Quite funny. Also a good way to pop people's misconceptions.
The non-doing of any evil,
The performance of what's skillful,
The cleansing of one's own mind:
This is the Buddhas' teaching.

I'm super offended by this video! Luckily, he has a guide on that too!

Even so, on the rubbish heap of blinded mortals the disciple of the Supremely Enlightened One shines resplendent in wisdom." Dhammapada: Pupphavagga

this is wrong speech, satire or not. finding humor in it i believe indicates wrong view, wrong intention; moreover, though he is making fun of a group and not an individual, it's still divisive
