A piece posted last night on washingtonpost.com sought to report how some folks were making money off the JK Wedding video.

The clip has more than 12 million plays on youtube.com, and, according to the writer, Tameka Kee of paidcontent.org, has “sparked a 20,000 percent increase in album sales on Amazon.”

Kee attributed that amazing figure to a youtube official.

Alas, some new information has been appended on the washingtonpost.com piece:

Correction: The 20,000 [percent] spike in sales stat [from the youtube official] was in reference to Monty Python DVDs (as a result of their channel on YouTube), not the JK Wedding clip.

Translation: This piece now has no merit whatsoever! But thanks for reading!

Speaking of Python and spam….
