Occupy Modern Love

new york times

Dozens of protesters gathered outside The New York Times building on Eighth Avenue last night to protest the no-comment policy of the newspaper’s weekly Modern Love column.

“The Times is suppressing free speech,” said Jax123, who, like many of the protesters, prefers to be called by his screen name. “And since we aren’t allowed to express ourselves in Modern Love, we’re here to make ourselves heard tonight.”

“It’s a monstrous policy,” said Titsrkul from Staten Island, who was holding a placard that read, ‘Stop Internet Abuse.

So he recreated all of Britney’s trademark writhing and neck-snapping dance moves, showed a little midriff, and pasted his performance right over the top of the video. The result is strangely compelling, and way more erotic than the original. Sorry, Brit. [YouTube]

In this video, we see not only a spot-on impression of every Actually Guy I’ve ever met, but also a glimpse into his lonely life. Apparently it’s tough being right all the time. [Neatorama]
