About two years ago the brilliant but anonymous mind behind YouTube’s popular “Bad Lip Reading” channel uploaded a spoof of President Donald Trump’s inauguration. That hilarious video went mega viral, accumulating nearly 40 million views.
Nineteen months have passed, and the channel is back at it again with a new video that spoofs one of White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ recent briefings.
Like with the previous video, the anonymous music/video producer behind the channel overdubbed the original clip’s vocal content with his voice. And just like last time, his hilarious overdubs perfectly matched everyone’s lip movements.
Watch what happened below:
Right off the bat this fictionalized version of Sanders made it clear she hated being at the briefing and talking to America’s “idiot” press.
“I need a drink … Okay idiots, are you ready? I just can’t stand the faces of you people — those dead, questioning eyes. You dummies don’t matter,” she said.
And right off the bad the media made it clear that the questions they intended to ask Sanders were as dumb as dirt.
“What happens when I scratch a horseradish all over my face?” Kevin Corke of Fox News asked.
“Now why would you do this?” Sanders replied.
“Well, I’m definitely gonna scrape it somewhere,” he then said.
Sanders then switched her attention from “Greedo,” as she called Corke, to “Mangy,” her not-so-endearing nickname for another White House press corps member.
“My beard itches pretty bad. Is this because of my bugs?” this member asked.
“You have literal bugs?” Sanders replied.
“Uh-huh – I think it’s mainly bedbugs,” he said.
“Okay, you gotta go,” Sanders added.
This hilarious back-and-forth exchange between Sanders and several White House press corps members continued for about three minutes. During that time she referred to the members as everything from “Stank” to “Lanky,” “Chump,” “Creature,” “Chocolate Curl,” “Turd,” Jeeves,” “Chachi,” “Stink Leg” and more.
Below is the original inauguration clip that made the “Bad Lip Reading” channel famous:
What makes the press briefing video so amusing is that it’s an exaggeration of both the stupid questions often asked by the media and the very visible tension and animosity between Sanders and the White House press corps. It’s as if the media are constantly trying to ensnare Sanders in a gotcha’ movement.
What likewise makes the video so amazing is that after Sanders’ father, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, shared the clip on Twitter, it attracted widespread support from everyone, including even from those liberals who usually don’t care too much for his tweets:
Holy SHIttttt Huckabee you finally did it you finally posted something really funny!! Even though you didn’t make it it’s hilarious especially since the real version of Sarah talking to the press is much much worse, but it’s Friday so you get a pass video was very funny ?
