Don't Copy that Floppy 2

In case you don't remember the anti-piracy video "Don't Copy that Floppy" from 1992, now you can watch the hilarious new update above, complete with an ode to itself at the beginning. I can't figure this new one out. It seems to take itself somewhat seriously, despite some of the goofiness and cheesiness. But then there's the Klingons. And what's with the high-pitched "convicted felon" at the end - are they pulling my leg here or what?

I'm having a hard time believing the sincerity of the anti-piracy efforts of the respective industries. Especially, w.r.t. this tripe.

This is a wonderful example of what happens when soulless businessmen sit around and brainstorm on how to "reach kids" and couch their soulless message in a "hip" way that "the kids" will "dig."

That said, trying to sell things that you're pirating is probably not a good idea.
