NY Times on “Crank That (Soulja Boy)” Mash-up YouTube Videos

by on September 24, 2007

The New York Times covers the growing phenomenon of mash-up videos (free registration required), where individuals take clips from animated TV shows and movies and turn them into music videos. The Times notes a growing number of mash-ups of “Crank That (Soulja Boy)” by the rap artist Soulja Boy, including one that uses Disney’s Winnie the Pooh movies to turn the residents of the Hundred Acre Wood into rappers, and another that does the same to Nickelodeon’s SpongeBob SquarePants. The Pooh remix gets special attention because it seems that Disney has not yet taken any action to pull the video, even though it has been very protective of its intellectual property in the past.
