All this news about how Philadelphia headquartered retailer Urban Outfitters ripped off and then recalled a necklace from independent jewelry designer Stevie Koerner (here) has been great for bloggers. The regurgitated story (which itself seems sort of like plagiarism) has been a useful tool for increasing all these idiot’s Google search rankings. So I’m hopping on the internet plagiarism whistleblower bandwagon – except I’m doing it better. I’m going to pack this post so full of popular search terms that Google’s servers melt.
While everyone was either seeing Hangover II, Thor, X-Men: First Class, or looking at nude pictures of Blake Lively, (yes; nude pictures of Blake Lively – is Leonardo DiCaprio mad????) I stumbled upon this piece of blatant plagiarism from Malibu Rum’s “Boom Boom Radio campaign” (first in 2010; re-aired in 2011):
live nude sex cams
Which is clearly a sexed up “Rhianna esque” (minus the nude cell phone pics) rip off of the Flight of the Conchords skit “She’s so Hot- Boom” (aired in 2007):
Snooki in nude car crash
Which is clearly a rip off of this (aired in September, 2005):
Sarah Palin nude bus tour
Which is clearly a rip off of Brian Collin’s catchphrase “Boom goes the dynamite” (aired in March, 2005).

Blake Lively’s famous character Serena van der Woodsen on the CW hit Gossip Girl could not have cooked up a more devious coup (or even as herself, Blake Lively, nude on the internet – I mean, are they real or not?). So I’m asking that everyone join my boycott of Malibu Rum for the summer; and to repost this everywhere. Other blogs, graffiti, T-shirts, whatever it takes. I want this to be bigger than Dirk Nowitzki tearing a tendon in his non-shooting hand against the Miami Heat and Lebron James, Dwayne Wade, and Chris Bosch in game 1 of the NBA finals.
The world needs to know about Malibu Rum ripping off independent comedians who rip off internet memes. Right after a short moment of silence for an upgrade in the status of singer Sean Kingston.
