    speaking of internet memes – this video is superb.

    hmm – can’t get the embed to work.

    so the link will have to do.



    [lprent: corrected the link. No embeds allowed. Great video though]

  2. Thanks for wasting a 1.36 of my life. I’m guessing some high school kids came up with that video?

    Will try the embed link again – nice and tidy. The Budweiser ‘Wassup’ video of many moons ago – reworked for 2008.

    Brett – A waste of 1.36 minutes is a better return than 1,577,846.3 minutes that will be wasted under a National government.

    Brett you’re lucky you’re not on dial-up like I am today – took about 5 minutes of my life.

    But watching anything with muppets is a good use of time I reckon.

    I’m surprised that John Key has a nose left after the dog attack:

  7. Yep, the Muppets take me back.

    Im guessing

    Kermit would belong to the Green Party.
    Sam the Eagle. ACT
    Fozzie Bear- NZ First
    The two old men- National
    Miss Piggy- Labour
    An Animal wouldnt give a F**k.

    Well spotted Brett!

  9. Wassap video is the best political video of the year, without a doubt, its great they used the original actors.

    Andrew sullivan’s blog, the daily dish is also the best blog around.

    Sorry, my IT skills are not adequate to produce & edit videos (it is all Lockwood’s fault from when he was Minister of Education).

    But I have posted something over at that might give someone an idea for what could be a very funny video. If Lockwood and Maurice are shut out of Cabinet, they may decide to leave National and form their own party – the Neanderthal Party.

    Or are they part of it already?
