OK, I know that there is plenty to say about this video, including Megaupload's relationship to infringement, UMG's questionable takedown notice (unless there's something about the music itself, presumably the theory is that its artist contracts require transfer of all copyright in their works to UMG, but that doesn't make UMG the copyright owner of any of this video, only the possessor of a cause of action for breach of contract; I smell a 512(f) claim). But for all that, what I am really thinking when I watch the video is that this is the bastard child of the Fruity Oaty Bar and the Head-On commercials. I may have to send River Tam after the earworm.
