The Taiwanese company New Media Animation (NMA) has a shockingly astute understanding of American politics. NMA has had a field day animating some of the more parody rich moments in this last year of the American election cycle. The site, which boasts the slogan "All the news that is fit to animate," has beaten many American pundits and humorists to the punch this week with a hysterical, masterfully animated version of the presidential Debates from Wednesday night. Here are some of the highlights:
There are elephants, donkeys & Sesame Street characters in the audience
Romney wears massive boxing gloves, talks trash
Obama spins a beanie hat propeller
78-year-old Jim Lehrer is being reminded by death that time is running out
Romney comes out swinging
Punches Obama on jobs
Punches Obama on tax cuts
Punches Obama on the economy
Proves that Romneycare does not equal Obamacare with a comically large marker
Finds a chainsaw (a reference to a pundit's remarks on Friday)
And you don't want to know what he does to big bird with it
Here is a hint
Sesame Street characters cheering for Obama in the front row get 'Gallaghered'
Obama breathes fire into Lehrer's face
Donkeys at home are disappointed
Mitt finishes with a roundhouse kick...
Walker Texas Ranger style
Maybe this was the mysterious thud?
Does a jig
Watch the epic and hysterical version below:
