Basically about a year ago Nalts uploaded a video called Creepy Ice Cream Man in which he made a spoof about Ice Cream Trucks. The video had a jingle sung by Nalts himself in which he sings about kids being taken into the van. Nalts then filmed the guy as he was passing out ice cream and asked him if he lived in his ice cream van. At the end of the video Nalts mentioned that the creepy ice cream man was just a good guy working for a living.

He later took down the video but then re-uploaded it with the Ice Cream Man's face blurred. While I am a huge fan of Nalts, I do have to disagree with him on this. I do think that Nalts hurt the man's business. When you work with children for a living, all it takes is an accusation and you are out of work. No evidence is required. In my opinion Nalts should offer a settlement.

However, Nalts should consult with his lawyer who knows more of the details than I do. I just wish him luck in court and hope he comes out ok. However this should be a warning to all of us to not put people in our videos without getting a consent form signed. This can happen to any of us.

Also just so we are clear, this is the transcript of the video:

(video opens with kids playing in the park and nalts singing in a high pitch Fred style voice)
Creepy Ice Cream Man
Creepy Ice Cream Man
He's hatching his next plan
He steals all your dreams and drives away in his van
The Creepy Ice Cream Man

He sells over-priced confections
and he's got a permanent erect...posture

(Nalts doing a whipser voice over with reverb)
Chad Chad Chad
(Back to singing in a Fred voice)
Charlie can't you see, he makes lemon ice from your pee
(Nalts back to the reverb whipser with the camera showing the ice cream man and his van)
Kill Kill Kill Kill
Kill Kill Kill Kill
(back to his kids and in the Fred voice)
His Heart is full of doom, and tonight you will find him in your room
The Creepy Ice Cream Man
The Creepy Ice Cream Man
The Creepy Ice Cream Man
His Bugs Bunny is not funny

(Now Nalts is interviewing the guy pointing the camera at the ice cream man and pans around the inside of the van)
Nalts: "Do you ever sleep in here?"
IceCreamMan: "Sleeping?"
Nalts: "Yeah, do you like sleep on the bottom?"
IceCreamMan: "Why should I?"
Nalts: "You could if you wanted though."
IceCreamMan: "I don't, I have a house, you know, I have a wife and kids."
Nalts: "Yeah."

(Nalts pointing the camera back at himself walking away form the van)
Turns out he is a nice guy just trying to support his family. Now, I just feel like a jerk.

(Back to the playground but with the camera on him and singing in Fred voice)
I tipped him 'cause I'm guilty
also so that he does not kill me

(Then the camera is back on one of his kids)
Nalts: Where did you get that ice cream?
Son: From the creepy ice cream man
Nalts: Hey, thats not nice
