The video was pretty wild.
If it wasn't for the fact that this video is now well known, I can see that as a cool way to get past nosy surveillance guards in a less free country.
So you get them to release the CD / download and get it to go to the top of the music charts. "Hooray, Culture!" they say. Then say two weeks later the minister of technology comes up and says "Uh... Mr. Supreme Comrade? We have a problem. Four million people now have that forbidden program."
"Oh look, he's playing nice music!"
