What Happens If Obama Loses???? (We’re Blaming You Mom and Dad!)

Here’s a little ditty that lays it all out for you.  Enjoy!  (Are we being punked by this video?)

For those of you who can’t bear to watch the video, here are the lyrics:

Imagine an America
Where strip mines are fun and free
Where gays can be fixed
And sick people just die
And oil fills the sea

We don’t have to pay for freeways!
Our schools are good enough
Give us endless wars
On foreign shores
And lots of Chinese stuff

We’re the children of the future
American through and through
But something happened to our country
And we’re kinda blaming you

We haven’t killed all the polar bears
But it’s not for lack of trying
Big Bird is sacked
The Earth is cracked
And the atmosphere is frying

Congress went home early
They did their best we know
You can’t cut spending
With elections pending
Unless it’s welfare dough

We’re the children of the future
American through and through
But something happened to our country
And we’re kinda blaming you

Find a park that is still open
And take a breath of poison air
They foreclosed your place
To build a weapon in space
But you can write off your au pair

It’s a little awkward to tell you
But you left us holding the bag
When we look around
The place is all dumbed down
And the long term’s kind of a drag

We’re the children of the future
American through and through
But something happened to our country
And yeah, we’re blaming you

You did your best
You failed the test

Mom and Dad
We’re blaming you!

12/23/12 Uupdate:  This video has disappeared entirely from the internet.  I cannot find the video footage anywhere now.  The ad was  an independent project by  Silverstein & Partners founders Jeff Goodby and Rich Silverstein. It was unrelated to the agency’s work.  It was a personal agenda piece.  These are the same people who brought you the “got milk” campaign and many other well known national ad campaigns.
