This is technically old news but it's new to me: the "We Are LeBron" video is gone from the internets.

Not that anyone will truly miss it, especially after The Decision. And the very fact it's been gone for a little while now and no one has really noticed means people aren't looking for it, but it's a little curious that after having dazzled (or bored) the public for months that it would disappear.

What happened?

The Plain Dealer reports that Break.com pulled the video after lawyers representing Mijac Music and Lionel Richie threatened the parody with a cease and desist letter.

Really? Probably for the best, at least for Clevelanders. And the entire world. Nobody really needs to ever see that again.
