Brilliant parody of TSA’s security video for kids

Yesterday I posted a kids’ video from the TSA, walking children through airport screening procedures, presumably to make the whole experience less scary to kids.

At this time, I said the video was ripe for parody. And what do you know, Josh LeCash didn’t let us down.


Little dog boy: Is this the part where they see us naked?

Daddy dog: This state of the art x-ray machine looks at everyone’s business. We’re all suspect.

Little boy dog: Why is that agent’s tail wagging, dad?

Daddy dog: Looks like he just can’t wait to screen you, son.

It’s quite well done.  Enjoy (I guess).  Go watch the original TSA video first, then this parody.

    I know. And just a bit of an overlay with the ‘surrender your liberties’ pop-up.

    It was still very cleverly done, although even as I watched the original TSA version I kept asking, “Hey, where the hell are the interminable lines?”

  2. It did crack me up that the tail WAS wagging and he caught that.

  3. He couldn’t change that, it was the original video with his voice over.

    all I saw was out of sync advertisements

  5. FuzzyRabbit says:

    This video is far more honest than the official TSA video.

  6. Indigo says:

    chuckle . . . snort . . . .

    Man, I didn’t need that image. Though I suppose that powerful organizations have been described as octopodes before (q.v. Frank Norris’s The Octopus) so the reference to tentacles isn’t entirely inapt even if entirely nauseating….

  8. Indigo says:

    “All in the name of illusory security.” Amen!

  9. Indigo says:

    That subplot could be more fully explored in the tentacles version.

  10. BeccaM says:

    Pretty good, only he left out the long, interminable lines, the blue-gloved groin gropes (including of children), the repeat searches, the pointlessly random item confiscations, and how, as brown-furred dogs, that entire family likely would’ve been pulled from the line for interrogation.

  11. Monoceros Forth says:

    “Why is that agent’s tail wagging, dad?” Well, you know how those furries can get…

    This is more like reality. So is this Parody or Truth. (see my rant on the other article, rinse, repeat).
