Via HotAir, whoever’s made these parodies has gone to some trouble to hide their tracks.  Their fictional business site Chimera Global Holdings is also a parody.

Big G:

Bankor the Profit:

Ariel Stryker:

Parts & Labor:

Kaptain Korn:

Update: The creator is John Papola of Emergent Order.  What follows was speculation as to who it was before Papola revealed himself.

Suspects for who created these parodies go across a broad political spectrum.  AP notes that with the inclusion of “Labor”, it’s probably not a leftist group.  The Kaptain Korn part seems rather anathema to the left, as they’re big fans of ethanol to fight against Manbearpig, but I’m sure we’ll find out soon enough.  Plus the general theme is one of government influence and cronyism (duh) creating wasteful spending and crushing small businesses, and the Chimera Global Holdings website includes a dig against Obamacare.  Maybe Reason or Gillespie, maybe Malkin, maybe Gutfeld or TV’s Andy Levy.  Or maybe it’s Ariana Huffington and her creative team just got a little overboard.

Some folks are suspecting Emergent Order, who were part of the folks behind the very well-produced Hayek & Keynes rap battles.

I’m gonna go with a long shot and suspect that after a few crazy commercials years ago leading to a slow, subtle return to social media with a new team, this could be Herman Cain.

Or, my last guess, is that it’s part of a viral marketing scheme for a movie remake… where the original included parody commercials:

    Solid truth in a cartoon package. Very well done.
