Occasionally we at The Cryptosphere feel that the cyberwar/hacktivism world could use a little levity, and therefore we are pleased to present this otherwise news-value-free video by Xylergeist. It is nothing more nor less than a drag king recreation of Barrett Brown’s second most-famous video, the infamous bubble bath video, starring YouTuber Hellender.

What followed was inevitable.
