    Though the web is packed full of creative people making fun and wonderful things, for every lovely new work, there’s a troll ready to add something ridiculous to try and put a downer on it all.

    Those trolls must work awfully hard to spam and bait so many people all over the world, so the fantastic Isabel Fay and Tom Hopgood of Clever Pie have found a lovely way to recognise those efforts.

    In the video “Thank You Hater!” Fay sings sweetly for us all and well known faces of film, media and the Web say thanks in one of the funniest answers to trolls that we’ve seen in a while.

    As you might expect, dealing with trolls, the language is NSFW, but for grown ups, this is a truly spectacular effort and we love it.
