House of Clerks

The video above is “House of Clerks”, a parody of the US version of the House of Cards TV series done by Auckland University’s Law Revue. I think it’s really well done. The YouTube description sums it up:
“Follow a young Frank Underwood through his college studies as he seeks out a job with a top law firm.”
The video stars Sean Topham as the young Frank Underwood, and I think that despite a few accent lapses, he does a fantastic job. The video captures the spirit of the US TV series, and many of its plot devices, and puts them into a new context. It also features a cameo by 3 News Political Editor Patrick Gower.

Last year, they did a parody of Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines", which I also posted. I like how pointed their videos are. Well, they’re law students, so that could explain it…

In any case, well done—again.
