I appreciate the cumbersome nature of obtaining music rights for use in filmmaking—best to avoid using copyrighted music in general... but it's fucking YouTube!

In this situation, I don't have to do anything, but YouTube has gotten really uncool about shit like this. I guess they're working it so that eventually it'll be the exclusive domain of nut-shots and bullshit video confessionals.

This'll probably get pulled eventually, but enjoy it while it lasts:
