The Daily Show – #FUCO

A little teamwork can’t hurt anybody. I’m not into politics, but I found the video interesting. Plus, I can’t get over Hasan’s reaction when he gets interrupted by Trevor Noah.  Thoughts?

  1. What makes this skit work is its simplicity. The idea that both parties could work together on an issue because its the right thing to do is absurd–and funny. I thought the Trevor Noah bit was funny but took away from the video.

  2. This cat and dog fight has progressed to a point where in order to inspire peace we must put it into a song. I agree with Connor, the simplicity of the idea of cooperation is what ties this skit together. Politicians on both sides of the equation have given a myriad of reasons as to why they stand their ground and remain firmly divided on certain issues. While by doing so they’ve limited their ability to “get shit done.” We have the choice to hug out our differences and learn to “fucking cooperate”, instead of spending our valuable time arguing and sulking about our lack of progress. While we can continue to debate solutions to certain issues, those issues continue to affect the lives of the people they are responsible for.

  3. This was a funny take on a major issue. Videos like this need to be made to start discussions that should already be happening. It said a lot in its simplicity and has the potential to make an actual impact. Trevor Noah is proving that he belongs on The Daily Show.

  4. I thought this was a pretty clever and funny video. Although I do think it was a tad too long. Maybe that’s just my short attention span talking. I think videos like this get the ball rolling on important issues. The video is simple enough to understand, yet intriguing enough to strike an interest.

  5. Funny, but way too long. And I could have done without the faint background laughter. What I like best is it looks like something anybody could have made.

  6. I agree with Connor that simplicity made it work. I really felt for Hasan in this video. It was not directly funny.. I had more the thought that “I wish the U.S. was more like this.”

  7. I am going to agree with what others have said, it just seemed long for it’s purpose. I thought it was alright, nothing to write home about, but entertaining at least. I do always appreciate music. It was a good take on a big issue, but it’s execution just wasn’t as good as it could have been…

  8. I think that this was funny to a point, but it could have been trimmed a little to make it funnier. The sarcastic reaction to the parties cooperating worked very well. The Trevor Noah skit was distracting from the joke.

  9. I thought this was kind of boring. The joke of Democrats working with Republicans isn’t funny enough to do an entire skit on it. I think it was a little long and this caused me to forget about the funny points I did find.

  10. I found the majority of the jokes here to be amusing and agree that our nation is ind desperate need of some cooperation. I have to say I’m so tired of all the hashtag and frozen jokes. They’ve been done to death and it feels like content creators are just shoe-horning pop culture references into everything they can whether or not the references actually add anything to the subject matter because they feel, and it’s sadly probably true, that the general population will nod their head and say “Hey! I know what that is! They get me!”.

  11. I only had one problem with this sketch. It had a lot of really great bits within it like the original concept, and that concept was executed beautifully in the beginning. Then, the section with Trevor Noah hit it out of the park again. I used to be an English tutor, and I remember that I dreaded the days where I was to be observed by a professor who was taking notes. It really is distracting, and the two captured that element outstandingly well. I liked the sort of style parody of getting kids to sing about some social issue, and I think there was a hint that they were poking at the shamelessness of that kind of enterprise, but I also think maybe it would’ve worked better if they had rehearsed that scene a bit more because the kids were a little all over the place, but that’s what you get with working with kids. Kids are great, and there are some fantastic kid actors out there, but it seems like they’re kinda hard to find, and that was a little distracting to me.

  12. To be honest I didn’t really find this funny. It was annoying to watch and I’m not sure why their making fun of a democrat and republic agreeing with the same subject. I mean isn’t that a good thing they are on different parties yet can come together to make a change? I think so. In my opinion, that isn’t something to be mocked. Also, when Trevor came on screen and kept interrupting that was a waste of my time and I just wanted them to get to the point already. Idk I could be missing something, but I thought it was a pointless joke for parody skit.

  13. The interview in general is comedic because of the moderators facial expression. Hilarious. Identifying the idiotic justification of the prison population without fixing it is a repetitive cycle in politics and law. Its true.

  14. I thought this was funny, but maybe it could have been a little shorter? The interview part was my favorite, the song didn’t really do it for me. But yeah, I agree, FUCKING COOPERATE

  15. I like the way this video breaks down the political system in which we live in. It really pokes fun at the idea of working beyond the political lines in order to achieve the best for social welfare. The ideas of bipartisan cooperation is presented as a revolution, and in many ways shows how our broken the system we live in is. It should not be a miracle for individuals to work beyond party lines, yet sadly, it is.

  16. I think this brings up something a lot of politically-minded Americans have been tired of for a very long time: politicians acting like children when they don’t get their way. Frankly I think it’s high-time for cooperation in Washington, though I’m not sure if a song will make it happen.
