Explaining the joke. by Vaughn Smith

Part II of the PS3 on Larry King Live. As usual, Larry is still going on about the font, but the PS3 just ain't answering. The jab at CNN here is that rarely do they research a caller and in this case, it's Bill Gates calling up to make the PS3 look bad. I love the fact that even though what Bill Gates says is obviously false, the headlines at the bottom of the screen indicate that indeed, there might be some truth to it (even though no one at CNN has had any time to fact check anything). That's really a jab at CBS and Dan Rather, but come on, it's the news. They're all pretty much identical.

In his typical interview style, King doesn't even clue into the fact that the questions are moronic, and poses them seriously to the PS3. What happens in this strip isn't even a caricature; it's more biography than satire. True.

Things to note:

  • I had to painstakingly change the color of Larry's shirt to match the blue of the previous shots of him in both strips. That took awhile.
  • It also took me awhile to get the look of the font and style to match that of CNN. No one probably even noticed, but it's the little details....
