Reefer Madness Redux

The RIAA, the folks that are suing the hell out of college kids who download music for free or those who may enable them, has come out with a scare video which is reminiscent of the old VD scare movies of the 1950's and 1960's. It even includes a warning about infecting ones computer with viruses as a result of promiscuous downloading. To the embarrassment of Penn State, Graham Spanier, in his role as corporate shill, makes a cameo appearance in this hilarious video which is destine to become a cult classic in the vein of Reefer Madness.
Update: Jannuary 2, 2008. Funny thing, the the above link to the scare video once took you to a Penn State RIAA URL with a streaming video. Now the link takes you to a RIAA URL with only a video preview. I guess Graham wanted to hide his performance from the public everyone was embarrassed by the thing. Not to worry, the video is on YouTube.
