A scientist definitively rebuts the Insane Clown Posse:
Is there a video there, or a picture? All I get is a big black square.
I don’t get it.
It may help to watch the ICP song it’s parodying.
Well, that’s a dumb, dumb song. But if those guys were attempting to make fun of ICP and correct their understanding of natural philosophy, they’re as overly sensitive and literal as Simcha Fisher’s commenters.
I think you’re sort of reading too much into this. The people who made it weren’t actually trying to make any sort of point at all (if they had been trying to make a point about science, they’d have failed miserably, inasmuch as they completely mangled the explanation of magnetism) — it was made by LoadingReadyRun, a sketch comedy team, and it’s no more serious than the same team’s “Grilled Cheese”. (For that matter, I don’t think ICP was seriously trying to make a point either.)
Hmm. There are a lot of sketch teams on the internet that are not really ready for prime time.
