On Wednesday, NewsBusters premiered a new video from our friends at Minnesotans for Global Warming called "Two Below Honey."
Those that watched it saw and heard a clever global warming parody sung to Van Morrison's "Tupelo Honey."
The video has now been removed by YouTube with the following explanation:
This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by VAN MORRISON/EXILE PRODUCTIONS
The covers that I've been able to find do indeed denote the following: "Copyright music and lyrics reproduced by kind permission of Exile."
As such, Exile and Morrison appear to have a firm hold on all his material...but parodies?
Elmer at M4GW is going to try to get Exile's permission to resubmit his video. Stay tuned.
