Another Taiwanese Al Gore News Cartoon (Yeah, This One’s Even Weirder)

Last week we wrote about NMA News, the Taiwanese news service that covers stories through animated retellings, and their coverage of the 2006 Al Gore sex scandal. Well, while their animation may only be at the level of bad video game cut scenes, NMA News isn’t dumb. Apparently realizing how many hits they got from American blogs, NMA has created a follow up video (and helpfully translated the YouTube description to English). The best part? Not only do they appear to be pandering to Americans, they’re also pandering to the American Right by presenting all Gore fans as brainwashed hippies. Let the fun begin…

The new video includes all of the latest developments in the case, including those damn stained pants. However, it’s the little bits of cartoon insanity that NMA adds that is really making them my new favorite news source. In addition to the hippies, we also get some fun humping poodles. There’s even a cameo for none other than Monica Lewinsky! So check out the video but be warned. After watching this, you’re going to start wishing that all of our news was animated by crazy people from Taiwan.

ps. If you want further proof that the people at NMA are secretly geniuses, check out their version of the Anna Chapman spy story. They’re smart enough to know that pictures of a sexy Russian spy are much more fun than their cartoons could ever be.
