Shock! Video Celebrating Cyber-terrorism Wins Second Prize in Fox Sponsored Contest

by Urizenus Sklar on 17/03/07 at 11:09 am

Just a few weeks ago, Fox News was lamenting the virtual terrorism (and ageplay) in Second Life and calling upon Democratic Presidential candidate John Edward Edwards to condemn it. Today, Fox sub-sub-sub-sub- division Fox Atomic celebrates those exact very same cyber-terrorists by honoring a griefer-made machinima video celebrating Toronto-based griefer Plastic Duck. More shocking still: the credits thank Moo Money, which means that the Electric Sheep, Edelman PR, and the Herald Meth Lab are all implicated too! Oh and a Prokofy Neva Body Double ™ makes an appearance too. As usual, Petey (Eddie Haskel) Peterson has been put forward as the human face of this diabolical organization.

    Who, me? Oh, I wouldn’t know *anything* about Griefzilla!

    Howver I would suggest that this 30,000 foot mallard might continue his malicious rampage until the following conditions are met:

    1) Somebody makes me breakfast. I’m hungry but the kitchen is like way over there.
    2) Prokofy Neva purchases a SomethingAwful forums account and posts a thread introducing herself and her views
    3) Plastic Duck for GTO Jedi

    In order to bring more attention to this terrible ordeal, Houston Nutt of the Metaverse Minutely has filed a separate report:

    Oh right, forgot to link to that report. Sorry Petey. This history of Plastic Duck somehow helps it all make sense:

    30,000 feet tall? Went over by too much, don’t you think?

    Most buildings are in 1,100 to 600 feet range.

    har har har…whatever

    “Fox Atomic celebrates those exact very same cyber-terrorists ”

    The exact same cyber terrorists that what ? I’ve watched the Fox news vid a few times now and there was no discussion of terrorism. Only the lamentation that they the reported couldn’t remove the titler terrorist from her group name. Keep this objective please. The article focuses Edwards and Sex in SL , no on cyberterrorist.

    Uri, I don’t see why a blonde woman with large black glasses is considered a “body double for me”. I’m not blonde and don’t have black glasses in RL or SL.

    Also, I don’t express shock or fear when griefed; I express determined journalism. Difference.

  15. Urizenus

    Mar 17th, 2007

    maybe you’re right Prok. I knew it was either a Prokofy Neva body double or a Britney Spears body double. It’s hard to tell them apart when they are at the computer.

    By the way, I made that video, Uri forgot to credit me <: (

    And speaking of terrible griefers and peurile phallus pushing w-hat’s with no regard for others feelings, If I get my 100,000 linden prize money, I’m going to donate it all to the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life campaign. You heard it here first.

    Now I just need to wait for Fox to respond to my emails :(

    The video should of won the grand prize. Can’t you people get past the retarded “omg it’s a griefer” and see the video for the talent poured into it? None of you could do better. Maybe that’s the whole problem…

    Way to go once again Mr. Monstre! Great work!

    Nice parody video. It’s not often a video made in SL actually looks fairly professional AND makes me smile.

    Mar 18th, 2007

    Yeah clarrice, I love Pierce, but I think Monstre’s vid edges his out. I would have given this a 1st. Even though it…

    Glorifies Griefers! :-0

    >If I get my 100,000 linden prize money, I’m going to donate it all to the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life campaign. You heard it here first.

    Um, I’m utterly unimpressed. Giving a grand total of $370 US to a large, wealthy, charity that helps prop up the bloated HMO and pharmaceutical industry in America is hardly going to undo the reputational damage you’ve incurred by spearheading griefing attacks in Second Life. Sorry, you’d have to work a lot harder with more sterling stuff.

    And nothing in fact can undo that enormous property damage you’ve done, and social toll you’ve taken on the people of Second Life. Anything you do will only be just more disgusting reputational enhancement and pathetic loser posturing to get attention.

    You’re right Prokofy, he should keep it and spend it all on beef jerky or something.

    Oh and I think Decomposing probably won but awarding a non US person airline tickets to Costa Ricca or wherever it was, wasn’t happening.

    Yeah Decomposing shouldn’t waste it on a medical charity. He should spend it on polygon Nikes and cyber whores who do ‘Ghost control’. Something more meaningful. Awarding money to charity is what Stalinesque-Leninites would do.

    Jesus fucking christ Prok. I don’t even know what to say to that.

    so is prok saying she supports cancer because she is against the donation of money to the SLRFL fund? but yet she is against griefing? I guess there is no such thing as cancer in the cyber world

    Now, now, Uri. Do I look like a shaven-head pop-tart in rehab with my mascara running all emo? I do not. Puleeze.

    No, but you sound like a saggy old cunt who is so psychotic, so sociopathic, so paranoid, so delusional, that you can’t even give due credit for creativity or some modicum of charity.

    Every day that passes Prokofy I pray to Christ that you are just the most elaborately constructed troll in the history of the Internet, because if you should be too stupid to remember to breath.

    >You can’t even give due credit for creativity or some modicum of charity.

    I don’t think it is creative, though. It doesn’t deserve any praise. It’s a hackneyed King-Kong story line that has been done gadzillion times. The previous machinima from this author with the fake 1930s sort of science film from school was much funnier and better for its genera — there was more parody to it, though even there, it flounders by banging on the head too much.

    In this movie, too, the Plastic Duck figure beats his chest too much, and fearful people run too much — it’s just too many frames. The author needs to learn to “say, don’t tell,” and needs to learn a lot about editing and camera work and framing a story and a character. Lingering on the man burning to death who was supposed to try to battle the monster was vindictive and cruel — that’s not what real film-makers trying to tell a story as a form of art do.

    No, this is just the footage of a griefer’s fantasy. It’s not really a movie, and doesn’t deserve to be called art, or to win prizes. It’s only a commentary on the paucity of good machinima that it can win at this juncture.

    yes, the tragedy of W-hat, the tragedy that makes them gnash their teeth endlessly outside the gates is that they aren’t jsut lousy amateur hacks because they’re pretending to be lousy amateur hacks; they really ARE lousy amateur hacks and then can’t outgrow it and become really good at being humorous. They are not like any of the great satirists. They are merely the banality of evil.

    Please show me some machinima that does reach your lofty criteria Prok, i’d be interested to see it.

    I was credited because I was the cheerleader running in one of the scenes. I’m also not affiliated with The Grid Review anymore, so someone else will have to uncover their “conspiracy”. I’m still looking for that meth lab, though, if you have it somewhere! <3

    I think Ms. Neva is just mad her part was so small.

    “gadzillion times”. Missed opportunity there: “godzillion”.

    ah moo was the cheerleader. I wondered who that hawtie was. I liked the pom poms.

    FYI, This is what Prokofy considers good satire:

    If Prokofy thinks you’re unfunny, _count your lucky stars_.

  35. Freddy

    Or how about her praise of this warmed over, 15-year-old joke from the Simpsons?

  36. RachelO Orochi

    Mar 19th, 2007

    Oh now, let’s not drag neutral third parties into this. Though it is interesting how… lukewarm that sense of humor is… Oh well. Family Circus is a very popular comic strip, too…

    I wasn’t sure what could have prompted Fox to consider this until partway through I heard the male scream that is required by the sound technician’s union to be in every Hollywood action blockbuster. Now it all makes sense.

  38. RachelO Orochi

    Mar 20th, 2007

    Uh… yeah that, and because it’s -funny-.

    “pathetic loser posturing to get attention.”

    Yikes, Pot-Kettle disease strikes another victim.

    Maybe certain washed-up book translators should start doing something for the world instead of sitting on their fat ass all day playing with virtual barbie dolls.
