In response to this musical tribute to Obama's "Yes we can" speech, News Groper has posted "No you can't, Black Eyed Peas," an Obama response in parody.
Snippet: "Stop stealing my words and talking over me please. You're ruining my pacing and carefully-planned oratory inflection. I'm glad you are inspired and want to help my campaign, but can't you play your own insipid songs with simple refrains that you beat to death? 'Let's Get Retarded' comes to mind."
It's hardly been three days, and already the shoving match between Google and Microsoft over this -- not to mention the growing list of greed-sparked suitors for Yahoo's hand -- is really, really old.
To provide comic relief, Luckie & Company's Rethink Everything launched Yahoocrosoft. The site hosts a spoof news article where -- in some insane universe not far from our own -- Yahoo counteroffers to buy Microsoft for $44.7 billion.
We're hoping the article will at some point make way for spoofy cartoons, which can't possibly be far behind.
There are a few of these, but here's our favorite from a series of new print ads from BBH UK for Levi's. Possibly because there's so much obsessive "maleness" here at Adrants we like anything with hot girls in it? Don't look shocked. You all knew it, anyways. Possibly because we were the guy drooling at every girl who passed by in the high school hallway and had a cheesy Gold's Gym T-shirt on? No matter. Love it. Love it.
Go check out the entire collection over at Scamp's blog. You'll see that BBH has made a very cohesive, simple and effective campaign. (Or so says Agency Spy)
To promote its all girl, all the time website ChickiPedia, somebody's created yet another PC versus Mac-style ad. This ad features a professorial type alongside a...well...hot chic type who each banter about what Wikipedia can offer versus what ChikiPedia can offer.
If you want to know about the population of Lima or the bat haired fox, you want WikiPedia. If you want to know about hot chicks like Adrianna Lima and Megan Fox, you want ChickiPedia. Can you guess which "pedia" will offer you Jessica Alba's measurements? Yes, we thought you could.
If you have strong positive feelings about any of the following:
- World of Warcraft
- Georges Bizet's Carmen
then you will probably still not love this.

These videos (1, 2, 3) parody both clueless focus group victims and anal spoonfeeding marketing moderators. It's for Diamond Shreddies, which, unlike boring square-shaped cereal, is diamond-shaped.
This really isn't any less lame than Millsberry adding a new charm to Lucky Charms cereal -- and we fall for that every time.
Thanks Charles for running them by us.
Ever consider funding the Sean Kimerling Testicular Cancer Foundation?
If you haven't, watching a man dressed like balls get slammed into a window might convince you to. And even if it doesn't, you might wander into a bathroom to check your 'nads, which is almost as good.
(Sidenote on the video: Giant pubes on the ice! Giant pubes ON THE ICE!)

"So what if I'm gay? You let my rainbow fade away," accuses a Care Bear in this awesome video where toys rebuke cynical adults for ditching them after puberty, thereby ruining their Christmases -- and ours -- forever.
And if our He-Man could talk, he probably would be just that ditzy.
Thanks go out to Grey, Vancouver for putting it together.
If you're on the hunt for creepy new fables, find out how the Christmas tree fairy came to be. It's twisted.
If you, like every other college student suckling from Facebook, enjoyed the first Powerthirst ad -- a spoof on testosterone-rich energy drink ads that make ridiculous promises -- then you'll be marginally interested in watching the spot for Powerthirst Rocket Edition, brought to you by Picnicface and College Humor.
Now your favorite non-existent drink comes toting new flavors (MANIMAL! FIZZBITCH! GUN!) and new words for your lexicon like "beveryman," "preposterone" and "douche-fag."
And not only will you be preposterously good at sports, you'll win at irony, art and "everything forever!"
