WOW. More evidence in the power of YouTube to provide the world with awesomely fun new ways to make fun of our leaders! Via Radar comes this fabulous slow-mo mash-up of the Dick Cheney-hiding-in-the-bushes footage set to Radiohead's "Creep." MASTERSTROKE. It just captures the weird stalkiness of that long, pan-out shot perfectly. Whoever the C-SPAN cameraman is who captured that deserves a medal. C-SPAN must be so excited to have a fun clip. Give that man a raise!
Though: It should be noticed that, though hilarious, the regular-time version of that video seemed totally normal to me when I first saw it — to me, it looked like it played out like this: "Dum de dum de dum— oh, shit. I'm totally about to walk right through a press conference! What do I do? Should I just go? Did anyone see me? Do I look okay? Damn, why did I eat that last danish in the Situation Room? Stupid danish! My ass totally looks fat. Ugh and I hate my tie. Great, and with that cute David Gregory in the front row. I HATE MY LIFE!!!" Or, alternatively, he could have been thinking: "Those puny people. I shall crush them...when I feel like it. For now, I'll just freak them out by staring at them. David Gregory, feel my eyes boring into your skull. KNOW YE MY POWER! Bwa-ha-ha-ha-ha!"
