The Internet is for Porn
January 14, 2006 1:16 PM   Subscribe

The Internet Is For Porn is a song from the Broadway comedy Avenue Q (an adult version of Sesame Street) that I found myself humming for quite a while after watching this homemade machinima video using World of Warcraft characters. (warning first link goes to a Google Video with audio).

Anyone have a lead to an mp3 version? The song is good, but the WW3 characters don't do it for me.

Although the part at 2:42 is pretty funny.

I loved Avenue Q, and this video was hilarious!

Thanks.

**Pauses porn, and furious masturbation to watch video. Goes back to porn**

I first heard this on the ever horrid ytmnd.com. A source viewing reveals an mp3 version. But since it's a dynamicly generated embed, you'll have to deal with their version and their patented age verification system and find the mp3 uri yourself. Should be at the very end.

I prefer the horribly animated Flash version.

its ok I guess- think it would be funnier in the show (an adult version of sesame street sounds great!) but in isolation...meh.

Seemed a lot like the fortune cookie fortune + "in bed" = comedy gold formula.

Anthill, if you have a BitTorrent client or a p2p program (and are willing to use it, heh) it's there on the internet along with porn. Or you could buy it from iTunes .

The male Tauren dance totally makes it.

Thanks for your interest in Google Video.

Currently, the playback feature of Google Video isn't available in your country.

We hope to make this feature available more widely in the future, and we really appreciate your patience.

There's a clip from the actual stage version on their website.

I'm having serious trouble exorcising this earworm, myself.

Yeah, Avenue Q is awesome. Go see it!

Stav - you post that google video error message every time there's a google video link.

We get it.


Google video hasn't gotten to your neck of the woods yet.

We know it, and you know it.


Enough already.

That goddamn earworm has plagued me around the clock for several days now.

I wish the show wasn't $50 for the cheap seats.

Soo..."C" doesn't stand for cookie then?

Good enough for me.

My favorite Warcraft-related video [YouTubian]

And for those of you who can't access Google Video, this YouTubian version of "The Internet is For Porn" may be the ticket.

Disclaimer: I am a user of the YouTube website. :-P South Park episodes, anyone?

stenseng: I didn't know it. And if one wants to participate in a conversation but cannot because of some annoying, arbitrary restriction as not being in the right country for Google Video (basically, "you can't see this because we say you can't"), then stavros' comment is really all you can say.

And if one wants to participate in a conversation but cannot . . .

Actually I thought the chicken was already helped through this problem, anyway:
Stav: . . . Currently, the playback feature of Google Video isn't available in your country.

Cup: . . . Have you tried the Google Proxy?

Stav: That is beautifully, ironically clever. Thank you, cup.

the having-sex-with-cows bit at the end is actually making fun of the Tauren race in World of Warcraft, who do look sort of like a cow-human hybrid.

I really need to play that game less ;) it's fun

Um, I think the word you're searching for is "Minotaur".

...and when you say the reference is to World of Warcraft, what you're really saying is 'I live under a rock and have never read a book in my life.'

Wow. All these haters. My top 5 list of favorite things for 01/15/2006.

1. The WoW Machima of the Avenue Q song 'Internet is for Porn'
2. YTMND.com. If you don't like it, you really suck. <3
3. Metafilter.
4. Amy's Mushroom + Olive Pizza
5. Um.. there is no 5.

And the YouTube link is from the Pure Pwnage series of videos, most are not that wonderful but then they have gems like that.

Damn, I'm surprised it took this long for this to come up here... I would have posted it last year if I'd realised. Oh well *shrug*
