CNN Digital Wins the ‘Too Many Cooks’ Parody Contest

It takes a lot to make an election stew...

Do you work in politics? If so, we’re very sorry.

“Too Many Cooks” is almost six months old, but we feel secure in saying that CNN’s digital team won the unofficial contest to create the best parody of the Adult Swim hit.

The video focuses on all the players in the 2016 election so far, and it’s a bit much. We love the inclusion of go-to “advisors” like Paul Begala and James Carville.

As the CNN digital team told our sister site TVNewser this morning, the project took several months to complete.

CNN’s Chris Moody says:

“…the internet is a nice space to experiment with new ways of storytelling. We thought it would be a creative way to tell the story.”

Agreed; now do a PR version. We hear Mark Penn is available…
