This assignment asked that I “create a supercut montage of overused dialogue, themes, motifs, filmmaking techniques, etc. for a particular character, tv show, film, and/or public figure.”
The first thing I thought of was Obama’s repetition of “let me be clear,” but it turns out that TIME magazine and the Associated Press have already compiled those into a video. I went with the next best thing: I pulled several different episodes of The Daily Show off of YouTube and used iMovie to trim, arrange, and stick them all together.
You can find the link to my supercut montage here.
