Subject: Fraud: Busted!

Written By: SteveCav on 09/05/06 at 10:51 pm

After a comment from Mako today, I did a little googling.

Case 1
Exhibit A: Yoda "Hey Ya" parody by Spoof-Man (31st Aug 2006).
Exhibit B: Yoda "Hey Ya" parody by Branden Boetticher (2004).

Case 2
Exhibit A: The very Model of a Modern Diplomatic Droid by Spoof-Man- Today, after 'being given help by Jay-Z'
Other Exhibits: Take your pick.

many more, google for them.

Case 3:
Exhibit A: "My Cubicle" (video version) by Spoof-Man
Exhibit B: YouTube "My Cubicle" Video. Attributed to many people across the net, including Matt Wall and the comedy show Morning Sidekick.

One would almost be tempted to think that Spoof-Man is just ignorant of the fact that you post your OWN parodies, until you notice that he claims how hard/fun they were to write (he can't even spell the word).

A talentless moron who attempts to take credit for the talent and hard work of other people.

Wow...

I guess I can't wrap my mind around how submitting other people's work as my own would be fulfilling AT ALL. 

I could go around telling everyone that that really WAS me in The Lord of the Rings...but I wouldn't take any pleasure from anyone who told me how much they loved the films.
