MTV To Lampoon Clinton With 'Virtual Bill' LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - As if President Clinton didn't have enough worries, he now faces lampooning on an upcoming MTV special called "Virtual Bill." While the real president is delivering his State of the Union address Jan. 27, the music cable network's computer-generated animated version will present his own "State of the Music Videos" from a virtual Oval Office. The sax-playing president's doppelganger will "try to prove that he's hip to our youth and express his views on the videos of some of today's top artists, including Wu-Tang Clan, Prodigy, Mariah Carey, the Rolling Stones and Sean 'Puffy' Combs," said an MTV statement. "Virtual Bill" will also comment on youth culture and what MTV described as "cool news." The character's voice is provided by Scott Dikkers, the editor-in-chief of the satirical newspaper, "The Onion." The real Clinton appeared on MTV a few years ago and famously revealed a preference for boxer shorts over briefs. But his penchant for light entertainment has its limits: he was angered last year when a news clip featuring him was used for the film "Contact."
