Cute? Creepy? Why, Yes.
Looks like Dallas-based band The Hourly Radio is reaching a new demographic. This kid's rendition of HR's successful single "Crime Does Pay," posted anonymously (or semi-anonymously--it's attributed only to "Erin") to MySpace, has us slightly creeped out, but also giggling at the subtextual commentary on the median age of HR's fanbase. HR's Kirtland Records' rep, Tami Thomson, says they've got no idea where it came from or who the young child is. Watch for yourself, if you can handle it; us, we're trying to find the number for Child Protective Services. --Jonanna Widner
