Cheezburger's $30M Gets the Taiwanese Animator Send-Up

As we reported earlier this week, Cheezburger, the company behind the LOLcat generator and Fail Blog, raised $30 million in a major round of venture funding.

I’m surprised this merits a send-up from everybody’s favorite Taiwanese animators–on the level of their takes on enhanced TSA security screenings or Lindsay Lohan getting out of jail–but our friends at Next Media Animation are savvy about the power of hanging on to an Internet meme or, in this case, an Internet meme sweatshop.

NMA depicts Cheezburger CEO Ben Huh as an evil stealer of memes, over-worker of cats and receiver of Internet flames. It’s pretty funny.
