Creased Comics – Brad Neely
Ever since SNL’s Andy Samberg and Chris Parnell rapped about eating cupcakes and going to the movies in their digital short “Lazy Sunday”, the internet has exploded with a plethora of badly produced videos made by kids who said, “Hey, I can do that.” YouTube has opened the doors for every 14 year-old with a camcorder and iMovie to upload and share their “talent” with the web while also providing desk drones with another good site to help pass the hours at work. Every now and then though one of these videos will become a web hit, getting forwarded from person to person and eventually shoved onto someone’s MySpace bulletin. Creased Comics video short, Washington, follows that trend of transforming the boring and mundane into catchy and cool. Portraying George Washington as a lady-loving, gun-slinging, hero of America. As crude as the lyrics are, you can’t help yourself from hitting the replay button and calling over a friend.
