I want to parody those heinous Groupon commercials...

FADE IN:

Cairo. People are being beaten by camel riding police officers.

VOICE OVER
After thirty years of subjugation under a dictator's rule, the people of Egypt are standing up for themselves.

Protests. Sit ins. Rubber bullets to faces.

VOICE OVER
The voice of Democracy, once raised, can never be silenced.

CUT TO:

Lawrence Fishburn sitting in a hot tub.

VOICE OVER
Hi. I'm Lawrence Fishburn. There are other sounds of Egypt that can't be silenced either. And because 100 of us bought at Groupon.com, we're all saving fifty percent on a collectible re-issue of The Bangles "Walk Like An Egyptian."

VOICE OVER
Save the money. Unlock great deals in YOUR town. Groupon.com

(Seriously the Rain-forest commercial came on while I was typing this. I unsubscribed from Groupon today and emailed their general info box about how offensive I found the commercials.)

(This isn't really meant to be funny, but rather, to highlight how much Groupon is trivializing important issues with their ridiculously glib commercials.)

-- END OF LINE --
