I’m not sure how I missed this the first time round, maybe I should watch RudeTube more often.
Newport state of mind was pulled from YouTube because the original artists didn’t like the parody. Unfortunately, as Weird Al will tell you, parody is generally considered fair use in the USA and is also allowable under UK law, and anyway, once it’s on the internet it’s out there and not likely to be able to be removed in the long run. I was a little confused by some of the references to things like the Millennium stadium and LlanfairPG, but was kinda willing to let it slide as the accents are so nice.
However, The GLC took it upon themselves to put together Newport State of Mind (you’re not from Newport) which whilst not quite as funny, does have more accurate references to local Newport sights and actually mentions the Ryder Cup.
