<sarcasm> Well that’s it – I’m never going to illegally copy anything ever again. Seriously – the Software & Information Industry Association has finally made me see the error of my ways with this masterpiece of a video. </sarcasm>

Why did they mention Doom? The kids this is aimed at were babies when it came out. As for the dancing Klingon… I despair. I’m off to download The Pirate Bay and set up my own Bit Torrent service out of spite.

In case you’ve never seen the original, here it is.
