STATE DINNER: Here's the animated Obama/Hu Jintao party you DIDN'T see...
Taiwan-based animators spoofing American leaders who are shown bowing and kowtowing to Chinese visitors.
From wired pandas to red-carpet pandering, about the only thing that could further ratchet up this international send-up of this week's White House State Dinner is a little gate-crashing. Wait-wait, who's waltzing right this way? Yes, the reference-happy animators do not disappoint: It's the Salahis.
With a roster ranging from Rahm to Obama to Steve Ballmer, Next Media Animation unfurls a swell take on President Hu Jintao's Washington swing. Honestly, can anyone pirouette from amusing all-night benders to bruising human-right politics with quick, drawn-comic aplomb quite like NMA.tv? Each week, it seems, the writing gets a little sharper, pithier, wittier.
Besides, Next Media Animation's humor reminds us: To get to a more civil discourse, we could all use a little more satirical discourse.
"Jokie" Chan, indeed.
