Beauty and the Beastie Boys

Just a quick note before my wife discovers I’m on the computer: it seems GoldieBlox relented in its quest to prove its parody viral video was fair use of the Beastie Boys’ song Girls. I think this is a good ending all around: GoldieBlox got its message out, started a debate (around several issues at once), but ultimately showed its soft side by honoring MCA’s will stating his prohibition on Beastie Boys music in advertising.

Happy Turkey Day!
