Pretty graphic (in a hilarious way) depiction of the RIAA busting some music downloaders.

The RIAA's newly forged alliance with Mordor and Nazi Germany looks to put an end to file sharing once and for all.

It's a clip from American Werewolf in London, with new captions.

Big whoop.

Oddly, the musical career of actor David Naughton (whose throat was slashed in that scene) was also mentioned this week in an Onion article about iPods. (funny stuff)

This is good, but not great. Definitely worth downloading if your bored and on broadband.

These are not the downloaders you've been looking for....

(self link) There is a 3mb divx version up on my site, as well, plus a link to Waxy's mirrors.

Was that really from American Werewolf in London? It's been ages since I saw it. That was f'n spooky. Makes you realize just how far John Carpenter has fallen from form...

As for the parody itself: *YAWN*

I wonder why John Carpenter has fallen? John Landis helmed American Werewolf in London.

I liked it a lot.

John Carpenter has indeed slowed down a bit, in my opinion (although I loved "Vampires") but John Landis hasn't made a good movie in 15 years.

'Helmed'? What, do you work for Variety now?
