A Musical Message from Louisiana for BP's Clueless CEO

Tony Hayward, CEO of oil giant BP, struck many a nerve when he said, "I'd like my life back" in the wake of the worst environmental disaster in U.S. history.

One of those nerves belongs to Louie Ludwig, a New Orleans-based songwriter who has seen his home state damaged in a way that might not be repairable.

Hayward's comment inspired Ludwig to write a song called "Hey, Tony," reminding the CEO that he's not the only one who would like to have his life back.

"Hey, Tony" and its accompanying video make a powerful statement about the callous nature of some modern corporations. We wanted to share it with our Legal Schnauzer readers:

For those who want a reminder about one of the most tone-deaf comments ever made by a corporate titan, check out Hayward in action here:
