Bounding off the success of its Internet election cartoon THIS LAND in the summer of 2004, JibJab Media Inc. just released another animation short, SECOND TERM, to coincide with the inauguration of president George W. Bush.
SECOND TERM has Bush in his cowboy duds singing "She'll Be Coming 'Round the Mountain" and features the president, conservatives, liberals, Hollywood activists and world leaders duking it out for power and influence. He also vows to amend amend the Constitu-she-un while the historical document has scrawled across it in red crayon letters, No Gay Marriage.
The cartoon can be seen at: movies.yahoo.com or at www.JibJab.com. Viewers will not be charged.
JibJab and Sunnyvale-based Yahoo announced in December 2004 an online distribution agreement giving Yahoo the exclusive rights to distribute JibJab's two most recent animated videos. The first was a musical video for the holidays starring JibJab's GRUMPY SANTA, launched in December.
Brothers Gregg and Evan Spiridellis got worldwide attention for their political parody THIS LAND.
