In the anti-SOPA/PIPA furor from last week, someone stepped out to become a big star. That person is YouTube user LaughPong, who produced the best song parody since Weird Al’s last song parody, except this one was for a good cause. It was called “The Day the LOLcats Died,” and it’s an anti-SOPA rendition of Don McLean’s “American Pie.” Let’s cue it up, shall we?
The song is great, and while it’s no longer right on the cusp, the SOPA/PIPA movement is still alive and still active, and if you think you’ve seen this bill for the last time, think again. It will be back in some different form; don’t you worry about that. The media cartels are scared, and since they don’t know how to bring their business back, they’re going to lash out in a public manner. Since they own so many Congressmembers, it’ll be in law form. SOPA and PIPA will be back, eventually. Just wait.Technorati Tags: american pie, don mclean, funny songs, funny videos, laughpong, pipa, protest song, song parodies, sopa, the day the lolcats died
