Time for Some Campaignin’

I love JibJab…especially at campaign time.  It seems so many of us lose our sense of humor when there’s an election on, especially if our candidate is the one being made fun of.  But, the folks at JibJab just throw everything up in the air and make fun of everyone…so there’s no reason not to laugh.  Ya gotta appreciate that!

With that illustrious introduction, here is their very latest as we say goodbye to the Bush administration and hello to God knows what at this stage of the game!  It’s set to the tune of, “The Times They Are A’Changin’.”

Now, if you loved that…I mean, if you really loved it a LOT…you can visit the JibJab website and actually put yourself in the video.  Or, put someone you know (and have a good head shot of) in it and send it to them.  I put my Dad in it.  If you’re not expecting to see yourself show up at the end of the thing, it’s quite a trip!

And, if you like putting your head on other people’s bodies (and I do mean that in the most sociably-acceptable fashion), there are a whole bunch of other JibJab “Sendables,” to keep you amused and on top of your special occasion e-card responsibilities.

A little history on the minds behind the videos can be found on the JibJab YouTube profile:

Brothers Gregg and Evan Spiridellis founded JibJab in 1999 with a few thousand dollars worth of computer equipment, a dial-up Internet connection and a dream of building a global entertainment brand. In 2004, their election parody “This Land” spark an international sensation and was viewed more than 80 million times online. NASA even contacted the brothers to send a copy to the International Space Station! Since then, JibJab has premiered ten original productions on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and received coverage on every major news outlet. In 2004, Peter Jennings named the brothers “People of the Year.”

Not bad going for a couple of guys from Brooklyn just messing around!

Matthew 16:1 Then the Pharisees and Sadducees came, and testing Him asked that He would show them a sign from heaven. 2 He answered and said to them, “When it is evening you say, ‘It will be fair weather, for the sky is red’; 3 and in the morning, ‘It will be foul weather today, for the sky is red and threatening.’ Hypocrites! You know how to discern the face of the sky, but you cannot discern the signs of the times. 4 A wicked and adulterous generation seeks after a sign, and no sign shall be given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah.” And He left them and departed.

  1. I loved “This land is your land”. I still watch it every once in a while. They are consistently funny, but that one remains their best.
