Stuffed shirt leftwing elitist Harry Connick Jr. evidently has no sense of humor. Watch as he imposes his cheerless political correctness on this wholesome Australian television audience.
You may view Connick's overreaction to this innocent bit of fun at about the four minute mark. Cheers to the host for standing up to Connick and explaining the humor. And cheers to the brave Australian commenters at Youtube, like "uaapd", who points out:
Clearly, it was a PARODY, not an attack on the Jacksons personally, or anyone else, black, white or green. How's your economy going – no recession here. In case the yanks hadn't noticed, you aren't the centre of the universe, but we have sufficient self esteem to ignore aspects of your culture that offends us. Please do the same.
and "doingitlive1" for this:
I was going to write a whole lot of crap but it comes down to one thing really…."get f**ked Harry, I am sick of uptight, politically correct w&nkers" I was offended by the fact that the yanks elected BUSH as president…now that is offensive world wide. …..If your too uptight to get it please stay on your side of the hemisphere and please please please stop starting all the wars
And anyway, it's not as though there are black people in Australia. At least none who can afford a television.
