Well, to offer the song in (even) slightly better quality. The old version is still on the channel, but use HQ if possible and play back the video on a single YouTube page to get a bigger video window.
The song in this video was written by Lehrer as early as 1952 or 1953 (may be even earlier), years before an Austrian version appeared, for which Lehrer did not get any credit. Sometimes Lehrer himself would cover other people's songs, but they were always credited. "Poisoning Pigeons In The Park" is a true Tom Lehrer original.
