Blagojevich CGI Reenactment: Chinese News Site Recreates The Blago Scandal In 90 Seconds

Posted: Updated:

After Tiger Woods, Sarah Palin and Justin Bieber, it seemed like only a matter of time before it happened to Blago.

And lo and behold, on Thursday, Next Media Animation released its CGI rendition of the Illinois governor's corruption, trial and verdict. (Scroll down to watch.)

As is often the case with NMA re-enactments (like the one of Tiger Woods' car crash that popularized the genre), it's both accurate and surreal, with a healthy dose of silliness. And all of the best details are in there: the contemplated Oprah appointment, the "Celebrity Apprentice" run, the excessive profanity and of course the hair.

The video, complete with Chinese narration and wacky sound effects, captures in a glorious 90 seconds the bizarre carnival atmosphere that the Blagojevich scandal has had for the last twenty months. (Hat tip to Chicagoist for bringing this gem to our attention.)
