Video: Imagine there’s no YouTube

posted at 5:21 pm on September 25, 2012 by Erika Johnsen

From the clever folks at ReasonTV, a succinct and artful commentary on the utter absurdity of anyone using a YouTube video as a justification for violence or an excuse to go soft on free speech. Hey, maybe if there was no YouTube, all the chaos and unrest in the Middle East would just go away?

Not bad. Not quite a classic, but not bad.

(Referring to the “Imagine” parody video.)

The best part was the pop-tart kitty flying through the sky, uncommented on.

Imagine no Liberals.

That was pretty darn good…

Piss Christ republicans for Jesus! Who knew!

Kind of sad that I recognized every single one of those clips.

Stealth Nyan Cat FTW!

Great vid, but right about now, Yoko is probably contacting her lawyers.

Would Honey Badger care?

No

I’m not a big tuber, but I support youtube and the First

But onto ot Madonna. The woman is a genius for calling Hussein what he is “a black muslim”. She did the world a huge favor HUGE

Didn’t expect the “Gangnum Style” ending, but how perfect for a “defending YouTube” piece. Just wish I was one of those brilliant billionaires who dreamed it up, YouTube that is. Not so much GS.

TXUS on September 25, 2012 at 5:55 PM

They lose ballsy points for not going with the obvious “Muslim style” at the end.

Nyan cat!

I really loved the ending, actually. I’m one of those that thinks Gangnam Style is hilarious. Also, since I love j-pop (even though I can’t understand a word of it), I think the song is pretty great, too. lol… I loved the “Hey there crazies!” line at the end with the Gangnam Style bit. LOL… Calling them like they are!

Uh-oh…they called the insane Muslim looters and ragers “crazies”…! Is the White House going to call on YouTube to ban this one too? :P

Honey Badger Randall would lose his house. Free YouTube!

leftnomore on September 25, 2012 at 7:15 PM

For a change. But the balance sheet is not even.

I want honey badger Mitt behind the podium for next week’s debate.

Because make no mistake, the rat-eared bastard isn’t going to be “asking” that YouTube consider removing videos that offend his fellow Muslims. Same would go for any medium from blog sites to the local news programs. Michelle Obama would ensure Paula Dean be jailed for her excessive use of butter. And all without the need to worry about another election.

Happy Nomad on September 25, 2012 at 7:24 PM

No, Erika, I wouldn’t care.

The awesomeness that is me doesn’t need Youtube or any of the intertubes for that matter. I’d still be awesomely awesome in all of my awesomeness.

And I don’t discriminate – I hired Russell.

Now, back to the cobras (and Democrats).
