Moments after the inauguration of the forty-fifth President, Barack Obama and his best friend Joe Biden were escorted to a secret lab, run by a team of the world’s greatest scientists and occasionally Elon Musk.
Obama and Biden were asked to take off all of their clothes and hold very still in a fetal position until they felt a painful tingling sensation.
They would awake to find themselves inside of their younger selves. Driven to find each other, and together, change history for the better.
Their only guide on this journey is Neil deGrasse Tyson. A brilliant scientist from the present who appears in the form of an augmented reality that only they can see and hear.
And so they find themselves leaping throughout their own lifetime. Looking for the best in people… Striving to right injustice wherever they find it. Forever hoping that their next jump in time will take them to a future that’s not scary and fucked up.
A world which they can proudly call… home.
While I’m not the biggest cartoon guy, something about this project peaked my interest. It’s a kickstarter by a Canadian director named Adam Reid and has just surpassed its first goal of one hundred grand. With the shit going down in The White House right now, Obama is may be more popular than when he was president. Dudes just strutting around on Richard Branson’s beach in a backwards hat all – ” I told you that shit wasn’t easy” and “I guess I wasn’t so bad was I”. A cartoon featuring the former POTUS is exactly what we need, and I think it would be a huge hit. I mean look at these screen grabs.
Whats not to like. Young Barry O and Joey B smoking doobs, going back in time kicking Trumps ass and saving the day, all at the direction of an imaginary Neil Degrasse Tyson? Sign me up.
