I’m not exactly sure why you would go about digitally remastering this “Don’t Copy That Floppy!” anti-piracy video from 1991, but someone did, and I thank them for it.
With a song that will be stuck in your head for days, MC uh, I forget, something about copy protection, raps and dances you through all the ways that piracy will kill not only the video game industry BUT THE ENTIRE COMPUTER ERA, which as we all know, was brought crashing down by piracy ten years ago…
Oh wait, no, it’s still around, and so is piracy, yet video game companies are making insane amounts of cash.
It’s funny that in a lot of ways, piracy was easier back in 1991, where all you had to do was literally, “copy that floppy.” Today, for the PC you either have to download torrents, keygens and cracks, or for consoles, you have to get a mod chip and burn downloaded games onto discs. This is all so much work that even I don’t bother with it.
I wish there was some way to just make this guy my screensaver. If the 1990s could be summed up in one video, it might be a tie between this one and the Fresh Prince of Bel Air intro.
