“The Pitch (Hanukkah vs. Christmas)” by Alex Salsberg

Alex Salsberg, a 2008 grad of Rochester Institute of Technology and current co-owner of Boston’s PokeGravy Studios, created this hilarious short that envisions what would happen if holidays had to be approved in a corporate boardroom like everything else nowadays. The art and animation is crude but funny as hell, and the voices made me laugh out loud.

    Last week someone commented that Burgermeister Meisterburger looked like Richard Nixon. Today I’ll comment that the boss in this bit looks like Clarence Thomas. Any takers?
