Make Your Own “Evil Chinese Professor” Parody [CONTEST]

October 25th, 2010 | 9 comments | Posted by Jen

Just in time for Halloween, fiscal conservative think-tank Citizens Against Government Waste (CAGW)–which has been tied to big tobacco and corrupt lobbyist Jack Abramoff–has released a campaign ad depicting a scary vision of the future in which the Chinese have taken over everything:

According to Ben Smith at Politico, the ad’s an homage to a 1986 Ridley Scott-directed ad that was paid for by CAGW’s founder, and it’s produced by Larry McCarthy, who also produced the 1988 Willie Horton ad that did considerable damage to Democrat Michael Dukakis’s presidential campaign by fueling white voters’ fear of black men.

But it’s 2010, and what Americans need to be afraid of is…China!

And we are afraid. We are VERY afraid.

So afraid that we want to make this ad less scary–and race-baiting and fear-mongering and just kinda baaaaad–and more fun. And that’s where we need your help. Campus Progress Action has already done their own parody, and we want to see yours. So we–along with 8Asians, Angry Asian Man, and Reappropriate–are making it a CONTEST. Because Asians love contests. Because Asians love to win. Which is why we’re taking over everything!

Here’s what you need to do:

Download the .ZIP archive, including the subtitle-stripped .MOV file and .RTF text file transcript of the original “Chinese Professor” video HERE.

Re-subtitle the footage and upload your parody to a video sharing service like YouTube or Vimeo. Probably Vimeo, since CAGW has already taken down the Campus Progress Action video on YouTube.

Send the link to your vid to evilchineseprofessor@angryasianman.com. The best three videos as judged by the sponsoring bloggers will win a prize (and our Hardass Asian Approval, which is, like, worth gajillions).

Deadline to submit is November 27.

Now get crack-a-lacking, or we’re gonna get EVIL on your ass!
