Dennis Madalone - whoosh?

A comedy/parody site ( 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]

I think it was supposed to be serious. But it was still hilarious.

Wow…just wow.

Are you sure that’s not Adam Sandler? Sure looks like him.

And that is one of the funniest film clips ever. It surely has to be a parody of something. :smiley:

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.

Yeah the first time I saw it, I thought it just had to be a spoof, but no, looking around his site, he meant that from the bottom of his heart.

Funny, funny stuff.

Sorry, I actually searched but missed it. IIRC, I limited the search to six months so maybe that’s why.

No problem–just thought you’d like to know that you weren’t the only one who had trouble believing it was genuine! :slight_smile:

I can hardly believe more than six months have gone by since I first saw it, though. I can’t get over how fast time flies by!

This is one of the earlier threads–it contains a link to the other.

Just in case you were interested!
