07:05 pm - WHOA, THAT IS ONE BIG SCARY SHARK
I sure hope Bitsy's seen this. Matt Stone and Trey Parker were tapped by the new owner of Universal to make a employee orientation video when Universal went through some changes a few years back.

Edgar Bronfman, Jr. didn't like it.

So someone put it on the Interbutt for all of us to laff at.

The number of cameos in this thing is priceless, especially the tram driver. And "MCA Recording Artist Traci Lords." And -- and -- and -- here, have a wine cooler.

Yeah, Bitsy's already seen it. If you look back at some of her posts, you'll see the deer icon and "UCS" icon. It is, in fact, a piece of pure fantasticalness.

Wow! I thought I would never like anything they did ever again... since I never did before!

But this time I was WRONG!

The great thing about that is that you've seen shots of the automated shark before, always with the most flattering angle and timing possible.

I suck at this; someone clue me in about the cameos I'm not getting (all the ones they didn't say the names of, except Michael J. Fox & Angela Lansbury)?

I want to know who did that amazing narration. He perfectly nailed that lost 1950s "accent." In the beginning, I thought they were actually repurposing vintage soundtrack material. I've tried to do those vintage voices and have never quite got it. Good work.

It was either Trey Parker or Matt Stone -- I can't remember which is which.

IT'S UCS FOR ME!

That would be Trey Parker himself. And you're right, he does a damn good job of capturing that accent, that clipped speech, and vocal inflections. He uses it all the time on South Park, too.

Oh... my head. Priceless. I tell you priceless!

Course, I'm confused, why would anyone ask Trey and Matt to do something like that and not get... that. :)

Ha! I love it. Especially the Michael J. Fox bits. Perfectly cast.
