How legal is Jon Cozart's brilliant quintuple parody, AFTER EVER AFTER ?

In AFTER EVER AFTER, make no doubt about it he uses the melodies and harmonic progressions of no less than five copyrighted Disney songs, slanders and tarnishes the good name of BP, and uses a lot of character names that are probably registered trademarks of a very powerful company. How legal is that? [more inside]

Help me find this parody of "body language" instructional videos

Looking for a viral youtube video that was a parody of "body language" instructional videos. I think it was made by some comedy troupe a few years back. There's a part where they "decode" what people are saying with their body language, e.g. someone waves at someone else and the narrator says, "I am unarmed." And I think there's a part where they show lines coming from someone's crotch and they say, "My penis is powerful!" I think it was pretty popular and had a couple million views, but I cannot for the life of me find it.

"Kringle was on top of the world, but then it all came crashing down..."

Can you recommend any good, relatively clean, satirical "true story"/"Biography"-type humor writings, videos, skits, etc about Santa, and/or perhaps other Christmas characters like Rudolph or Frosty? [more inside]

Seriously though it's hilarious.

Wizard People, Dear Reader literally made me laugh out loud at work. What other (free!) long format audio parodies, comedies, etc. should I try? I am not looking for traditional audiobooks and I'm not looking for unscripted or conversational podcasts. I'm also not looking for stand-up comedy routines. Fan Fiction is fine as long as it is relatively well done and hilarious.

where can I find the worst examples of coporate design

Where can I find some archetypal examples of corporate promotional material, either parody material like Idiocracy that is funny or real life examples that are bad? Ideally, I'd like something like the Photoshop Disasters blog but just focus on examples of bad design?
