Ben, what I love about this rendition, though, is that it takes a popular hit by a teenager from New Zealand (who is making a statement about the current state of media and its coverage of celebrity and such, reimagines it with an a cappella lens, and then posts it on the Internet. It's playful and fun and brings it back to the States with a different sensibility. For me it exemplifies the creativity that takes place through popular culture, rather than the negative that can so often be worried about coming out of popular culture.
