Blink-182's classy response to the unauthorized use of their music

It's not unusual for musicians to get their undies in a twist over the unauthorized use of their music in YouTube videos, whether the music in question was legally purchased or not. The members of blink-182 could have followed suit, but they did the classy thing and actually expressed their gratitude to those "pirate" YouTubers:
To launch our first single in eight years, AT&T helped us search YouTube for every instance of fans using our music without our permission. And then we rewarded them for it. This film is made out of clips from all those videos. Thanks for being a fan.

That's a pretty cool thing to do, and I'm not even a fan.
