Homestuck: The Baby is You Animated

The Baby Is You is a rock opera musical made by Radiation & friends, roughly 14 minutes long and consisting of 11 parts. It includes art by astroliner. It is a deliberately crude work about mpreg made in reaction of rules on the MS Paint Adventures forums.
The MSPA forum's Art forum had a "no pregnant kids" rule, and there was some wank and discussion about censorship. Radiation decided to test the rule (quote: "i wonder if the pregnant kids thing extends to song") by creating an album that centers around Dave Strider giving birth to John Egbert. The album can be considered a deliberate shockfic due to this.
The Baby Is You was posted on the forum on October 14, 2010. It was quickly met with shock and horror, as well as some amusement, and removed by mods a short time later. Radiation was also banned from the forum by mods, a significant reaction, considering he was on the Homestuck creators team.
On December 24, a user called "anonymousbaby" post the album on the forum again. It was removed by mods with a notice that "Posting anything from this album is unacceptable.".

The musical gamed more attention after the popularity Undertale of Radiation/Toby Fox's indie game. People unfamiliar with Homestuck who watched the musical were also shocked by it.
