Viral Video Attempt May Get Singer 20 Years in Jail
Next time you're thinking about creating a viral video for YouTube, avoid trying anything that resembles this. One singer performed child-themed music for a classroom of first graders, filmed it, and did some creative edits. In the version he posted to YouTube, the child-themed song was replaced with sexually explicit lyrics but still kept the footage of the children jiving along to his pop melodies. Well, given that the singer created child sexually abusive material and published it online, he now faces a 20-year felony. The video has since been removed from YouTube, but below you can find a news report.
