Show Business

With this lip-synch performance, 2boys.tv splice together iconic American popular cultural motifs with images generated by the western world’s first great propoganda machine: The Vatican.  Show Business “celebrates” and “commemorates” the rise of Cardinal Joseph Alois Ratzinger after the passing of Pope John Paul II in 2005. This collision of Broadway, Hollywood, and Catholicism reveals both the funny and frightening correlations between the church and show business.
