This requires some setup: Because ABC agreed to provide free air time to President Obama tonight, the season finale of ABC comedy Better Off Ted is no longer airing this evening and being rescheduled for a later date. In response, series creator Victor Fresco made this commercial parody. (FYI, the sitcom is set at a morally bankrupt megacorporation called Veridian Dynamics.) Interestingly, the show comes from Twentieth Century Fox TV, whose sister company FBN became the only broadcast network to turn down Obama’s news conference in order to run Lie To Me.
