34. Mel Brooks has always been one of the best at being political

by not only pointing out society's flaws, but pointing out how wrong they are by making us laugh really hard at them. Blazing Saddles is one of my favorite movies of all time. It has aged, as we all have, but the humor and the point are still as sharp today as then. I got a boxed set of Mel's movies last Christmas, and I was just looking through them last night to pick a "cheer me up, laugh me down" movie. It's sometimes easy to forget how many well known, hilarious movies Mel Brooks has given us until you're holding a fistful all at once. What an amazing man!

This is a great ad. It was timely and generous of Mel to make it.
