Spitting Image (2020)|
In this political satire show, USA President-elect, Joe Bidden is invited to join the Illuminati, described as "the chamber of the chosen" and claiming to "control currency, manipulate markets and communicate with the dead." There is also a "free breakfast buffet and a pyramid scheme for membership recruitment."
"Well, it's in the logo; it's not as if we're hiding it."
Biden responds by asking "What's the point of a secret organization that everyone knows about and you can't get anything you don't already have?" [00:07:50].
The bit is reused in episode 9, when they allow Boris Johnson to join but only if he doesn't tell anyone he's a member. [00:11:20]
It bears repeating that the eye and pyramid emblem was not used by the Bavarian Illuminati, and there is no evidence that there is any current group using the name or the emblem.
