Cee-Lo "Fuck You" update

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “I have heard the radio friendly ‘clean’ version. I feel it loses some impact. Part of the attraction to the song is how upbeat and joyful it is, whereas the insulting lyrics offer a counterpoint that strikes a perfect balance. As far as I’m aware, there are no plans for me to make a ‘clean’ lyric video, and certainly no one has even mentioned doing it.” —Terry Scruby, who created the wicked-clever, exclusively verbal video for Cee-Lo’s “Fuck You,” in the N.Y. Times. The clip has been viewed around 3.5 million times on YouTube, though some Internet analysts have noted that this figure is relatively low for what many expected to be a viral phenomenon rivaling that of Gnarls Barkley’s “Crazy.” (8/30a)
