Who are Rooster Teeth and why have they used our name?

Ranking as one of the odder occurences of the week must be this. A group called Rooster Teeth, who make Youtube videos about video games, have put up a video which they have called, for no explicable reason, "Doctor Who Season 6 - Scottish Falsetto Sock Puppet Theatre".

There is no mention of us in the video itself and, apart from the appearance of their own sock puppets as part of the video, no connection. The title they've lifted is that of one of our own vids from 2013 which was quite a high rater, getting 12,000 views, while Rooster Teeth's own has only had 85 hits, despite them having half a million followers.

If we ever get an explanation as to why they've done this bizarre title-lifting thing, and whether we benefit from it in any way, I'll let you know.

You know that Rooster Teeth video you linked to isn't the real Rooster Teeth account
