Outrageous anti-American video released on 3-month anniversary of WTC attacks

The Church of Euthanasia has released a four-minute music video titled "I Like to Watch," which explores connections between the voyeuristic news coverage of the September 11 attacks, professional sports, and pornography. The themes are woven together, and shown to be interchangeable forms of mass entertainment.
The Church of Euthanasia has released a four-minute music video titled "I Like to Watch," which explores connections between the voyeuristic news coverage of the September 11 attacks, professional sports, and pornography. The themes are woven together, and shown to be interchangeable forms of mass entertainment. The video is likely to be supressed in the near future, for several reasons:

(1) It makes savage fun of Americans in general, and the current epidemic of patriotism in particular. In the most extreme shots, a giant penis ejaculates on the Pentagon's tongue, a tongue licks the tower as it's being penetrated by the plane, and an American flag is used to wipe up sperm.

(2) Almost all of the source material is copyrighted news footage. It can certainly be argued (correctly) that the video is a statire, and therefore qualifies for a fair use exemption, but that won't necessarily stop the news media from taking legal action. On the other hand, they may be deterred somewhat by the potential for greater publicity.

I DON'T Like to Watch...YOUR VIDEO!!! 14.Dec.2001 22:02

Mr. CriTic

That video sucked and made little sense. I think your treatment of the sex and violence western dilema is haphazard at best. Add this with an almost morbid fascination with inserting your porn collection with videos of the 9-11 massacre...and I can honestly say that your analisis of the current media cartel was probably just an excuse for you to video yourself masturbating.

You're music and video montage are simplistic and elitist to the core. You seem to be saying..."the average American is at fault for the corporate/military complex because they watch too much porn/consume too much NOT the people who threw these events into motion behind the scenes".

If you were trying to "skew" the "average" american then perhaps your video shows some merit...although I'd prefer to listen to L7's song, Wargasm (about the Iraq bombings).
