Pastor Gas

Lee Barron is back to reveal a weird fact: he is the creator of the famous "Pastor Gas" viral video that's lived on the Internet forever. Charles and Isaac talk to Lee about how it feels to have your creative output generate income for others, appear on the MTV Movie Awards, and in general be a minor cultural touchstone without seeing any compensation or credit. Also discussed: the connection between Internet humor and 1980s video montage, what constitutes intellectual property theft, and why something goes viral.
