Announcer…..Chris Parnell

Announcer: [ over picture of Saddam Hussein ] He was the Middle East’s most ruthless despot, that iron-fisted tyrant with no reason to go. Until.. [ show picture of President George W. Bush ] ..he came into office.

From the network that brought you “E.R.”, “Friends”, and “Good Morning, Miami”, comes a landmark television event.

“The War On Iraq”. It’s the story of a son’s promise, to finish the job his father didn’t. It’s the story of oil.. oppression.. nd moustaches – lots and lots of Tom Selleck moustaches.

With special guest star: Tony Blair. Are Tony Blair and George W. falling in love? Find out in.. “The War On Iraq”. Coming to NBC this fall.. or possibly December.. or in the new year.. Nobody seems to know for sure.

Voiceover: [ quickly ] In the event we don’t attack Iraq, NBC will air encore editions of “Fear Factor”, starring Joe Rogan.
