The Bee Gees and Pink Floyd: Together at last

Oh. My. God. You have to drop everything you're doing and watch this right now.

You wouldn't think that a mashup of "Stayin' Alive" and "Another Brick in the Wall Part 2" was possible, would you. Sick and twisted and brilliant.

I wonder if Wax Audio obtained permission from the artists to do this thing. If not, I really hope lawyers don't intervene. I don't want to live in a world where this doesn't count as fair use.

Hat tip: @Larry Denneau.

OMFG. This is horribly, horribly wrong while at the same time brilliant. I only wonder what medication they were on to produce this.

You are crazy if you think this is fair use. The entire Pink Floyd song (as well as a lot of the video) was used, and most if not all of the Bee Gees music was used as well.

My advice: if you love this that much, record it permanently now, because the lawyers are going to strike soon, and this will be gone. And my guess is that the lawyers will have to strike, because if they don't, Pink Floyd and the Bee Gees might both lose control of their material.
