White House video team readies Thanksgiving turkey-pardoning spoof
By Garance Franke-Ruta
White House aides prepping for Wednesday's annual turkey pardoning released a humorous video preview in advance of the goofy ceremony, which is among the silliest rituals in which the president participates.
Shot from the perspective of the pardoned turkey and featuring a voice-over by White House assistant press secretary Ben LaBolt, the film by White House videographer Arun Chaudhary features background music from the classic Western "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly" -- with occasional turkey gobble sounds added at key moments.
A new classic -- of a sort.
