New MTV Show Spoofs 9/11 With Children

MTV’s new comedy troupe Human Giant, the network’s latest attempt at programming something other than a Laguna Beach spin-off, has put together something called Lil’ 9/11, a mock film about the September 11th attacks featuring children playing the roles of George W. Bush and Osama Bin Laden.

The trailer [above] includes the reenactment of the now-infamous scene at Emma T. Booker Elementary School in Sarasota when Bush first learned of the attacks. Another scene shows (Lil’) Bush searching — and finding — Osama in a cave.

To be sure, there’s something unseemly about watching 6-year-olds reenact 9/11. But like any great comedy, Lil’ 9/11 is walking the tender line between hilarity and indecency.

We report. You decide.
