I want to share the truth of the Moon Landing with my friends... But the site is down.

As anyone who clicked the link can see, the site is down. This is one of the funniest clips I've seen online and have wanted to show it to other people, but I can't find any mirrors of it anywhere and my googling hasn't turned up anything.

Does anyone by chance have this saved or know of a working mirror? Any tips on how to go about getting it? Is it by chance released in an 'onion' audio collection I'm unaware of? I just don't know the best way to go about finding this clip again.

Heh. I have an MP3 of myself playing guitar along with that (don't ask). Unfortunately, I don't have the audio by itself...

If you really need it and can't find it anywhere else, I'll put the guitar bit online somewhere. Maybe I should do that anyway.

As another point of reference, I found this youtube video, but it's got an annoying background ambiance noise and the dialogue isn't as snappy as I remember the other one being. But maybe this is the best out there now.

I know this song as "The f***ing moon" by the Evolution Control Committee. A few more details of the album here.

The version I have (which came from filesharing years ago) is different from the youtube version -- I'd take youtube's background audio over the version I have, but I'm not sure which set of spoken words is better. I don't know whether the Plagiarhythm Nation v2.0 version is the version I have or the youtube version.

I remember this! It was out of the Onion's hilarious "archives". Here's an image (900 x 1276 pixels) of the original page the video is based on, if it helps:

Thanks for the heads-up on this. I've fixed the page.
