Taiwan Cartoon Takes Aim at Detroit Bankruptcy
July 23, 2013 - 2:58 pm
This cartoon made by a animation company in Taiwan gives America a pretty rough ride in skewering the Detroit bankruptcy filing.
The city’s bankruptcy filing has put Detroit in the crosshairs of every comedian from Chicago to Chattanooga.
And now Taiwan is laughing.
A company called NMA Animation, a Taiwanese animation company that pokes fun at the news of the day in satiric fashion, posted a pointed You Tube video mocking Detroit and its financial troubles.
At one point, an M&M gets shot and it takes police an hour to show up; in another scene, the RenCen swirls into a toilet. President Barack Obama takes the city’s request for a bailout, rolls it into a joint and smokes it.
What do you think? Perhaps the best takeaway is to not take it personally. The same animators posted take-downs of the new royal baby, the steroid scandal in Major League Baseball, and protests in Egypt.
This group also famously produced a video “recreating” the time Elin Nordegren did/did not attack a philandering Tiger Woods with his own golf club.
Looks like it was Detroit’s turn.
