Taiwanese animation takes on Rick Perry's candidacy

Next Media Animation, the Taiwanese animation group known for its unique take on world events, released a new video on Republican presidential contender Rick Perry.

The video, "GOP 2012: A few thing to know about Rick Perry," takes a semi-factual look at the Texas governor's childhood, political associations and controversial policies.

"Rick Perry was born a Democrat to rancher parents deep in the heart of Texas … Perry was a backer of former vice president Al Gore. But GOP operative Karl Rove convinced Perry to switch sides," says the narrator.

Next Media Animation produces animated videos on news events from around the world. They've taken on everything from the government shutdown in Belgium to Britain's Prince Harry at a bar in Croatia.
