You've seen Zack King's "Vine Magic." Here's "Jach King," who shoots parodies of those Vines. [The Chrysler mentions are spoofs of Zack King having done ads for Chrysler, Pringles, etc.]

Spotted this link (not mine) to the early workshop version of the Broadway musical "Hamilton."

Deleted songs include "Congratulations" -- a much longer version of Angelica putting Alexander on blast than we hear in the final version of "The Reynolds Pamphlet." While Angelica is a great character, it seems to weaken all three characters to put so much of this out there as text instead of subtext. She confesses it all, talks about her loveless marriage and living for Alexander's letters, and that they've both wasted their time. That he's invented a new kind of stupid and ruined them all. That everything he does now has to be for Eliza's benefit. It's great to hear, but the relationships in the final musical evolve more naturally without it. Hearing Alexander's genuine love for Eliza in the heartbreak of "It's Quiet Uptown," this takes away from that a little - if Angelica laid her own feelings bare and ordered him to be better to Eliza.

"As we walk, we must make the pledge that we shall always march ahead. We cannot turn back. ... We can never be satisfied as long as the Negro is the victim of the unspeakable horrors of police brutality. ... We cannot be satisfied as long as the Negro's basic mobility is from a smaller ghetto to a larger one. We can never be satisfied as long as ... a Negro in New York believes he has nothing for which to vote. No, no, we are not satisfied, and we will not be satisfied until justice rolls down like waters and righteousness like a mighty stream." - Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., The "I Have a Dream" speech

By 1979, NBC was still in last place behind ABC and CBS, so the network decided to launch their "Proud As a Peacock" campaign. But knowing they've been downtrodden in the ratings, a parody of this jingle was done as well. Don Imus got into some trouble after playing it on his WNBC radio show, and copies of the parody were ordered to be destroyed though some of them exist.
