'Mosh' video re-edited

The original cut of the video ended with a shot of an animated Eminem leading a mob to register to vote, but this has been changed now the election has taken place.
...
Interscope, Eminem's record label, agreed to pay for a new 50-second ending which now features the same mob storming the Capitol during Bush's State Of The Union address. This leads to a shot of Dick Cheney suffering a heart attack.
Anyone have a link? I can't find it.

I'm downloading it right now. It's taking a long time but I think it's a problem on my end of the connection. Needless to say, I got the link from Drink Tank archives :)

BTW, I strongly suspect that Eminem's involvement with the 2004 election was just as closely coordinated with the Kerry campaign as Bruce Springsteen's was. (Although a more apt metaphor may be Skynard's support of W.) I think they tried to keep each other at arm's length because they knew that too close an association could cost valuable votes from candy-asses.

Thanks for the link. Not much to write home about.

Yea, I expected a much stronger alternate ending. But what can you do. Just in case, a good place to dig up the video in the future or past would be: GNN

At the time of posting, the new version didn't seem available on GNN.

Probably one reason they show no actual violence is that you can get arrested for saying you want to kill the president.
