This intensely of-the-moment 'Vice' Jerry Sandusky mash-up is a slightly eerie mixing of current pop culture happenings.

Reflecting both the mass coverage of the controversial Jerry Sandusky trial regarding child molestation charges as well as the popularity of 'Call Me Maybe,' this is a purposely bizarre video getting tons of hits. Featuring many clips from television and a couple of the Carly Rae Jepsen covers, the video is a decidedly strange mix-up. Sure to stir up almost as much controversy as the Sandusky trial, the oddly musical clip is a statement-making creation sure to generate buzz. Purposely disturbing and definitely different, this clip and those like it by the magazine will appeal to those knowing what they're getting into.

A satire and criticism of news media, the video is a sporadic capture of what mainstream North American media looks like at the moment.
