A few weeks ago, a spoof-sort of-of Sugar, We're Going Down by Fall Out Boy was posted on Google Video. Today, I find a similar video from someone else entirely. I believe this is what Ghost in the Shell described as a "Stand-Alone Complex"; loosely interpreted as the parallelization of human thought due to the ubiquity of media. Or, to use the story's description, "copies with no original". The same concept was mentioned in one of Michael Crichton's Jurrasic novels by Ian Malcolm, who states that he's worried the Internet will destroy mankind.
