A comedy/parody site (b3ta.com) I was visiting had a link to Dennis Madalone’s video - America We Stand As One. Given that previous links from b3ta had gone to other funny sites, I assumed Madalone’s would be as well. I watched the video and guffawed through its entire length. What wonderful satire!
To say I was stunned when I was told that the video and song were meant to be taken seriously, was an understatement. In fact, I’m still not certain that the whole thing isn’t a satire.
Who’s whooshing who here?
[sup][sub]Please forgive me if I’ve offended anyone with my (honest) impression of the video. If I have, blame it on me being a Canadian and thus not having a real understanding of the US (what with watching all that great stuff on CBC during my free time, I just don’t have the time to keep up with international matters, eh?)[/sub][/sup]
Yeah, there were a couple of threads about this, this…thing some time back. Even the most patriotic of Dopers found it to be sappy, moronic, and utterly hilarious. The guy’s heart was in the right place, I know, but…UGH! He should’ve stuck to stuntwork.
