'You're gonna pay' explains the debt ceiling crisis in no uncertain terms for Gen Y

For those who have high school or college-age kids, this video produced by Wilson Getchell as an entry in Powerline's recent contest for the Power Line Prize lays out the stakes of the debt-ceiling debate in about as stark and factual terms as possible, but does so in a very entertaining way.

Young Mr. Getchell didn't win the Power Line Prize, but he impressed the heck out of Instapundit's Glenn Reynolds, who besides being a University of Tennessee law professor and one of the first nationally influential bloggers on the Right side of the Blogosphere, also happens to be something of an authority on great music.

I think this Getchell kid could go a long way. Check it out:
