Trending: Health Tech Podcast: How one woman built her own artificial pancreas and started a DIY movement

The campaign to kill the Stop Online Piracy Act has lots of support from some of the Internet’s biggest names, including Wikipedia, Cheezburger and other big sites that plan to blackout their pages Wednesday in protest of the bills.

Now the initiative has its own video and song, as well.

The team at YouTube comedy channel LaughPong, has put together this video, to the tune of “American Pie,” seeking to raise awareness of SOPA and the related Protect IP Act. The tune might not win any Grammy awards, but given the intense interest in SOPA and PIPA in technology circles and increasingly the broader public, it’s bound to get more than its share of views.

LaughPong’s Zac Cohn, who is also organizing the Seattle campaign against the bills, says the idea was to educate and entertain, and issue a call to action.

Look for a cameo by Cheezburger chief Ben Huh, as well.
