A boy develops an unhealthy nostalgia for the glue of envelopes after his dad is given the death penalty for pirating Disney movies.

(It's recommended you turn up the volume a little bit)

You can read Stephen's letter exchanges with his father here:

Or write to Stephen Cooper himself, just email:

It's an interesting story, but why the fuck is it a parody? Cuz it's more of a depressing drama.
And who the hell gets the death penalty for pirating? Seriously, you'd get the death penalty for murder, but not pirating.
It's good, but it just... didn't make me laugh. I came in expecting a parody, and I got a depressing drama.
But other than the miscategorization I liked it. It was interesting.

Rated 1 / 5 stars

Not funny, depressing and NOT a parody. This isn't a parody at least google search if you don't know how to make a parody. A parody involves poking fun at, humorously criticizing an idea or story bringing to light the silliness of the idea.

If author was trying to make a 'dark-comedy' well..., he failed miserably at that too. You should search newgrounds for parodies on funny shows, like Akame ga Kill parody etc., now that's gold.

Jeez dude, way to respond so seriously to this video. It's a joke.
Also, IP does not stand for intellectual property, and intellectual property also has a lifespan of 100 years, not 10. Though this may vary per country.

For some reason I've actually gotten a decent amount of responses that have taken this as a some kind of cautionary tale. I didn't think I was really being all that subtle in the fact that it's a parody.
