Yes We Can Has Cheezburger....

I'm just as giddy for Obama as the next person, but honestly, the brand is getting a little lame. I liked when the Wachoski's bastardized Descartes and brought the Matrix to the masses. But in this instance the meme is evolving into something with far less kung fu street cred.

Exhibit A: The original "Yes We Can" video features of the Black Eyed Peas and the smoking hot Scarlett Johansen.

Exhibit B: The a cappella "Yes We Can" features nameless Caucasian high school students in various stages of tragic awkwardness. Good God. I keep thinking the hippie kid on the right is going to bust out into the Napoleon Dynamite dance routine.

Damn. There I go dashing hope again. It's so Canadian of me.
