funny or die spoofs racist hoekstra campaign ad

Well, here we go. It was inevitable and very necessary for someone to come up with a parody of that racist bullshit Pete Hoekstra campaign ad. I mean, come on, it's so awful the thing is practically a parody of itself.

So... check out comedian Ali Wong as the now-infamous "yellowgirl" in this spoof from Funny or Die (with a surprise appearance from "Jeremy Lin"):

I like Ali, and I like that they're calling out Pete Hoekstra on his ignorant antics -- Hoekstra's ad certainly looks like it was made by someone who has only a vague cursory knowledge of "Asia." Ali and Co. just take it one step further.

I don't think this video quite lives up to its potential, but it does get funnier with subsequent views. ("Sounds like dinner!") And someone should definitely register the domain PeteIsARACIST.com.
