Soldiers’ spoof Iraq video crashes computers

‘British soldiers serving in Iraq crashed defense ministry computers in London last week after officials downloaded a spoof video the troops had made of a chart-topping song.

The soldiers’ four-minute video take of the 1971 hit ‘Is This The Way To Amarillo’ had officers laughing out loud back at London headquarters as they e-mailed copies to each other. [..]

In the spoof video, a soldier looking like Kay marches through a British base in Iraq calling on fellow troopers to join him, including two dressed only in underwear, webbing and rifles.’

And you can see the video here.
