Rifftrax Riffs On Politics, Hilarity (and Hillary) Ensues

A year-or-so ago, Mike Nelson did some humorous voiceovers overtop of some California political ads. Fortunately, he’s finally taken the opportunity to do a repeat performance, this time for the current crop of Presidential candidates. You can find the ads embedded in Mike’s post, and I’ve embedded my favorite above. They’re all surprisingly solid, though. After the break, I’ve also embedded one clip that seems to be missing from the latest edit(?) of Mike’s blog.

I’d like to make a special request, however: Could we please kill that big, booming voice at the end of every clip? It’s really, really annoying, not to mention tacky as all get-out. Pretty please? For ol’ Hugh?

  1. New URL for the McCain ad:

  2. Fixed. Thanks, Erik. :)

  3. Oh wow, those were great. The Obama one was by far the funniest!

  4. I don’t get why they don’t just use Kevin as the announcer guy at the end.

  5. The big voice guy is a professional and they’ve been using him from the beginning, before Kevin was onboard. I want to say his name is Fred or Frank, but I am not at home so can’t check that.

  6. I don’t mind the voice itself, I just wish they’d tone it down a few notches. It totally kills the mood.
