This Unruly: a repository of video cut-ups

The parody video remix subcategory describes clips, which deliberately exaggerate an identifiable idea, person or thing with the intention of producing a comic effect. This is also known as trackjacking, where the meaning of the original clip has been substantially changed through the simple replacement of an audio track.

This is an example of détournement publicitaire (advertising hijack) - where the cut-up producer has repurposed an existing television commercial to communicate an alternative message to that originally intended.

This clip presents a playful critique of US President Donald J. Trump. It does so through reversioning House of Pain's 1992 track 'Jump Around' (with signature Cypress Hill 'squeal' sample) and appropriated footage with crude face replacements of Trump, Barack Obama, Vladimir Putin, Nigel Farage, Melania Trump and Joe Biden (as well as Bill and Hilary Clinton). While the on-screen images depict Trump is various situations, from baseball player to bomb-riding, gun-toting cowboy to fake-news tweeter and Gangnam Style dancer the lyrics provide a satirical narrative that prophesise his supposed inevitable impeachment.
