    My guess are that the signature of the song are to close to the original, so it was caught by the filters the record companies have sent to Google.

    BTW I don't believe that the video has been deleted. I've had a few of the Swedish and Norwegian Fraggle Rock clips I've uploaded removed due to copyright claims from HIT, and I could still access them from my account. So I don't think the 10 million views are in danger.

    That's good to know.

    Really... an official video getting pulled by a small side company? Totally bogus.

    woot, its back! tho seemingly stuck around 10 million

    Sucks knowing how many people tried clicking on it the last few days only to see it was taken down and the potential fan loss.

    Was that Scandanavian thing a hoax group trying to cause problems?

    I don't believe it was a hoax group. EMI Scandinavia do have the rights to the Queen songs. I still believe it was the filters that Google are running on youtube that caught the song. The filters compare the music on the videos to muisc "signatures" that the record companies have required google to run on youtube. When they find a match everything happends automatic, some filters allows songs to be played in certain regions others, do not allow the publication in any region.

    That's what bugs me if it wasn't a hoax. To get an official song, they have to go through all of the proper channels, pay the royalties and make sure all the rights are cleared. It could have been a mistake and all, but all the rights were cleared, and there shouldn't have been any confusion about it.

    But the good news is, I just checked, and it's back up.

    The video is well over 12 million views now.

    Oh, and, just wanted to show a post that was made about a half hour ago on the video:

    "just too good. this is like a super nintendo covered in marshmellow sauce flying through your window and hitting you in the face while running earthbound."

    ... Yes. Yes, it is.

    :)

    The new Scooter kind of irks me a bit. I dunno. I guess I'm just so used to Richard's. Nonetheless, this video is all sorts of awesome. The Muppets are back, ladies and gentlemen. :)

    You know, you may be right. I looked very closely at that ending shot, (a few times) and it really does look like Rizzo's head moved back without his body moving back with it.

    Yeah! Zeppo not crazy!

    Yes you are!

    SHUT UP YOU!

    Loved and then some I don't know a single person who doesn't, some who aren't even muppet fans.

    I know I asked about this, and so did ZeppoAndFriends...

    Well, I was just watching a scene near the end of Great Muppet Caper, when Animal pulls the window over onto himself and all the other Muppets, and noticed Rizzo- in profile- tilt up at the neck and watch the window as it comes towards them.

    So, it's not a new mechanism. Just a seldom-used one.

    I noticed watching 'Muppet Treasure Island' that, right before Billy Bones sticks the tankard on him, Rizzo's head tilts back ever so slightly. So, the mechanism might have been around for a while, but it seems that it was just recently redone so it can tilt back farther.

    P.S. It's fine to just call me Zeppo. :D
