The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) launched a parody music video for the holidays, knocking the National Security Agency’s (NSA) domestic surveillance programs.
In a video posted to YouTube last week, the ACLU sings about the NSA to the tune of “Santa Clause is Coming to Town.”
“You better watch out, you better not Skype, you better log out, yeah you better not type, the NSA is coming to town,” the song starts.
“They see you when you're sleeping, they hear while you're awake, they know who you call and who you write, so encrypt for goodness' sake!” the song continues.
The ACLU released the video in conjunction with an online petition it launched, urging people to press members of Congress to review the programs, which the ACLU considers too far-reaching in scope.
