Watch House Of Cardinals, the spoof we should have seen coming

House Of Cardinals, a House Of Cards parody that would have otherwise merely been a middling “Wouldn’t it be funny if...?” joke has, due to the grace and glory of the Internet, been transubstantiated into a surprisingly professional trailer. Tony Pasqualini stars as Francis Underwood, an ambitious cardinal who views Benedict XVI’s resignation as the perfect opportunity to set his sights on the big hat. Intrigue and egregious fourth-wall-breaking ensue. Most of the gags are what you would expect from a spoof set in Vatican City (namely, celibacy jokes and a suggestively placed altar boy), but the video is surprisingly well put together for a project with such a wafer-thin premise.
