There’s one silver lining (if you can call it that) of the Gulf Oil Spill: Funny spoof videos! The latest one comes from Greenpeace: Cleaning up an oil spill’s impossible, so just clean up your image — with ScamWow!

Because I’m not a late-night TV watcher, I’d actually never actually heard of ShamWow, the cleaning product Greenpeace’s spoof is based on. But the video’s funny anyway, complete with a scientist who gets the ScamWow brand name wrong and a “We’ll throw in a legal expert for free!” pitch.
