Don't taze me bro: Megaman machinima scolds Vancouver airport security

Tweedman would dig this: A Mega Man 2 machinist has responded to last year's Vancouver airport security shitstorm. You may vaguely recall the incident: A Polish immigrant and airport authorities had a failure to communicate which resulted in good old fashioned problem solving ... they all ganged up and killed him. Its good to see that Canada is more like New Jersey every day! Film director Mike Greenway had this to say about his coup-de-grace:

Megaman helps a lost and confused Polish immigrant at Vancouver International Airport; RCMP-style. The video was really more of a statement on police Taser use than anything. The video that I made is a tongue-in-cheek parody about the incompetence of everyone involved, not police brutality.

Way to back-peddle there, Greenway. Your hilarious video isn't called Police Tasers R Bad: It's called Airport Police, Vancouver and he effectively makes fun of how piss-poor they handled the violent immigrant who (to be fair) didn't calmly scour the area for energy tanks to ensure his survival. My only regret is that the circular bacon pigs didn't toss a burning police dog at his face so Mike could use Woodman's guardian puppies. Those were uber clever, Capcom!

People are reacting horribly to this video like Jesus on a dog anus. A sergeant from RCMP stated that "This video was clearly in poor taste" and he's absolutely right ... but tazing a guy to death? Now that's classy! The actual video footage is below the fold if you'd like to treat yourself to another reality video demonstration why all humans can be stupid, dangerous animals. Or watch Mega Man taze him. Bro.

Want to get involved? You know what to do: March directly into Starbucks and pick up a flaky girl with your powerful feelings on the matter and ultimately raise children that move to Canada and become airport security people that don't taze others to their death (or) pause your demanding career and meticulous diet to write to various politicians around the world, preferably to the Polish Ambassador's office who had the only sober reaction in the pack "The public was disturbed by the event. This is how the subculture reacted to it."

Lady, if you only knew what Garry's Mod can do.

Do you think video games as political cartoons is a strange choice of canvas? In most cases even I might agree. Nevertheless, this video was functional and effective: Tens of thousands of people have already watched it and many unaware of the incident are now taking notice. 

For more evidence on why video games are art information here are a few sources of how incredibly offended everyone is that this video exists. What's your take?
