It’s the viral video that has once again gone viral… with a political twist.
It all started back in November of 2014, when Adult Swim created a short video called, “Too Many Cooks.” The video was a parody of old sitcom beginnings with a catchy theme song. The strange video started with family members and slowly got weirder and weirder, ending with a knife-wielding killer. Don’t ask, just watch.
This video went viral last year, so of course there would be parodies inspired by it, but no one expected who would create one.
CNN is known for breaking news, hard-hitting facts… and now, parodies. CNN decided to jump into the parody business with a their own presidential version of “Too Many Cooks.” The news organization’s version featured the same music and 90’s style credit opening, but the family members were replaced with the 2016 presidential hopefuls. The video begins with logical choices, such as Ted Cruz and Chris Christie, but just like its predecessor, the video gets weird with highly unlikely candidates, such as Cuba Gooding Jr., Kim Jong Un and national debt.
