That you're gonna make a game without payin'?
I thought you knew better, don't copy that floppy!
Don't Copy That Floppy is a nine-minute anti-piracy PSA with a song, created in 1992 by the Software Publishers Association. It's about two kids who want to copy a video game, but then a man who calls himself the Disk Protector (played by M. E. Hart) raps about the dangers of piracy and how it affects video game creators.
It received a sequel in 2009 called Don't Copy That 2.
This advertisement provides examples of:
- An Aesop: Don't pirate video games, kids.
- Digital Piracy Is Evil: The main message is that you shouldn't pirate games because it prevents the creators from making new ones.
- Evil Laugh: "Welcome to the end of the computer age. HWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!"
- Nice Hat: Disk Protector wears a pretty cool top hat.
