No, really, that's the title. It's "on topic!"

Back in Nov 1997 someone did a similar parody, but used the original soundtrack and just changed the video.

I have been searching for years for a copy but no luck, all I have is an email and a URL that the wayback machine doesn't have archived.

And for context, in 1997 most people were accessing the web with dial-up modems.

People -- this is worth the 6MB download. Hilarious!

6MB? That would take a few minutes on my Performa 475.

I'm not sure if this is it, but I found this: [www.montagar.com] (use option-click to download the link target, it wouldn't play properly within the browser)

If my math is correct, these are the approximate download times for 6MB at various baud rates.

53,000 - 906 seconds (about 15 minutes)
33,600 - 1,429 seconds (about 24 minutes)
28,800 - 1,667 seconds (about 28 minutes)
14,400 - 3,333 seconds (about 56 minutes)
9,600 - 5,000 seconds (about 83 minutes)

There's good people on both sides.

LOL!






I am that Masked Man.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

From the very first time I saw it, I hated, hated, hated hearing Richard Dreyfuss' mealy-mouth reading.

I've only just tolerated his speaking voice, and wished it had been released with Jobs doing the narration.
