What's the 419?

This is the world premiere of a video I made to go along with my rap song about getting spam e-mail. I wrote this rap during a Williston (Vt.) Selectboard meeting that I was reporting on a couple years ago. (It was a slow meeting). It was fun making the vid! The title is "What's the 419?" as in the 419 Internet scams. You know, where the Nigerian banker says if you give him your contact info they will send you like 50 million bucks? 419 is the section of the Nigerian penal code dealing with money scams apparently.

I am now bracing myself to become in Internet superstar. Here goes...

I love the video, and, even tho I know you (!) it looks like a "performer" doing a very funny rap during cool video scenes. I wonder if the moms of celebs ever feel that way about seeing their kid playing a role. The lyrics are funny and luckily the language your future employers might object to is blurry. So cool! And to think it all started with those beers on your first web site!
