The brilliant Andy Cobb from Second City has put together a parody video of those annoying Exxon-Mobil ads telling us how friggin wonderful they are. Exxon – Energy Everywhere:
America's oil industry is terribly misunderstood. When a lot of people
hear "364 pipeline spills in 2012" they think it's a big mess, like a
nearly realized advent calendar of crap. What they fail to see is a
revolutionary energy distribution system about to achieve NATIONWIDE
And remember, that's not just gas or oil flowing
through the streets of Arkansas–it's dilbit, the thick toxic
hydrocarbon stew produced by tarsands. So roam wherever, and take your
energy source with you! That s–t is sticky as hell, it's not like
you're going to be able to get it off.
Video below the fold.
BONUS: Stephen Colbert weighed in on Exxon's tar sands oil spill in Mayflower, Arkansas. He mocks Exxon's cleanup efforts as they "Try to put the Pegasus pipeline oil back underground where it came from and employs a time-honored cleanup technique pioneered by drunk guys."
