Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Was tased for his views, now it's up on YouTube
Ask the hard questions - they don't know what do
Lots of people talking, most search for a quote
Voice from a student saying "Don't Tase Me, Bro!"

His words were subdued: pulled the plug on his mic *
And the whole scene's crazy as the thought police strike **
He may be crazy, but not I-rain-ee-in ***
Cops are tazer happy - they did it again

What you say can travel far - but in the age of today
Never talk of "blow jobs" - or they'll take away
'least you had your moment, in that aud-i-tor-i-um
Then you went crazy - that seemed, kinda, dumb!

Arrgh!

Arrgh!

[taser and screams here: vocal noodling by Robert Faceplant,
electric taser guitar by Gimmy Tase]

(so you) were tased for your views, now it's up on YouTube
Ask the hard questions - on the blogs and the news
Lots of people talking, but all search for a quote
Voice from a student screaming, please, "Don't Tase Me, Bro!"

AHHHHHHH!!!! AHHHHHHH!!!!!
copyright 2007+ Jack "Red Ant" Fletcher

*It was a wireless microphone: "pull the plug" here means cut him off.

**verb tense disagreement here: call it unpoetic license on my part

***Last year UCLA campus insecurity repeatedly tased an Iranian student in a library, which also wound up on YouTube.

A shockingly clever parody about CURRENT events! 555 volts!
I'm working on "Don't Tase Me, Bro" as a parody of "Y.M.C.A." by The Voltage, er, I mean, Village People.

If you check the message board thread on this work, you'll see that big Red wrote this in less than an hour. A supreme achievement to say the least.

Yikes! Is it just me or did Red Ant's recording give anybody else the creeps! That freaking spooked the Hell out of me, that's all I'm saying.
McKludge - September 21, 2007 - Report this comment
Wouldn't be surprised to see a mashup of the Don't Tase Me Bro dude and the Leave Britney Alone dude inthe next few days. God Save the Internet! Oh yeah, 555

Well. . . .I of course gave my opinion last night via phone, but here's a more public congrats. . .don't forget to submit the recording to the recording section too (now that I am the editor for it I feel like I should help direct people to it:))

Watt verb-tense disagreement? High-voltage and -votage work!

You guys took all the good puns!!! Oh well...555
Tommy Turtle - September 21, 2007 - Report this comment
All the good puns gone? Allow me to amp it up a bit... Ohm, my Gawd.... Like OJ, this guy got 'the Juice'... Excellent use of very poetic license, btw... 555.

I submitted one on this topic professionally to a radio chain, so can't publish here unless they don't take it. Would be hard to top this, though. You are really wired!

Very clever and timely stuff, Red Ant. Deserves 2 sets of 5s - one for the lyrics and one for the humorous way you worked the questioner's words and screams into your recording.

clever writing jack - and sharp work - there must be something addictive about pulling that taser trigger - 555

Thanks Johnny D, Aggy, Matthias, McKludge, Alvin, Jack, Dave, John B, Syncronos, TT, John J and Stu!

JD: With some 'reluctance', I commend your puns. I look foward to your work - a new in'flux' of DTMB parodies would make me ec'static'.

Aggy: Thanks for noticing the thread. I, too, am "stunned" I did it so fast, as well as the recording.

Matthias: Led Zep boosted to 50kV is kinda freaky.

McKludge: I forgot about that guy: the local radio station actually held a contest to see who could most closely impersonate him.

John Barry: If you didn't see it, then it didn't happen... bit I took the path of least resistance and fudged that line a bit.

Dave: Done, and thanks for the reminder.

Syncronos: You could have quoted Beavis from the episode where he screams "Taser! Use the taser!". =)

Tommy Transformer: I count 5 puns in your comment.... seems I generated quite a field of excitement in your comment!I gauss I had a sixth sense when writing that ** footnote, knowing somehow you were going to read this!

John Jenkins: Thanks for checking out the recording: not my best vocally, but collecting and editing in all the sound effects took quite a bit of time. Feel free to vote those extra 5s at a later time, lol.

Stu: I was kinda disgusted the first time I saw that video (and still am - see the messageboard thread), but decided that those pathetic and overly dramatic screams at the end of the video clip were too wussy not to mock (and play) incessantly.

Great Job! I always thought those Taser guns were supposed to be 'non lethal' but I suppose they are less harmful than bog-standard lead bulletts. 555

Now, vy didn't Herr Turtle think of that pun? Sehr gut, Herr Ant. -- tt.
Tommy Turtle - September 22, 2007 - Report this comment
Herr Gauss, I am duly ashamed at missing that pun in my comment posted on Faraday -- I mean, Friday. Would I redeem myself if I were to rephrase Red Ant's pun and sum up the entire taser situation thusly?: "Resistance is futile."
watcher - September 23, 2007 - Report this comment
He wanted to be taped and show off. He resisted the cops and said he was not resisting. Therefore, based on his logic, the cops did not tazer him
TT - September 23, 2007 - Report this comment
Just noticed that you received no negative reviews or even neutral ones -- all were positive. This is anode that will be sung widely. That aggressive Copper topped the list, but it was sure an energizer for the recipient. Hope he likes jail and can enduracell. Is he facing charges of battery?
Red Ant - September 26, 2007 - Report this comment
Thanks Jason, Gauss, TT and watcher.

watcher: Agree, agree, and based on his screams he got tased at least 200 times.

Tommy Turtle: Your capacitance for puns shows no limits: I'd be Liden' to you if I said I wasn't impressed. Looks like I did get struck by lightning once and got brought back down to earth. At least I didn't come in direct contact with any snide remarcs.

As for Amp-drew, he got tested for galvanic skin response after he was rectal-fried: the results were income-joules-ive. (I'm reaching here...)
