The link to the Natalie Portman gangsta rap that I posted yesterday is now invalid. The message reads: This video has been removed due to copyright infringement.
Stupid NBC. “Lazy Sunday” (aka “Chronicles of Narnia rap”) was a massive viral video, and responsible for a huge increase in interest and viewers for Saturday Night Live….but of course, NBC was pissed because they couldn’t control the content. So, it looks as though they were a lot more aggressive with the Cease & Desists this time out.
Dumb bastards….corporate lawyers obviously don’t understand that the spread of that video was the best advertisement they could ever want.
EDIT: The clip is now exclusively hosted at the NBC website, with the following message:
“Now, instead of searching the web for “borrowed” NBC highlights, you can go to the source! We’ve taken your viral favorites and gathered them into one convenient location.”
Smell the CorporateSpeak, people. Mmmmm. Smells like…..desperation.
