Here's to the crazy ones. The ones that change things.
Have you seen Paris Hilton's controversial new commercial for Carl's Jr burgers? Watch it, then watch my remix. Or, simply enjoy the remix alone in a dark room - viewer's choice today.

That was great-- you should send that to Adbusters.

Who's the chick?

Y'know...this is slightly off topic, but I really hate that Paris Hilton has co-opted the catch phrase, "That's hot." Because I used to say that all the time, and now I can't, but sometimes I still do ... and ... and ... ARRRGGH! Fricken Paris Hilton...!! You have enough already ... just let me have my easy descriptor!

Well, I'm sure this is heavily illegal to take that video and remix it that way ... lord knows how many copy right thingies you violated ... now that I think about it aren't you the trouble maker who goes around trying to video tape bands illegally all the time? ... I'm tempted to try and turn you in to someone somewhere and get the reward, but, in stead I'll just say that you're mix was definately cool, creative, and much better than the original .. good job ...

naw man, it all falls under fair use - it's criticism.
at least, until i get a cease-and-desist. :-)

She actually has an ass! You can hardly tell in all the tabloid pictures, she usually looks flat as a board, and it looks like someone ironed her face. And she's really dumb... and stuff. Must be nice to get paid a lot for acting like a hooker.

This is really great! I've watched it about 5 times and it still makes me laugh and a bit contemplative. It's like Paris and the Apple commercial are so oppositional, that, in a way, they seem to fit.

ok at first i was like what the fuck is going on? because i hadnt seen the original ad. and i forgot about the VO for the apple ad. nice mash up.
i fucking hate paris hilton though.
i wish tiny blonde was not considered hot, it drives me crazy. i don't look like that and tons of other beautiful women don't look like that. yet every magazine cover has that waify blond disinterested come hither model. and it makes confident, beautiful women cringe because we both hate and are totally jealous of this woman's body; the dichotomy astounds and infuriates me.

good.. real good...hadn't seen it either so it took me a while to work out what the hell was going on... the worry is that the remix becomes viral and people start believing that paris will change the world? maybe she has already.. i don't read those papers so i haven't kept up!!!

yeah, if you see this first it seems like this is the commercial and it's very confusing. i think that's good, in an andy kaufman sort of way.

I (still) love this. Well done.
