For you lazy, cheapskate bastards, the day you’ve been anticipating has finally arrived: The Interview has finally popped up for free on YouTube. Yes, it was already on YouTube, but they were trying to charge you $5.99 for it. For those of you who were only kind of interested in this movie in the first place and didn’t rush out to watch it as soon as it dropped, today is your lucky day.

Of course, ironically, as we shine a torch to it, we also have to point out that this is an illegally uploaded version that neither YouTube nor Columbia Pictures, the motion picture arm of Sony that released the film, endorses. So, in a sense, if you watch this bootleg copy, you’re sort of helping North Korea. If you can live with that, go nuts.

The Interview, which stars James Franco and Seth Rogen and tells the story of two journalists tasked with killing North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un, has been vilified by the country and caused the massive hacking of Sony’s internal documents. And now it’s free on YouTube. Hell, maybe North Korean hackers put it there … think about that.

Share this because every man, woman and child needs to decide for themselves where they stand on video piracy.
