Extremely funny parody of rock classic Video Killed the Radio Star. Internet Killed the Video Star is a product of the Broad Band at eStudio. The video features a beautifully animated look at the past, present and future of entertainment, both in regard to video, cinema and music.

As for the title of the song, I haven't seen MP3 audio or Internet music in some other form kill MTV or even plain old CD's yet .. and chances are both will stay with us for quite some time.

The Internet Killed the Video star video was the first in the Regurge series over at eStudio.com, and has since its publication been followed by such wonderful pieces of music as I did it all for the Pokée by Wimp Pissed Kid and I Want a Fat Babe by The Snacktreat Boys - as you can probably guess, these are parodies of songs by Limp Bizkit and The Backstreet Boys, respectively.

Visitors to the eStudio website should also take their time to enjoy the beautiful design of the site, which uses Flash animations by Macromedia. What I wouldn't give to have a homepage like that.

Fantastic song. For your viewing pleasure ( I found the repeating sample irritating as I copied this :/ ), the blurb in the intro (from the version at http://atomfilms.shockwave.com/af/content/regurge01) follows; I do feel the first paragraph belongs over at the VKtRS node really :(

(...a-ha, just seen that it's noted at August 1, 1981)

On August 1, 1981 at 12:01am, MTV aired its first music video, "Video Killed the Radio Star" by the Buggles. The debut is still remembered as the breakthrough cultural event of the early 80's, marking the beginning of the music video era. Even today, almost nineteen years later, this video and related commentaries can be found on numerous sites all over the web

Appropriately enough, "Video Killed the Radio Star" celebrated the birth of one new medium - the music video - and mourned the waning of another - radio.

On June 6, 2000, eStudio.com helped usher in another paradigm-breaking medium with a parody of the original MTV video - "Internet Killed the Video Star". Like the video it parodies, "Internet Killed" chronicles the explosive growth of a whole new medium - the Internet. This animated music parody leaves a lot of roadkill in its wake - MTV, AOL, Bill Gates and others, and is the first in a series of music parodies from eStudio that will appear on shockwave.com
