Two Tantasqua alumni make a satiric video

All right, let’s get this out of the way upfront. I can’t talk expertly about the subject of the video in question. Outside of a couple of youtube videos of the man, I can’t say I’ve seen Glenn Beck. We don’t have TV and since about 1994, I’ve never been in a position to see Glenn or Sean or Bill. As an equal opportunity no viewer, I have not seen Oprah or Keith or Chris or Dr. Phil. I only know them by reputation. If anyone believes me culturally deprived, please don’t let me know.

A group of lads, at least one a local high school grad, came back to Southwest Worcester County to make a video satire of Glenn Beck. The impresario of the show is a fellow named Felipe Diaz-Arango. Felipe made it under the auspices of Go Hard Films. On the blog, Still Dependent Films, he goes on about the ills of talksters and how they are unfair to Obama who Felipe takes pains to say he is not a fan of. All in all, the fellow read like Glenn Beck attacking the Glenn Becks of the world.

But, that is a digression. This, for all the team's lack of highly sophisticated technology is well done. The rant of the Glenn Beck character is over the top, as it was surely supposed to be. Local actor, Dan McNulty does great work as the manic talkmeister.

So someone did do something in Sturbridge, the next film making mecca. Felipe disparages the production values, but all things considered, he didn't do too badly. View below.
