Guess this is Taylor-related, so I'll post here, although maybe it should be under "Artists".  Anyway, these are pretty funny--the orignal one has over 6.2 million hits now.  The back story (which I am quoting from the email that I got the links from):

"A musician named Dave Carroll recently had difficulty with United Airlines. United apparently damaged his treasured Taylor guitar ($3500) during a flight. Dave spent over 9 months trying to get United to pay for the damages caused by baggage handlers to his custom Taylor guitar. During his final exchange with the United Customer Relations Manager, he stated that he was left with no choice other than to create a music video for YouTube exposing their lack of cooperation. The Manager responded : 'Good luck with that one, pal'.

So Dave posted a retaliatory video on YouTube. The video has since received over 5.5 million hits. United Airlines contacted the musician and attempted settlement in exchange for pulling the video. Naturally his response was: 'Good luck with that one, pall'"

I thought everyone had seen these by now.  Regardless, he's a pretty talented guy.

Dave & his band ( Sons of Maxwell) are good ol Nova Scotian boys very talented - a pleasure to see live. Plays a Taylor though                        Part 3 should be out soon. They are every bit as good live as these vids
