This is a video of a short skit that OCLC Research staff Titia van der Werf,  Thom Hickey, Roy Tennant, Shenghui Wang and Max Klein performed to introduce the "Metadata Out of Control: Network-level Metadata Aggregations" presentation at the OCLC Europe, Middle East and Africa Regional Council (EMEARC) Annual Meeting on 26 February in Strasbourg, France.

The skit illustrates the importance of supplying quality data on the web by focusing on the data that web users need, including who, what, when, where, and why.
