. Palin and Sessions in 2012.

I didn't find the '04 one all that funny, but I laughed out loud at Obama on the unicorn.

It was ok... but the old one was WAY better and more creative. I feel like the comics have gotten too nice on these politicians.

That was kind of funny. zeze, I just rewatched "This Land is Your Land" and it was hilarious all over again! I also think the jibjab years in review are pretty funny too.

It's not all that funny, but it's kind of cute, I like that they showed Barry Obama in fantasy-land, since that's his usual abode. I hope the next one is more rip-roaring satirically hilarious. Maybe Barry O will choose a Vice President that Jib Jab can really poke fun at. The exclusivity of elite snobbery exhibited by Barry Obama and minions is pervasively depressing. I want to be able to laugh WITH (as well as at) the next President Of these United States. I don't want to live under a dictator or a tyrannical leader who refuses to allow us to laugh at and with him/her. If I wanted that, I'd move to a Country with Sharia Law.

Now this is more like it..positive critism. Far better than that tasteless New Yorker cover.

That was boring! I remember crying because I laughed so hard at the "This Land is your Land" video, especially when when Bush says, "Tex-ass-Yee-ha!" And the back and forth insults Bush and Kerry sang to each other. This was so predictable, McCain is old and Obama is a hippie - OMG! How shocking! ...heheh...I just remembered the "I have 3 purple hearts" - by the end of that video I wanted to punch Kerry every time I heard him mention it.
