"Eye on the Flu Shot" (One Clever Glance)

This has to be one of the funniest things I've seen in a while. Please be aware that (being diabetic) I do get a flu shot every year, and that my offering this video here doesn't mean that I am either for or against H1N1 flu vaccine.

To tell you the truth, I don't have an opinion on H1N1...I'm officially on the fence. (Confounded, so to speak.) And besides, it's not even available for people my age where I live, diabetes notwithstanding, so I don't have to make a decision one way or the other. But this Saturday Night Live-esque video is cleverly done, and worrisome things always go down better with a bit of humor, right?

Be sure to hang with it to the end, as it builds to a sort of extended punch line. Enjoy!

(Don't forget to reach over and click off my playlist to the right. You do need to actually hear the guy.)

the present 'powers that be' scare me and i've never been a big flu shot person. got one once and had the worse flu that year that i ever remember. so i'm not opting into it for me or my kids. we'll stay home if we need to.

Laughed out loud at this one! Thanks for a needed dose of humor (pun absolutely intended).

I did make my kids all get the H1N1, just to protect Eve. If I hadn't had a brand-new baby, I think I would still be officially on the fence like you.

No H1N1 shots here...not until they've been time-proven...just like the 1st edition of anything, the 2nd Edition is always "New & Improved"! cute post!

Super cute!!! I laughed so hard at this sketch!

KC Mom said...

That's exactly what I think of the flu shot.
No fence sitting on this one for me...I'll take my chances.

Great video! I do wonder but made my kids get the H1N1 because wrestling does a number on the immune system and because Gma lives with us. I know she is supposed to be immune but...

Love the slightly satirical take on the flu shot- what a great video.

I'm also a fence sitter on the regular flu vaccine, I'm anti-h1n1, I was reading an article about what is happening to make the vaccine go further-if you will. An adjuvent is being added to make it stretch, and the one that they are using has been proven to be not safe for human use. Exciting right- love how they tell you the ingredients

Hilarious! And it gives a little food for thought. I, too am a fence sitter, though leaning more to the "its all hysteria" mindset, but that is just me. Thanks for the laugh though!
