Q&A, a panel show on TV here in Australia, played my cartoon Parliament Deathmatch last night. Two of the three people in the cartoon, Leader of the Opposition Malcolm Turnbull and Deputy Prime Minister Julia Gillard, were on the panel and had no choice but to watch it!
I was a little disappointed that presenter Tony Jones introduced it as a "video manga fantasy", I think calling it that trivialised it somewhat. The comment within the cartoon is about Prime Minister Kevin Rudd's lack of substance and Deputy Prime Minister Julia Gillard's leadership ambitions. Also he said "Parliamentary" instead of "Parliament", I guess my title must be grammatically incorrect or something, oh well.
You could skip the first 50 seconds, I left it there to include the shot of the guests at the very start.
The audience was made up entirely of 16-25 year olds, an age group I think is more likely to find this sort of humour funny. However, because all the topics on the show were youth issues, it wasn't nearly as interesting as their shows usually are, so I suspect less people than usual stuck around to watch the very end.
