Wow! That was way cool! Who put that together?

All that's missing is a shot of the words "Obama for America" written on a cocktail napkin. Nice fan faction.

GG: I have no idea. Just got passed along via email. Whoever it was put a lot of labor-intensive editing into it, beyond just the inspired concept.

Hell, it's even alphabatized like the real "West Wing" credits!

And just for comic relief, Greg Kinnear as Chief Justice Roberts.

^ Heh.

OMG! I really shouldn't feel this good about a YouTube piece,UBM, but I f***ing do.

That is pretty good. Aaron Sorkin must be feeling like he should get some credit for the current state of the White House. Life imitating art and all that.

The Obenson Report said...

Cool! Will there be follow-up "episodes?" Could make for an interesting series.

Thanks for putting this up, UBM. I think I've watched this video 100 times and I'm not kidding. It's like crack -- I can't get enough of it. I'm a bit embarrassed to admit that even when I Tivo'd the West Wing, I always watched the credits. I love the music. Ugh, what a sap I am!

BTW, do you realize there's several different versions of this on youtube? Wonder who came up with it first? This one is one of the better ones, though.

Undercover Black Man said...

S.O.L., I did not know there are others versions out there.

I keep watching this one also. "West Wing" had probably the last great TV-drama theme song. (That and "The Sopranos.")

I miss the days when a theme song really worked to get you in the mood for a story.
