Watch Super Agent Ari Emanuel Blow Up The Verge's Josh Topolsky

Here’s another entertaining clip from the D conference.

Hollywood super agent Ari Emanuel was blaming Verizon, AT&T, and Google for allowing Hollywood’s content to be pirated.

Topolsky, during the Q&A, said that didn’t make any sense. He said it was like seeing your house was robbed then blaming the road that let the criminals drive up to it. A pretty good analogy, we think.

But then Emmanuel blew up Topolsky and his argument saying that Google can prevent people from finding child porn, so it should be able to prevent people from finding Game of Thrones as an illegal download.

Topolsky didn’t have much of a response.

You can see the exchange at the 16:50 mark in this video. (And if this video doesn’t play, head over to AllThingsD to see it.)
