Crossroads GPS is drafting off the Sharknado meme with a new video it hopes will go viral, “ObamaCareNado”:
Not bad, I’d say, though it lacks the B-movie prerequisites: lots of blood and lots of bikinis.
Will there be a sequel? Might I suggest “Amnesty Shark Attack”? Same sharks, fewer natural disasters.
There’s always the danger that such knock-offs will offend. I couldn’t help but think of the hospital in Moore, Oklahoma that was hit by that massive F5 tornado in May–luckily, with no injuries.
But perhaps that’s the formula for a viral video–humor plus edginess. Maybe they’ve got it right.
