» Google and piracy (IT Crowd)

A second season of the cult TV series The IT Crowd is currently running on British TV Channel 4. If you don't happen to live on British Isles you have to help yourself (*cough*) to find the recent episodes. I heartily recommend watching it and to encourage you, here are two excerpts, which simply rock.

What happens if you type “google” into Google? Well, you can break the Internet ;-)

The other movie is a parody of antipiracy campaign pushed forward by organisations like MPAA or RIAA (BTW, they use unethical methods of fighting so called piracy themselves).

Here is a transcript of the videos:

— I don't think that's true.
— With all due respect John, I'm head of IT and I have it on good authority. If you type “google” into Google, you can break the Internet, so please no one try it. Even for a joke. It's not a laughing matter, you can break the Internet.

The second clip:

You wouldn't steal a handbag.
You wouldn't steal a car.
You wouldn't steal a baby.
You wouldn't shoot a policeman and then steal his helmet.
You wouldn't go to the toilet in his helmet.
And then send it to the policeman's grieving widow.
And then steal it again!
Downloading films is stealing. If you do it, you will face the consequences!
