Another Bush Shoe Video
Can’t get enough of those Bush shoe video spoofs? Here’s another:
But wait! There’s more. From Texas Tailwind:
You’ve probably seen the video above already, so I don’t need to give you the back story. However, what I will tell you is that this video is already one of the most viral in the history of the Internet. Within 24 hours the video has been viewed more than 11 million times across 900 sites, and it has racked up 83,000 comments. This is hotter than SNL’s “Jizz in My Pants.”
The video has started a tidal wave of parody games and video spoofs. I’ve collected some below for your viewing pleasure.
Here is an unusual though creative call to action from the Shoe-In Blog:

In solidarity with Muntadhar al-Zeid, the Iraqi guy who threw his shoes at Bush last week, I’d like to invite any and all to this “shoe-in” protest finale. This is our last chance to express our disgust at Bush, a “goodbye kiss to a dog” as Muntie so eloquently put it. Let’s flood the Bush White House with thousands of shoes!!! This is for anyone who is disgruntled with Bush’s policies, foreign or domestic.
What am I asking you to do?
Mail (or UPS, Fed Ex, whatever) a pair of old shoes to Bush. it is that simple. Post offices, UPS stores and mailbox places usually have boxes for sale if you don’t have a shoebox at home. The whole thing will cost you about 5-8 bucks depending on the size and weight of the shoes in question.
When should you begin?
Send shoes asap and continue until the end of his term.
What if you don’t have a pair of old shoes?
Get a pair from friends or neighbors, buy an old pair at a thrift store.
What if you can’t afford five or eight bucks?
Ok, then send a photo of your shoes in an envelope.
Here is his address:
George W Bush
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Ave. N.W.
Washington, DC 20500
