This video set to Billy Joel’s We Didn’t Start the Fire is a hilarious satire of the Silicon Valley and the current web 2.0 bubble.
The video was taken down from most video sites because Lane Hartwell, the photographer who took one of the pictures that was included in the video, complained that she wasn’t paid for her work. So all US based video sharing websites removed this seminal video, but French based dailymotion.com left it up. Dailymotion rarely removes videos, and they are a good site to checkout if you’re looking for a TV show that is no longer on YouTube.com.
Kudos to Richterscale.com for making this fantastic video parody. Companies mentioned in the video are Google, Facebook, Myspace, bebo, wikiyou, mahalo, digg, youtube, meebo and google. Bloggers mentioned are Michael Arrington, fake Steve Jobs, Federated Media, Om Malik, Valley Wag, Robert Scoble, Justin.tv, I can haz cheezburger, & MillonDollarHomepage. Tangential mentions go to Larry Page and Sergy Brin google jet, Larry Ellison mammoth sailing yacht, MiniMe, Miss Teen USA South Carolina. See all the sites that pay homage to the Web 2.0 Bubble Video with the Billy Joel soundtrack.
For those of you who are trying to post the Here Comes Another Bubble video on your site, this is the embed code you can use from DailyMotion: http://www.dailymotion.com/swf/1bN9iSkeK0japq9Pf
