We Didn’t Start the Flame War

I’m in a rush, so I’ll keep it brief.


The song and video were made by collegehumor.com and I first saw it when I stumbled upon the blog What Tian Has Learned…. It is one of many parodies of “We Didn’t Start the Fire” by Billy Joel; another infamous parody being “Pet Names for Genitalia” (which I actually knew about before the original).

As for the video, the drunk college girls pic in the beginning is this one (you horny bastards…). The ihatemindy.com site exists, the ihatecindy.com site does not. The pic that is referred to as photoshoped is this one. The pic that is “stolen from xkcd” is this one, which in itself is based on an Internet meme with X-Zibit. The alien ASCII art thingy is Admiral Ackbar (thank you Faethin <3) and the bear is Pedobear, one of 4chan’s mascots. I couldn’t find the kitty video. The Rick Roll video URL is obviously fake as YouTube uses an = between the v and the video ID, not a +. The proper link is therefore http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oHg5SJYRHA0 and the two videos are obviously not the same, but it was a very nice touch.
