Video of the Day: The Occupy Wall Street Music Video

The Occupy Wall Street protesters came to Washington, D.C. last week, and Remy Munasifi was there to greet them -- and mock them in a parody YouTube video.

Munasifi is D.C.'s official unofficial YouTube parody singer/songwriter. He attained local fame with "Arlington: The Rap," "Metro Song," and "Raise the Debt Ceiling."

Of the Occupy Wall Street protesters, he sang:

but first we need posters
we need to make signs
but to do so it seems
that we need some supplies

We need poster board
I can't make it myself
but it's 10 cents a sheet
at the store it's on sale
an example of economies of scale
it's so evil

Congratulations, Occupy Wall Street. You've got your own protest ballad, now.
