"Hello, Pope Is Dead" clip?
May 5, 2010 7:37 PM   Subscribe

Are there any clips preserved on the Internet of the "Hello, Pope is dead!" announcement which was transmitted during a live TV broadcast a few years back?

I've found quite a few references to it, but every link to the video is bad. And, complicating matters, there is now a band on Youtube going by the name "Pope Is Dead." Given the significance, and the fact that it was a short clip that would seem to fall under fair use protection (IANAL, YANML, etc.), it seems weird that every clip is gone. Am I just looking in the wrong places?

Is this what you're looking for?

Here's the Fox News broadcast screwup. I think what you're looking for is about forty seconds in.

This was the official announcement.
