The Cop from the Village People Took Down a “YMCA” Parody Video by Missouri Farmers

A group of Missouri farmers made a “YMCA” spoof video to urge Congress to pass the USMCA . . . also known as the U.S.-Mexico-Canada trade agreement.

It was pretty corny, but it got the point across.  And the White House liked it enough to Tweet it out to its followers.

But alas, its online life was short-lived, after VILLAGE PEOPLE cop VICTOR WILLIS slapped the cuffs on it.  He had it taken down because it’s a copyright violation.

He said, quote,

“Because the Missouri Farm Bureau failed to obtain a license for use of my song, in addition to intertwining my original lyrics with new lyrics, I must decline this specific use of the song in conjunction with the ‘USMCA.'”
