The Circus Parade Experiment

I couldn’t find the music video for “Mr. Krinkle” by Primus on YouTube. I had no problem finding “Wynonna’s Big Brown Beaver“, “Shake Hands With Beef” and “Southbound Pachyderm“, but no “Mr. Krinkle”. So I fire up my Youtube account and start to upload my copy of the video. After the upload, I immediately get the “Rejected because of copyright”.

So I am conducting an experiment. I shrank my copy of the video down a bit, then renamed the file. I then uploaded the file with a title of “Circus Parade” and the only internet tag I have is “Primus”. This upload was not rejected by YouTube’s bots. We’ll see if some other layer of protection catches it. In the meantime, here is the ingenious music video, “Mr Krinkle” by Primus. Not many music videos are over 5 minutes long and done in one continuous take.
