I haven't seen this video yet, but yeah, these guys make fun of anything and everything.

The first time I saw the Onion, it was talking about some new piece of Sony technology that supposedly didn't work, and with all the profanity that laced the "report" I thought it was something written by Xbox fanboys. Only after a moment did I realize the parody.

Omg..that was the first Onion I saw, too... fell out of the chair, it made me laugh so hard.

Come on, guys; even if Trek fans have been the laughing stock of the public for some time, (I've been told I'm 'a little touched in the head'); this is like a Weird Al parody... funny!!

If it wasn't for this "hack" and his idea, this new movie would not EXIST. Why are people so STUPID!?

I think it's more amusing that some of you guys actually took it seriously.

But with all satire, it is based on some truth. Which is somewhat unsettling.
