The Capital Steps are a comedy troupe that satirizes what goes on in American politics. They may make fun of our government, but in doing so they often bring attention to problems.

In this parody of Don McLean’s American Pie, the comedy troupe points out the problems that arise when we buy so many of our products, including much of our food, from China. It’s funny, but it will make you think, too. The video is put together by HerBunk Productions.


Thanks to La Vida Locavore blog for bringing this video to my attention.
