Did William do the original Cookie Monster version too?  

I really liked it when it came out a couple of years back.

Call me thick, but I don't get the point of this clip - unless it's to run down black folks maybe?

Granted I'm an Australian of English origin and so a lot of US humour goes over my head, but please explain anything more to this clip than is just amusing animation, like Daffy Duck, Mickey Mouse, Bugs Bunny, etc., all of which I loved as a kid.

Interesting to note the comments in YouTube about people having seen this clip in Peter Sellars'  "Being There" - a portrayal of child-like innocence in a superficially adult man.

In any case: what does your link have to do with ViVa AFRika?

You must be doing something wrong WB, 'cos you just got another 5 from me.

OK I've got a bit of an ulterior for posting this comment, because I'd like to post this link:   which is very relevant to far more than just Africa; but because the video is maybe too long for most to bother watching, I'll note that it can be skipped until about 35:00.

Not wrong there, though you nearly caught me out of left field ... or maybe mid-field, since old paradigms have lost their lustre and only fools still cluster around ideologies.

There was a young lefty from France,

Who thought he'd refuse Sarky a dance,

So he waltzed with Hollande for a lark.

And is still just as much in the dark.

(Attributed to Iva Brush, the painters poet.)

"It is part of the general pattern of misguided policy that our country is now geared to an arms economy which was bred in an artificially induced psychosis of war hysteria and nurtured upon an incessant propaganda of fear. While such an economy may produce a sense of seeming prosperity for the moment, it rests on an illusionary foundation of complete unreliability and renders among our political leaders almost a greater fear of peace than is their fear of war."
Speech to the Michigan legislature, in Lansing, Michigan (15 May 1952), published in General MacArthur Speeches and Reports 1908-1964 (2000) by Edward T. Imparato, p. 206
