  1. @TheFakeTruth1 feel sorry for you that even your YT name has no substance – let alone your comments . . . but thanks for your "thought"

    BTW – just un-subbed to this garbage . . . !

  2. Pretty powerful stuff, actually. It wasn't funny, it was just a way of revealing the dark underbelly of the church, and the way some of the minds behind the black shirts and white collars see the world.

    Not showing the eyes of the priest was a good move. It made him seem more like a shadowy bogeyman.

    Well done Shearer, this is art.

  3. nice beat, original
    the idea of not showing their eyes was pretty unique too, goes cood with the beat
    like peanutbutter and bananas

  4. This is wonderfully dark and creepy. Thanks Harry. It raised the hair on the back of neck and I hope it has some of the same effect on those who need to hear it and think about it.

  5. @GhostofCicero i think it's showing that the more kids he molests, the creepier the priest got, and the less he cared about is apperence. but that's just a guess i actually have no idea

  6. @TheFamousPencil That's the point, they are supposed to look sinister. If they had bleached teeth and fake tans the video wouldn't work

    Also, I would advise making an effort on typing words correctly, it will help cushion the blow of your insane stupidity.
    It was very hard to translate your 'retards sprawl' as i anow calling it into a readable language. i hope i have done so correctly. But if you do not wish to degrade yourself further I would suggest not replying to this.

    (Sorry if there have been too many long words, i tried to keep the vocabulary minimal)

  8. @707BLACKDEVIL707
    What does that even mean?
    it's hard just trying to read your comments.
    it's apparent that your education system has failed on you.
    I will not be replying to any more of your comments. So don't waste any preciouse brain space typing one.

    Basically, The catholic church covered up the fact that lots of priests had sexually abused children. One specific case was a school of deaf boys. Hence the song.
    The pope took part in helping the catholics cover up the disgusting crimes and that in it's self is sick.

  10. i love how his beard just gets thicker and thicker through out the whole video haha…..harry shearer is the best

  11. Come on ! There is no better way to keep down population then start fucking the boys ! I am sorry but Aristotle was right . Think about it !

  12. No fair that such a catchy song makes me feel so gross. Definitely don't want to get caught singing those lyrics.

  13. First time I heard this I thought it said "Dead Boys". Horrifyingly, that surprised me no less than the truth. & agreeing with other posters here, catchy tune, don't want ot be cought humming, & didn't know wether to like or flag. Sign of the times. 🙁
