Barney's Last Hurrah
President Bush's dogs, Barney and Miss Beazley, have been making curiously high-budget Christmas videos every year he's been in office. I always look forward to them. They're always like 8 minutes long and make me laugh so hard. My fave was 2005's "A Very Beazley Christmas", in which Barney got jealous of his new little sis Miss Beazley and all the attention she was getting.
This year's video is, sadly, the last one, and it looks kind of crappy compared to the previous ones. But that only makes it more awesome, obvs.
The First Family's acting SO bad. And so is the dream sequence animation of Barney and Miss Beazley as divers and gymnasts at the Beijing Olympics. (I'm serious. Make sure you watch until 3:05, when there are some VERY high-profile surprise guests!)
I wonder if the President enjoys doing these videos or if he's like "Ugh, one of THESE again? Boy am I glad it's the last one."
One thing's for sure. Those darn dogs are CUTE as lil buttons.
