Oblique Notes: South Park Intercon Basel Action Network Reference

PS, I did not link the video to the South Park - Russell Crowe episode, in part because video slows readers in some of the blog's subscription markets.  Also I'm not sure of SP "fair use" policy, they offer streaming of complete episodes online but not on youtube.

But some people don't know the episode, so below the fold there's a link to the episode and a link to the Russell Crowe song "Fighting Round the World".  Also, some people aren't aware of the Intercon CEO's video, which partly inspired the South Park reference (and any reference to "defamation lawsuit", South Park Studios, and a Hollywood star, gets points in my Ingenthron scorebook).

Read the weekend blog, the defense of Intercon. It's important.  BAN is the one "fighting 'round the world", picking on people in exotic locales.  Brundage is the guy who finally says "might as well be me".

Clip, episode link, lyrics, and Intercon CEO kung fu videos below.

Here's a link to the whole episode on South Park online.

Here are the lyrics.

Born in New Zealand in sixty-four
A hot-headed actor named Russell Crowe
He loves to act but he loves one thing more
Fightin' Round The World

He fights his directors and he fights his fans
It's a problem no one understands
If there's two things he loves it's fighting and
Fightin' Round The World

Makin' movies, makin' music and
Fight-in' Round The World!
Russell Crowe!


Tugger's whistle's blowin
Means we must be goin
No more Russell Crowein' for you.

But now don't you start to whine
I'll see ya again next time
Cos there's plenty a-more a-fightin' left to do.
Makin' movies, makin' songs
An' fightin' round the world
