CNN'S "Too Many Cooks" Parody Video is Actually Funny

Posted: Mar 20, 2015 10:05 AM

Back in October, Adult Swim released the bizarre-yet-hilarious dark comedy short film "Too Many Cooks." The short was modeled after the opening credits of various TV shows, with a pretty unexpected ending. CNN has now jumped in to the game, creating a version of the short based off of potential 2016 candidates and other political figures.

Perhaps the biggest surprise: It's actually...pretty good.

Watch for yourself here:

I don't know about you, but I was chuckling throughout most of it. I thought it was pretty even-handed and did a good job poking fun at both the left and right. It was just as absurd and zany as the original. Politics may be serious, but it's good to take a step back every now and then and laugh at the ridiculousness of it all.
