Mad TV: "Umbrella" Parody - Hillary Sings "Obama" genre: Tongue-In-Cheek & Video-Philes

This is one of the funnier Mad TV video parodies I've seen in a while. It is a parody of Rihanna's music video for the song Umbrella. In the Mad TV version titled Obama, the artist is Hillary Clinton and it includes a feature appearance by Barack Obama.

As the video unfolds, the two are apparently much more than rivals for the Democratic presidential nomination. It seems that this is one instance where Hillary would rather be "under" her formidable opponent.

For those who haven't seen the original music video for Umbrella, I've also included it below the Mad TV version.

Bill Maher: New Rules - 11/02/07 genre: Tongue-In-Cheek & Video-Philes

Bill Maher shares his latest rants on a number of issues including an Obama "sneak peak", Dennis Kucinich's UFO sighting, the upcoming holiday season, "tasty" Totino's pizza recall, and his dislike of chop sticks.

He closes with one of his on target assaults...this time dissecting the growing divide between the have's and the have-nots. Maher talks about the Bush veto of expanded health care coverage for poor children, the tax advantages for the rich, and the fact that so many Americans vote against their own self-interest.
