The photo above is from the latest “Not So Pure Michigan” parodies, which depict the all-too-frequent construction zones.
Someone just didn’t see the humor in John Kerfoot’s video.
Kerfoot, of St. Clair Shores, has produced a series of parodies based on the “Pure Michigan” tourism campaign. He calls it “Not So Pure Michigan.”
The parodies have been enjoying popularity on YouTube, but recently the video featuring Royal Oak as a congregating spot for “douche bags” of all types, disappeared from the site.
Although the faces of some people who appear in the parodies are obscured, Kerfoot says that an unspecified person in the video objected to his or her appearance and complained to YouTube. Since the person could not be identified, the video was taken down by YouTube.
