(CNN) - Alvin Greene is no longer on the scene. Or on YouTube, at least.
Last week's hit viral video, which mashed up clips of the enigmatic Senate candidate with a bouncy eighties hip-hop beat, has been removed from YouTube over a copyright claim.
The producers of "Alvin Greene is on the Scene" had apparently used some video from a 2009 Tea Party march - footage owned by Frank Strategies, a conservative communications firm in northern Virginia. (The video is freely available on the firm's own YouTube page.)
Ed Frank, the president of the firm, told CNN in an email that he requested the video's removal because his business involves licensing original footage, including the pictures shot at the Tea Party rally.
