Video skits

If you haven't seen it yet, check out this hilarious video where a guy convinces a load of female students to sign a petition to end female suffrage. Who would have thought it would be so easy?! LOL!

Re-watching that clip made me realize how much that guy resembles Napoleon Dynamite, from the film 'Napoleon Dynamite'. And here, for your viewing pleasure, is a clip from that film. If you haven't seen the film, basically what happens before this moment is that there is a contest for the school student president. And one of the candidates is this sassy sarcastic blonde, who looks down on Napoleon and his geeky friend Pedro - who is also running for president. The blonde makes her speech in front of the school, then performs a skit - to the horror of Pedro who didn't realize the candidates had to perform a skit. Pedro becomes despondent, shuffles out and makes his speech (the main selling point of his candidacy being 'Vote for me and all your dreams will come true'! LOL) then leaves. Napoleon, realizes he has to help his friend and performs a skit for him - being a dance he just learned in his bedroom from a disco dancing video.


Anyway, what's even funnier is when I was searching for that clip I came across a skit that Bill Gates did with Napoleon Dynamite. The quality of the recording isn't great as its obviously been recorded by camcorder from a Microsoft conference:

Napoleon and Bill
