Conspiracy theory rock (animation)

This thoroughly entertaining ripoff of School House Rock sends a hippy through the sausage factory of media consolidation; but it'll send those of a certain age group straight back to a thousand Saturday Mornings.

Evidently...[it] hit a little too close to home." SNL is owned by NBC which is owned by Westinghouse which, well, just watch the video. (LiP)
