Watch: “The New York Times” fight “The Wall Street Journal” in a Taiwanese animation

Pin it

Taiwan's Next Media Animation have been responsible for the thrush of very funny CG recreations of our most shocking news stories. There was Al Gore masseuse scandal, Tiger Woods' car crash and most recently, The Great Readership War between The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal.

It's almost as if these faceless Taiwanese animators have a better grasp on publishing than NYT or WSJ, weird! Like proud internet parents, we've noticed Next Media's tastes maturing over time – from the crude rendering in the Tiger Woods video, to the slightly funnier, albeit bluntly vulgar Al Gore video, to the story a shark-finned Rupert Murdoch through the frame of Broadway classic, A West Side Story. Smart. Funny. Weird.
