Barely Political - Sketches

Show Summary

Barely Political - Sketches is an online video channel that features sketches that include politically themed satirical videos and parodies. Founded by Ben Relles and Leah Kauffman in 2007, the website gained early national recognition when it debuted a music video entitled, "I Got a Crush on Obama," which featured Amber Ettinger - better known now as Obama Girl during his 2008 presidential campaign. Other popular videos have covered topics such as the military, entertainment and political news. During the 2008 campaign, some politicians such as Senator Mike Gravel even appeared in website videos. Of late, Barely Political - Sketches has began to create a number of web series with videos that cater to a specific sub-genre such as music or movies. The most popular series is called "The Key of Awesome," which parodies some of the most popular (and dramatic) songs that are heard in the mainstream media today. One of the most popular pop culture songs that earned video parody treatment was British pop star Adele's hit single, "Rolling In the Deep." As of 2011, Barely Political - Sketches was acquired by Youtube after four years with Next New Networks.
