Web Video Sucker

You might remember way back in 1997 or so when a band called Prodigy had a hit song, "Smack My Bitch Up," and a video, which was banned from MTV in America and caused a controversy.

You don't remember? Well, doesn't that tell you how worthless pop culture is.

I wouldn't have remembered either, except my pirated MP3 wanderings had me remembering the song -- which I thought was fun in a techno kind of way -- and I found the video, which was helpfully labeled as Banned. (Recall my Banned Britney experience -- I'm just a sucker.)

So now I've finally seen the banned video, which is entirely different from the one I saw on MTV back in the day. And it's really neat, because it's like a little mini-Twilight Zone episode. With techno and pornography.
