EMI remind you why the music industry is both doomed & despised

There's been a bit of joy in the darkness for the last few weeks, as people have enjoyed the Welsh-positive that parody of Jay-Z and Alicia Keys that was Newport State Of Mind.

Not any more, though. EMI have rushed in to slap a takedown and had YouTube throw the video.

Because, god knows, it must have really been hurting Jay-Z's sales.

Perhaps if EMI spent a bit more time growing its business, rather than going round stealing the kids' balls like they're the grumpy park keeper of the internet, they might not be flailing about in the manner of a binliner caught in a tree.
