  • Nothing against strippers, but I don't think they belong on shirts. Even to make a punny joke.

  • As much of a stretch as this case seems, this guy is an artist (bad or good, he is one). He set out with the intention of making a funny video. He dressed his cat up, picked the music, and then did his thing with the intention of entertaining. Years later, the machine that is the Internet decides it's hilarious.

    He then tells people 'Please! Make your own renditions. Let's have fun!" and somehow that means that it's free game for profit?

    I respect that the artist understands where this guy is coming from, but "nothing is completely original material, whether it be influenced, directly influenced or completely borrowed" is a ridiculous argument. Yes, we as artists are influenced by the world and art and ideas around us...but there is a big difference between being inspired and 'completely borrowing' something. This wasn't so much a parody as it was a mashup of 'famous' things that Threadless (and the artists) knew would sell.
