"Nice to hit the 10,000 in one week.. As Duane says, "oil is the new tobacco" some love it some hate it, either way it's one of humanities biggest stupidities. It's really hard to quit smoking but even harder to quit your car. WE NEED REGULATION... We need it now! It's completely unfair to our future and it's selfish to take comfort in our oil dependency at the expense of our future. Please ask your government for change today." Marc Buzzell

"Retards. I will be a petroleum engineer in 2 years, and I am the son of a petroleum engineer also. I have no idea why people are making this o out of proportion, especially a bunch of damn Canadian's, BP can buy all of Canada if it wanted to. These disasters ARE VERY RARE, and overall, the oil industry is safer than many other industries, I mean, how many accidents happen i9n a decade? 1? These are just stupid people trying to make a huge fuss of all this. Stupid green freaks." slobhinav on youtube.

Coasters say "No to Oil"
BP bashed on local video, Jan DeGrass
Produced by Videographer Marc Buzzell, the parody stars rappers John Jamin Wagler & Johanna Renée, Caitlyn Turcotte and Duane Burnett as BP's CEO Tony Haywire.
BACKGROUND by Marc BuzzellThe video came about one night as I was captivated by all the horrific imagery of the disastrous oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico on YouTube. I started feeling helpless, saddened, angered and confused. This was the perfect blend of emotions that inspired me to create a hip hop parody.
I saw a couple parodies on YouTube with millions of views which lead me think that a parody based on a popular song would be an effective means to portray a message.
“Who’s down with oil BP” were the first lyrics I wrote and that transferred to doing a parody of 1991’s OPP from Naughty by Nature.
While writing the lyrics I was thinking about our need to lessen our dependency on oil and how this can be done.
“This oil BP thing should be a thing of the past and instead of hating oil BP we should see this as an opportunity to leave oil”, and that’s somewhat what’s reflected in the lyrics. We all have the power to make this happen.
But we need guidance on our path towards oil sovereignty.
Upon completion of the lyrics I pitched the idea of a music video parody to John Jamin and Johanna Renée. Their response was phenomenal. They immediately saw this project as way to make a strong environmental statement.
At this point, Caytlin Turcotte joined the project to help with vocals. Straitsound Studio in Robert’s Creek, British Columbia was supportive of our concept and produced the track.
We recorded the track and I started story boarding the shots for the video. At this point, Duane Burnett was cast to play Tony Hayward's alter ego, Tony Haywire, BP’s CEO in the video. He loved the track and agreed to play the character bringing a wealth of props, costumes, talent and ideas like the plastic dolphin with him.
After a half-‐week of shooting and a few days of editing we posted the video Friday July 2nd. We got 5000 views the first weekend from the people in the Gulf of Mexico, Europe and all around the world. Our message was received with accolades, rave reviews and positive feedback flying in. In just a few days the views have been increasing at a viral rate.
The best part about this project is creating something positive out of the situation.
We all had hope in our eyes when we started this. Our feelings for the people and wildlife of the Gulf of Mexico were suddenly slightly eased by our creativity.
We all agreed the message was “end oil dependency” and we all brought aspects to the project that shaped it into what it is.
We were all tired and sleep deprived from recording the video on top of our regular life obligations, but we did it. At one point I remember driving back home and we were communicating to each other only in song, It was hilarious. I had tears of laughter.
The artists I worked with are amazing. These 4 people completely made themselves vulnerable for the cause.
The very talented and gorgeous Johanna and Caitlyn added a little sex appeal to hit our market.
And I can’t deny judging by our feedback that I think the guys did their share too. The performances were spot on.
But more than anything the artists (JJ, Johanna, Cait and Duane) went out of their way to make this a success.
The lyrics of the original OPP song are very quick, so the success of the track has to be allocated to the vocalists. Secondly to give up one’s free time to contribute to this vision on a volunteer basis is a very good sign of friendship.
The team was very punctual and resourceful for making this happen in such a short time frame. Also we must acknowledge many community members helped us indirectly by letting us use there location and/or props.
In conclusion the artists, the recording studio and myself sent out this message to all of you out there and the only way we can be rewarded for our work is if you play it forward.
Please share it and let’s find a solution to end our oil dependency now. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KZwdGdfgr74

Marc Buzzell grew up in rural Quebec, in the Eastern Townships right on the border of Vermont USA, and is completely bilingual in English and French.
The story about how he ended up in BC is a long one with a whole bunch of wild twist and too many plot points to even create a story arc. But the short version is, Marc tree planted as a young adult and then did community support work, where he met this "gorgeous young blond" (Meg) who he is still with 9 years later. He then followed his dream of video production and went to the University of Capilano North Vancouver. After years of working in the film and video industry in Vancouver Marc moved to the Sunshine Coast.
Marc is a full time video producer, he writes, shoots and edits. Most of his work comes from wedding videos and corporate videos, but he also contracts his services to the film industry.

Brilliant re-do of the original catchy melody... do you have the lyrics posted somewhere...?
Thanks Ruchira, much appreciate your kind feedback. if you go to the info tab near the top of the comment wall you will find the lyrics are there. Want to sing it with us! Altogether now.... LOL
- excellent work! humorous, playful, creative and so painfully tragic to all
The feedback is so awesome! So happy to read about everyone's opinion on the spill.
Kudos to you! Will repost your video to spread the word.
Ah! i was looking forward to this! you guys are great. i tell ya i CAN"T STOP thinking about it. and yeah, super long over due time for change...and as i type below my window some dude screeches his tires and freak out the cyclist. WE ARE IN THIS TOGETHER.
AWESOME! I recognize you guys from when i lived in the creek for a couple months this spring:) Brilliant job, and How Inspiring! way to turn a heart breaking subject fun and palatable. I also love the way you turn the finger back at ourselves, and point out that oil really means gasoline...yeah this oil spill was caused by "the man" but we are the ones who drive the monster. IT is our responsibility to demand change with our dollars. I am lucky to live in a place now that has one of the nations largest bio diesel refineries, free buses that run on bio-diesel and has bio-diesel pumps available to the masses. I hope this becomes a reality in more and more places. Thanks for this kick ass video. much love from North Carolina to the creek and all you beautiful creekers ♥
thanks Iris for your kind feedback and thoughtful words! Please help us get the video out there! Yours for the planet, Duane
done and done! Its posted on my page and friends are already reposting :) Hope it goes viral! ♥

Great lyrics Duane, I especially like this part from verse 3 "I must let go it’s time for our dependency to oil and leave BP says “ We will try our best while the whole world watch and grieve” Fossil fuel stop right now it’s time for your monopoly to go Yet we cant help but watch oil companies laugh and continue to grow" How true is this we need to reduce our consumption and put these oil companies in their place!

I love the new rhythm too. Just wanted to say that, I believe you've all made a better tune than the original! innovation, great flow!
I give this parody an A. It is not just a lame spoof, the lyrics actually have content and the parody actually flows with the tune in right sync.

This is awesome...Nice work Duane Burnett and friends!! I think this video deserves national, I mean global attention!!
Here is a fun video that friends of mine made about the current BP shit storm. I know JJ (keys) has a very small carbon foot print because I see him walking everywhere on the coast. Nice BP exec Duane.
.....this video real should go "viral"...!!!
Excellent!!! Loved it.
Awesome, very clever. I like the part when JJ spins on top of the car. lol

Michele Platje Devlin
Hi Duane, You're welcome. I'll re-post it on a regular basis.
I think it is a fantastic piece; creative, funny, catchy and drives the message home! Keep up the good work and thank you! Michele
yes, spread the message with creative, positive expression!!!
It's great: spokesman's mouths full of drivel to pour into the open ears of the television addicted, an indictment, not only of BP CEOs, but of all of us who have a responsibility to the earth and our fellow creatures to change our destructive ways. Give us more, Duane.
Loved it! I always liked the original OPP - old skool. Loved what you guys did with it. You're all very photogenic and professional - (while having lots of fun too!) What's the next project ;)?

Southern california (family) have sent it out and out and out and said Hippy Hoppy this is wonderful!
Germany.....loved it but dont think they understood all the words. The good part was that it didn't matter because the visual point was so well done!!
Local friends from Tsawwassen-Ladner...... Love it and you Duane!
Local Realtors.....are LTAO laughing their ass off....lol
Duane... It's great! Did you put all that together? I love the role you play! It took me a second to figure out it was you :)
I see Naughty by Nature added the captions to their YouTube song. Good on ‘em. They wonder what BP stands for = British Petroleum. It is owned by a British company but only about 8%. The number one holder of the majority of stocks is J.P. MORGAN CHASE of the USA. Dick Cheney’s Haliburton is also in the mix there somehow.
Did I say I was a fan of Naughty by Nature? I am. Kids with a conscience---I love it!!! ~MJM ;-) Read the book about the 12 Keys: http://www.12GoldenKeys.com

YEAH SUNSHINE COASTERS! You guys rock...especially you sexy BP babes. Love the dolphin shot Duane. Do you have any other blow ups? i was thinking it could be cool to show it at the Conscious Convergence event on Thursday, ...and then again, it may not fit the Mayan theme....but it definitely worth a public showing..Good Play!!
I love it when the chick slaps the cash outta BP's hands. It's like Tony taking it from his mama! I love the insert shots, every single one emphasize the lyrics so well, definitely not a million dollar music video but worth a million dollars none the less. This is a definite MUST SEE for all human kind in this day and age, plus it's funny as sh!t
Thanks again for making this! Such a good message xo
I don't swear a great deal but... F***KING BRILLIANT! Thanks for all that hard work.
Headed to share on Facebook, where a friend just posted it. I hope Naughty By Nature appreciates it...I love their original!
Retards. I will be a petroleum engineer in 2 years, and I am the son of a petroleum engineer also. I have no idea why people are making this o out of proportion, especially a bunch of damn Canadian's, BP can buy all of Canada if it wanted to. These disasters ARE VERY RARE, and overall, the oil industry is safer than many other industries, I mean, how many accidents happen i9n a decade? 1? These are just stupid people trying to make a huge fuss of all this. Stupid green freaks.
