Escalation

Escalation ★★★★

A short by Ward Kimball, one of Disney's famous "Nine Old Men", that is a criticism of Lyndon B. Johnson's *escalation* of the War in Vietnam. He does this first with a depiction of LBJ as a parade float, and his phallic nose getting longer and more pronounced, eventually resulting in a climax, leading into a montage of explosions, tits, americana, and carnage.

Very not Disney. Very good.
