Um... why did you link to a crappy ABC News article on it instead of linking straight to the video?

Minus one star for that and seeing a major news network refer to a whole 25k views as 'going viral.'
erratic
because the crappy abc news story about the parody IS the video. Much more evil than the music video alone.

Did you miss this bit at the bottom?

"Click here to check out the video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-WduxkDRo0A"

did I miss the video that I mentioned above? hmmm, let me think...

Let me break it down for you:

1. This is POETV. Links generally go to VIDEOS, not NEWS COPY with videos embedded in them.

2. Wow, there IS a video in that big ol' wall of text, and it's the size of a postage stamp! But down at the bottom of that page is what you SHOULD have linked do, the YOUTUBE URL.

3. If it still doesn't make sense to you, I can only assume you're enjoying the lovely weather in Tampa for the GOP convention.

I was also wondering why there wasn't just a direct link to the parody. The news story is fine for context, but one thing I've learned about POETV is that context is generally not a necessity.

*sigh* in the many years I've been coming here, it's been standard practice to submit sites if the video on those sites isn't embedable. it's the news video that I'm posting. If you like the original parody, that's cool, post that yourself.

It's not that big a deal. Now that POE has no forums, I think we should ease up on giving a shit about this sort of thing.

Yeah, we want to know what the weather was like in Washington DC two weeks ago. We don't need to wade through four minutes of some weatherman making an ass of himself on live television.

God dammit you people are stupid.

It's linked to the wrong video now. The goddamn parody isn't the fucking video, dumbass. It provides context to how stupid this news segment was but it is not important context. We can tell how shitty the video is from the brief clip of it they play.
erratic
thank you. Here's the link to the actual video that I submitted before Kleenex hijacked my submission
