If you saw this morning’s Today Show…

…and saw their “viral video” — an artfully produced multi-track a capella video — Please take a moment to enjoy some of the original videos their guest was ripping off, from the Brooklyn duet Pompaloose. And then click through to their YouTube channel and enjoy!

Here, for comparison, is the somewhat more heavily produced rip-off by “Internet sensation” Mike Tompkins, that was the inspiration for the Today show piece:

Admittedly, Tompkins has clear skills as a producer. You can find what he did with the Today Show folks here: http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/26184891/vp/40193433#40193433

Still, it seems like such a patent rip-off.
