The video was called something like: Yngwie - you're amazing new God. Someone overdubbed some really spastic guitar playing and Yngwie spoke like Ah-nold. It was a riot. This is what you get now when you try to play it on You Tube:

I guess Yngwie/God found this blasphemy and his minions intervened

Edit: Found it (not on You Tube): http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=b1a_1178171021

I didnt find it funny, perhaps if the guitar playing was better then Malmsteen it would have been funnier, but thats quite a lot to ask for.

I have to agree with all artists, they must protect their intellectual property.

If the person responsible dressed up and imitated YJM then it would have been okay, but using Y's property, the video, is not ethical.

Satire and parody are protected fair uses. They don't have to be funny.

Weird Al gets permission first because he is a classy guy, but permission is not required.

Well I can agree that in using parody, even extensive use of original material must be employed in order to make the connection to the original.

Dont have to be funny? Then it's not parody by definition. What's its purpose? Criticism?

If you are commenting upon or critiquing a copyrighted work, fair use principles allow you to reproduce some of the work to achieve your purposes.

The rationale of this rule is that someone benifits from your review, which is enhanced by including some of the copyrighted material.

How does one benefit from this video?

I am just saying that this instance of using copyrighted work is theft. I am not suprised it has been removed.


Weird Al buys permisson because the people he parodies benifit financially from having more exposure. I wouldnt be suprised if in fact he pays to use the material.

Whatever. I still like it. Not a bad parody at all.

That link doesn't work as it has your session ID in it. Was there a note there or something?

"sure seem to come close to poor taste"
You might think so, but that's way too subjective an opinion....

You are intitled to your opinion but thats something people with poor taste say.

First the intellectual work of time, and study as well as inspiration and devotion must be factors in calaculating the value of a work. Society shows this to be true.

And that's something someone high on the smell of their own "smug"* would say...

Thanks for proving that...

imagine, kobe beeflofu and ramen noodles:mad: in the same sentence

....maybe it was the governator's people that pulled the fury?????

fwiw, I remember seeing some unknown band on a new show on ABC that was supposed to be the new Don Kirschner's Rock Concert concept featuring the former singer from UFO.......and there' this crazy kid throwing his strat in the air and playing the most insane guitar. The band was Alcatrazz and the guitarist was Yngwie, Yngwie J. to avoid confusion. Yngwie's not for everyone but....he can play. I like parodies, but the vid in question was pretty lame (very one dimensional humour).

Weird Al is sooooooo connected like you wouldn't believe......try to get the rights to do a parody or ask someone who's in the know. I like Twisted Tunes better (2 DJ's from Seattle).....but I think they got into legal hell????

Sad but true. Sorry if I have offended you.

I was not suggesting that YOU had poor taste but merely commenting on the use of the cliche'.

You haven't offended me in the least.... I don't take things written on the internet to heart.
