"Internet Celebrities, Let's Sing It Proud!"

|

If Net Neutrality (defined for now as the bill moving through Congress) wasn't in trouble already, I think this just killed it. It's the musical stylings of three—let's admit it—wackjobs who got famous over the internet and want to make sure future generations can do goofy things to get their fifteen minutes, too. Turn the volume down. Or way up!

  1. I think you just got the pipes all dirty with that video, David.

  2. That dancing cakeboy was just weird.

  3. Somehow there was more authenticity in that crappy video than hundreds of hours of programmed TV.

    I know, I know, Reason is against Net Neutrality because it thinks the net’s infrastructure was built by the sweat of AT&T’s unregulated, competitive brow. Those of us who work with regulated utilities know how it doesn’t quite work to deregulate at the drop of a hat.

  4. Usually you have to wait a couple decades to recognize something as a kitschy artifact of its time. Seeing it in something made in the last week … it’s giving me vertigo.

  5. It burnssss! It burns our eyessssss!!!

  6. We have been having a great news week out in the sarcasticverse. I count at least 3 or 4 South Park premises since Thursday alone.

  7. Oh, that is so…wrong.

    I dropped one of my eyeballs on the floor after clawing them out of my head. Now I have to grope my way to the sink to rinse it off.

  8. If ever there was an argument for censorship of the interent, the video was it. Won’t someone think of the children?

  9. All it needed was Algore singing, “Ah am the internets, y’all are the internets, We are the, Ah invented the internets.”

  10. I can’t believe I paused my iTunes TMBG playlist to watch that. Augh!

  11. i thought it was great…love a chance to see the gallery of sweaters lady dancing and singing…

  12. OMG ONOZ!!!LOL!!1!!1

  13. OH, I remember: it’s Net Santorum, yeah, that’s it.

    I have a question. By associating a truly filthy, disgusting Senator with that “frothy mixture”, how does that help homosexual men be more accepted by society? I find Rick Santorum to be disgusting scum that would have been better had he been aborted in the first trimester. Am I also to feel that people producing “santorum” are equally as vile?

  14. I think, if the two-tiered internet comes to pass, the market will speak. And carry a big stick.

    If net neutrality passes, well, life will, somehow, go on. Just like it is now.

  15. My one….de-siiire

  16. My God… Is it just me or does that woman look like Mary Jo Pell (aka Peal Forrester) from the later seasons of MST3K?

  17. Edit: (aka Pearl Forrester)

  18. Because it is the gubm’nt telling private business who to sell to and how much to charge. DUH

    Ah, yes, I forgot how private the telcos in the US have been all these years. No monopolies, no subsidies, no lobby, none of that!

    Thanks for reminding me how perfectly competitive they’ve been.

  19. If we were serious about promoting true free market competitveness in telecommunications we would be fighting to crack the local telco/local cableco duopoly in the “last mile” of wire that connects to homes and businesses. Maybe better wireless tech will do that, but the FCC issues licenses for that “scarce” resource. When you can choose between competing cable providers, competing DSL companies, the dish, wireless connection or even microwave, then the firms demanding an extra toll to use “their network” won’t have much bargaining power.

    oh goody another public employee who is a libertarian in all things exept where you get your money…may i introduce you to jennefer and thourou

  21. Joshua Corning:

    Are Thoreau and Jennifer government employees or otherwise financed by the taxpayers?

  22. If it wouldn’t hurt me so much, I’d be happy for telcos to recreate the wonderful days of Prodigy. Remember them? They were the last big holdout of the online service providers, refusing to provide access to the wider internet. They were convinced if they provided the right mix of services and content, people would stay right in their box and pay them extra for their premium services. The idea that somebody else could make money over something they controlled–even if they got money from the person already just for the joy of being online–was too much for them.

    Yeah, the market spoke but it took a while. It was nearly completely unregulated, too. The telcos are not even close to unregulated and will throw up a lot of legal barriers to any company wanting to break their system.

    Until they lose the last of their regulatory protections, I don’t support them being able to invent a crisis in order to avoid passing their operating costs on to their own customers for the service they provide.

  23. I finally played the video through my el-cheapo dialup pipe. Peter Pan and Tron guy were familiar, those puppets (from the Quiznos commercials?), and that awful CGI baby from Ally McBeal. I think it could have used the dancing hamsters, and maybe those football-playing badgers who “played for England.”

    jf,
    Straight couples also produce that frothy mixture as well. Not to mention that calling someone a “piece of shit” does not insult those that create pieces of shit.

  25. “oh goody another public employee who is a libertarian in all things exept where you get your money…may i introduce you to jennefer and thourou”

    Hey Joshua Corning, thanks for chiming in with your stupid, ignorant and highly insulting comments. Oh yeah, completely incorrect as well. First, it shouldn’t matter where I work as long as my posts make logical sense. Your post is an ad hominem without any specific hominem. It’s like a logical flaw with its own intelligence issues!! Second, I fight reglulation in my job and make plenty doing it. Meanwhile, I was unaware that there is an official libertarian stand regarding the highly complex, yet well-defined field of “where you get your money.” Third, you could attack the post I made? There are opposing arguments, you know. They aren’t particularly strong, but I gather neither is your capacity for rhetoric.

    That said, I barely missed Jennifer at the Revival outing. Love to meet her, even if I have my corporate uniform on.

  26. I’m disappointed. The video did not feature the dancing banana. You know, that one: “I like to move it move it”. And the one where he’s riding the donkey. “Let me ride that donkey donkey”. Heh heh.

  27. Somehow there was more authenticity in that crappy video than hundreds of hours of programmed TV.

    I know, I know, Reason is against Net Neutrality because it thinks the net’s infrastructure was built by the sweat of AT&T’s unregulated, competitive brow. Those of us who work with regulated utilities know how it doesn’t quite work to deregulate at the drop of a hat.

    Writing now In 2010 I don’t need a large capacity for rhetoric. History has proven you wrong.

  28. Internet so that our life has changed, so that faster information transfer.
