Media World Implodes On Itself, Sprays Santorum Everywhere

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

Actual video source uncredited.Does this screenshot of a video clip posted to YouTube (and now posted to Wonkette) seem a little, uhh, heavy with logos?

While the actual source of the video clip is unknown, and we found it on the bottom of some weird blog called “God Discussion,” there are five (5) corporate media brand logos stamped all over this video that was not made by any of them. At least we know the video clip person at BuzzFeed was Tivo’ing CNN when he uploaded and embedded it, and then the producers of MSNBC’s The Ed Show copied the video off BuzzFeed and broadcast it on the MSNBC channel, and then someone/some thing called “politicalarticles” (a YouTube user account) uploaded it to the Internet yet again, and now it says “By politicalarticles,” the end. [What?]

Hey there, Wonkeputians! Shypixel here to remind you to remember our Commenting Rules For Radicals, Enjoy!

  • Dashboard Buddha

    Don't care about the logos. However, I am digging the image of Ricky with an imaginary gun to his head.

    • bumfug

      I like to imagine that picture is Rick, in a rare moment of clarity, saying "There's obviously something very wrong in here".

      • Dashboard Buddha

        Or maybe he's saying, “Vote for me or the white boy gets its”—

        • not that Dewey

          Listen to him, men. He's just crazy enough to do it.

    • BaldarTFlagass

      Nah, he's spinning that finger in a circle, indicating his mental state.

    • Baconzgood

      DAMN YOU DASH! I was trying to go for #1 snark and purloined it from me.

      • Dashboard Buddha

        Sorry baconz…I have the competitive advantage. This is my last week at work and I have fuck all to do. Good news: Plenty of time for snark. Bad news: I'm going to be unemployed in 3 days.

        • KeepFnThatChicken

          Oh, damn. I'd like to say this means "More time on Wonkette!" but that really isn't beneficial…

          • Dashboard Buddha

            It will be a nice diversion between jumping through unemployment's hoops and interviewing for soulless jobs.

        • BaldarTFlagass

          Unemployed?!? So much for this economic recovery I'd been hearing about.

          • Dashboard Buddha

            Well…it's sort of a mutual thing. I really suck at this job, but for all that, we all love each other. Good people…I'm just not a good salesman.

          • Baconzgood

            I was born for it.

          • HistoriCat

            That's just the alcohol talking.

        • Baconzgood

          I can maybe help you out with a job working on my floor. You'll need a shoe box of fire ants, some crazy glue and the key to department director Dale's office (which he now religiously locks when he's gone).

          • Dashboard Buddha

            Office mischief? I'm your man!—

        • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com FROTHY

          Well, shit, that sucks. Here's hoping it lasts only as long as you want it to.

          On the PLUS side, they seem to be hiring all over the place.

        • V572 Flambé

          Can I have your stapler?

          But sorry to hear it. Hope you find something soon, if that's your desire or need or both.

    • UnholyMoses

      PULL IT, RICK!! PUUUULLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL IIIIITTT!!!

      • iburl

        Don't pull, squeeze.

        • UnholyMoses

          That's what she said!

          (Sorry — had to.)

          • redarmyzombie

            And Santorum doth floweth over freely…

    • http://simplyleftbehind.blogspot.com/ actor212

      Please….he's cleaning ear wax…

    • http://whatisawatthedevolution.blogspot.com imissopus

      I like to think he's saying "If I shave my head you'll see the lobotomy scar right here."

      • bikerlaureate

        I like to think he's saying, "If thy right brain offend thee, pluck it out."

    • widestanceromance

      The fact that he's doing it wrong–hello, IN THE MOUTH, RICK, IN THE MOUTH–makes me want to throw up.

      • http://simplyleftbehind.blogspot.com/ actor212

        Guns don't go there. Penises do.

  • Baconzgood

    Hopefully Ricky is practicing his Budd Dwyer imitation.

    • Dashboard Buddha

      I didn't know who that was so I looked him up. Did you know there's a website called bestgore that has video of his suicide? I didn't confirm this however.

      Fucking world.

      • Baconzgood

        That's why I'm pissed about #1. It's cerebral, which is somthing Baconz doesn't achieve often.

    • http://wonkette.com/ slowhansolo

      They'd have to re-air that episode of "Webster" and then cut away to it live to achieve the full effect.

      • Baconzgood

        Memories. Good TeeVee.

  • http://wonkette.com TanzbodenKoenig

    Yo Dawg! I heard you like logos so I put a logo on your logo so you can logo while you logo

    • Callyson

      Well, we all know that Ricky secretly watches the Logo network when no one is watching…

  • Barb

    Does Rick Santorum really need Secret Service protection? Back in my day, a candidate would just hold a bullet between their knees………….

    • Lionel[redacted]Esq

      Trust me, Rick has been holding that bullet between his knees for a very long time.

    • Dashboard Buddha

      Win!

      • Barb

        Dashboard Buddha, thank you for getting the reference. I was afraid that no one would. You rock!

  • MrFizzy

    Seems like Depends would be a perfect sponsor for Ricky-poo.

    • Troglodeity

      Especially when this subtitle reads "The Politics of the Cloth."

      • UW8316154

        …which is a weekly cable segment hosted by David Vitter…

        • redarmyzombie

          Very quickly, this has turned from harmless snark to something truly horrifying…
          O.o

  • bumfug

    It took longer to describe where the clip came from than it did for me to decide not to waste time watching it.

  • BaldarTFlagass

    I think I saw something like this on that NASCAR race car that blew up last night.

    • http://www.eloquentscience.com EloquentScience

      NASCAR. Something blew up. Is someone talking about Mittbot's programming errors again?

  • BaldarTFlagass

    It would be even cooler if they showed this on Logo TV.

    • widestanceromance

      needs more 'sent from my iphone'

    • Callyson

      OMG wouldn't it be hilarious if one of the contestants on RuPaul's Drag Race did Ricky? (Literally or figuratively, of course.) I'm thinking Sharon Needles since she hails from Pittsburgh…

  • MissTaken

    Nah, if it was really about 'Satan' the video would last another 9 seconds (yes, Satan is cool enough to go all the way to 66 seconds).

    • SorosBot

      66 seconds? That's really coming quickly.

  • BornInATrailer

    Look at the logos. He's really into this NASCAR thing.

  • nounverb911

    Mullah Rick? Doesn't sound Kosher Halal.

  • MissTaken

    CNN? They're still around?

    • Lionel[redacted]Esq

      It is what the olds who don't like being frighten by FOX leave their TVs tuned while they sleep.

    • redarmyzombie

      And the Dan Lemon hostage crisis is still ongoing.

  • IncenseDebate

    The politics of the cloth diaper.

  • http://www.proofnpudding.com muthalovin

    Done been logo'd.

  • SayItWithWookies

    And yet Satan has the most enduring brand — go figure.

  • Steverino247

    How about the Politics of Bullshit Made Out of Whole Cloth?

  • Oblios_Cap

    Buzzfeed? With Santorum, it's Buzzkill.

  • http://simplyleftbehind.blogspot.com/ actor212

    My God, it's got more overlaid logos than a Crooks&Liars video!

  • MissTaken

    Wow, it Blingee'd itself.

    • http://whatisawatthedevolution.blogspot.com imissopus

      On February 28, 2012, Blingee became self-aware. In a panic, they tried to pull the plug…

      • BornInATrailer

        A memetic poly-alloy.
        What the Hell does that mean?
        Liquid memes.

  • 2161911

    There's only one way to stop Satan and Santorum knows it. If elected, he must use all of America's military might to launch a full-blown offensive against the Kingdom of Hell, which is located at the center of the Earth.

    • MrFizzy

      As long as Halliburton profits, I'm all for it.

  • Baconzgood

    "If I win Baconz will do this"

    -Rick Santorum-

  • http://facethesuncastnoshadow.wordpress.com/ Mumbletypeg

    I went over to the "God Discussion" you hyperlinked, WonkJr., expecting to wade through an opinionated swamp of verbose socio-religous polemics, but I found myself there lingering just long enough to be offended by their complete misuse of basic grammatical structure and undeveloped grasp of how sentences should go.

  • UnholyMoses

    I for one welcome our CNMSNBuzzYouette overlords.

  • BaldarTFlagass

    ♫ Come on baby, do the logo-motion ♪

    I used to love me some Grand Funk!

    • MrFizzy

      We're an American Brand – woo hoo

    • GOPCrusher

      Or Little Eva.

  • widestanceromance

    Fair and branded.

  • MissTaken

    I spent many years in therapy trying to forget about those hideous multicolored LV bags girls who look up to the Kardashians carried around. All that time and money for nothing.

    • SorosBot

      The fact that there are women who look up to the Kardashians makes me sad for America.

  • chascates

    And it doesn't show the subliminal messages:

    Obama is for Sharia Gay Marriages

    Paid for by the Atheist Teachers of America

  • Lionel[redacted]Esq

    Perhaps it is for the best to only view Santorum after it has been filtered through five or so generations of tape. Full, fresh Santorum is often unpleasant.

  • Antispandex

    I thought the Republinuts liked REAL guns, not pretend finger pointy things. Be a man Rick! Use a real pistol!

  • KeepFnThatChicken

    When it gets to 70 logos, I'll be impressed. That's the number of product tie-ins we can enjoy, allegedly, with The Lorax.

  • meatlofer

    He then rotated his finger telling all the world,what they already knew………he's completely BATSHIT!

  • YasserArraFeck

    Everyone hopping aboard the Crazy Train

  • Toomush_Infer

    This, for some reason, just hits a sore spot with me today – I took the kids to the movies Sunday and had to sit through seven layers of who owned, bought, subsidized, produced and reproduced the movie before it started, while I remembered unhappily that I had paid dearly for all four tickets to the damn thing….

    • HistoriCat

      And don't get me started on DVDs! You get about 10 minutes of previews and "coming soons" which you can eventually skip but it's followed by the FBI warning – an Interpol warning – a third warning – a legal disclaimer – a legal disclaimer in Spanish – a legal disclaimer in French – and some more crap after that … and then you get to the movie.

  • Baconzgood

    Can't take a ewe into the elevator.

    • Dashboard Buddha

      Hell…can't take ewe anywhere.

  • DahBoner

    Why doesn't God have a Merch table at Santorum rallies????

  • ttommyunger

    Sorry, I can't comment on Little Ricky right now, I'm mesmerized by the newswhore's attempts to conceal their boners and erect nips while hashing and rehashing the horrific details of our latest school shooting.
