Michael J. Fox and Geddy Lee[Bang! Cartoon: O Canada]

Bang! Cartoon is a website owned and operated by American football fan John Tayman featuring satirical Flash cartoons based almost exclusively on the NFL. Their newest cartoon satirizes the signing of Ricky Williams to the Canadian Football League's Toronto Argonauts and contains a cameo from a Geddy Lee caricature. Ricky and his "friend" Jimmy (a marijuana joint) are watching TV. Ricky tells Jimmy about his new "job" but Jimmy doesn't know who the Toronto Argonauts are. So Ricky pops in a promotional video for the team. The video has Michael J. Fox and Geddy Lee making a plea to US football players to play in the CFL. They represent an organization called CAFFWAB - Canadian Artists For Football Players Who Are Black. Thanks to Power Windows for digging this up and supplying the screenshot.
