David Lynch forces my video of him making an ass of himself off of YouTube
The David Lynch Foundation for Consciousness Based Education and World Peace made an ass of itself in Berlin in 2007, and it became a very popular YouTube item roaming the internets. Yesterday The Foundation forced YouTube to take it down. Someone called "Raja Lynch" has however posted the video again here. Their notice to YouTube is below.
