  1. Can we trade?

    I think the actors in the commercial have a lot more punch than the originals…

    DRJ – I think “they” just say that because “they” don’t want to hurt your feelings. At least to your face.

    That commercial is some LMAO funny.

  3. EW1 – I was going to say the real Barcky doesn’t have that much rhythm.

  4. It is funny, Vivian Louise. I’m just not sure it’s flattering.

  5. Why is it sales guys sound the same in any language?

    VL, you have been on a righteous tear of late. I heart you, girl, saith allan.

  6. Because it can be taken both ways, it’s perfect.

    It both honors and makes fun of Obama. It’s like the Necker Cube of commercials.

  7. It is like the “Super Obama” clip by JibJab.

    If you don’t know who is the mark, you are

    And the real Ms Obama isn’t that svelte!

  13. This has the same relationship to real power politics as scenes in “How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying” did to corporate America, and reminded me of that classical spoof on business.
