A Dear Little Ditty For The Poor Widdle RIAA

Ah, the RIAA. Here at TMO, we just love following the valiant fight to rid the world of those dastardly music pirates, their particular enthusiasm for making it as hard as possible for legitimate users to consume their music, and their little habit of ignoring all the obvious benefits that file sharing has introduced to the industry. The latest episode of this soapy little saga has them venturing into the networks themselves, seeking out music pirates in the hope of suing the pants off as many people as they can.

The only thing missing in this drama is a music video with seven or eight high-profile musicians and a tear-jerking, chest-swelling little tune protesting the Injustice Of It All. Since the industryis failed to deliver this essential ingredient, Camp Chaos stepped into the fray with a satirical cartoon music video, "Sue All the World." Fake versions of Sheryl Crow, Eminem, James Hetfield, Sir Elton John and more get together to bring you a truly insightful look into why the industry feels that it has to behave this way, and all sung more or less to the tune of We Are the World.

Will the real Slim Shady please shut up, please shut up, please shut up...

Please note that this animation is definitely neither work-safe nor family-safe due to fairly hefty use of profanities, walking turds, and an extremely good rendition of Sheryl Crowis voice. Plug the headphones in, wait till youire home, or make sure you have forgiving work mates. Itis a very well-done piece of satire, and itis very entertaining.
