Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Newt Gingrich,
Ron Paul and Vermin Supreme are featured in a new video spoof from
the Gregory Brothers titled Get Money, Turn Gay.
Outlandish statements said during the
current GOP presidential nominating contest are “songified” in
the video to create a hilarious music video.
In the nearly 3-minute video,
Gordon-Levitt introduces viewers to little known presidential
candidate Vermin Supreme.
“And now we will hear a two-minute
closing statement from Vermin Supreme. I'll be accompanying you on
my strat,” Gordon-Levitt says, referring to an electric guitar.
Taking questions during a New Hampshire
panel on alternative presidential candidates, Vermin Supreme sings:
“My name is Vermin, Vermin Supreme, and you can vote, you can vote
for me for president if you want.”
“One more thing. Jesus told me to
turn Randall Terry gay,” Vermin Supreme ads as he douses rival
Randall Terry with glitter. Terry in 2004 said he was disappointed
and hurt with his son Jamiel's public announcement that he is gay.
“All the ungay is melting away,”
Gordon-Levitt sings. “Not a single straight gene in his DNA.”
Gingrich's statement that poor kids
could benefit from working as janitors is also put to a dance beat.
“You can hire 30-some kids for the
price of one janitor, those kids would get money, cash money, light
janitorial duty. Get money. Cash money is a good thing if you're
After Gingrich sings, “Get that
money, that cash, get a stash,” Ron Paul slowly begins to applaud.
