I came across this picture while randomly perusing google images, and I just had to share it with you guys.
Now, in my mind, one of two things is happening here.
I imagine they may be having the follow conversation:
Troy: Hey kid, about that weed in your backpack…you’re gonna share it with us right? Right? Don’t make me keep tickling you…
Brann: What the fuck!? I thought reaching rock star status was supposed to land you pussy not pudgies!!
Or…Troy is distracting this poor kid because Brann just farted in his hand and is about to deliver a mean cup o’ cheese.
Weigh in with your own captions and scenarios.
Actually, given the fact that the original performance video has garnered close to 12 million (!) hits and the subsequent dance video has racked up another sweet 3.5 milli, maybe I am the loser who is late to the party.
But it’s OK because the Video Yearbook Club at Walt Whitman High School in Huntington Station, New York has my back. They are bringing this song back to the forefront with an incredibly spot-on recreation of the original video (posted below). I must say that I saw the high schoolers’ version of this before I even knew who or what a Madeon was, and then I followed that up by watching the original. And damn it if the high schoolers aren’t just as good, if not better. Way to go guys!
is while watching this…
Because let’s be honest, hot babes in the sun (repping the best team in football!) are the only thing that can redeem such a shitty shitty shitty song.
After the jump, watch Barack Obama try out his famed singing skills on this detestable tune:
Remember that scene in Fight Club where Edward Norton is freaking out and trying to reconcile what he’s become as he’s standing over the dead body of Meat Loaf? Then one of the shaved headed goons offers the following contrived wisdom: “I understand. In death, a member of Project Mayhem has a name. His name is Robert Paulson.” And then they all unflinchingly join in chanting “His name is Robert Paulson,” like so many beautiful, unique snowflakes.
That scene came to mind today when I learned that internet-famous Mr. Trololo had died. You know, this guy:
Well, I suppose only in death, do internet memes have a real name. His name was Eduard Khil. I hope you’re tro-lo-lo-ing in a better place now, sir.
After the jump, I included the clip from the time he was spoofed on Family Guy, as well as a completely unrelated video I found while watching all of this delicious nonsense.
This guy is so completely off his rocker:
Here’s the excuse he later provided, courtesy of Blabbermouth:
He then turned to a female producer off camera and added, “Or I’ll fuck you. How’s that sound?”
According to Glor, Nugent‘s wife told the rocker after the interview to apologize to the female producer, which Ted did. Later Nugent called Glor to say he was rushed to the emergency room after their interview to have a kidney stone removed, which, Glor says, may have contributed to Ted‘s anxiety.
Last night my brother alerted me to what is surely a sign of the musical apocalypse, or at least just another example of its death spiral.
So I watched the above video called “Hot Problems” (a song about hot girls having the same problems as the rest of us uggos). Right off the bat, whoever made this travesty is asking to be mercilessly mocked for that title and concept alone. When will these floozy young girls learn from those who came – and failed – before them? Seriously, Rebecca Black should be the only “hey kids, look at these pictures in health class of oozing syphilitic dongs so it doesn’t happen to you too”-cautionary tale style warning that young girls with any aspirations to make a music video should need. And yet, like unplanned teen pregnancies, this shit just keeps popping up.
My next reaction after the initial total-body revulsion to what I’m assuming must be the generic pop song base track in Garage Band was to question whether these girls were somehow in on the joke. I like to give a sliver of a benefit of the doubt. And while I can’t be sure that the following remarks by the “singers” were, made in a post-upload moment of clarity/attempt to divert the inevitable and relentless lampooning that was sure to follow, it seems, at least for the moment, that these girls were being at least a little facetious:
“We knew that we couldn’t actually sing…so we decided to go for more of a talking singing,” said Garrett.
Both Garrett and Willey emphasize that they aren’t serious about the song, “We don’t think that we’re that hot, no.”
I’m magnanimous enough to believe them at their word, and therefore spare making any jokes at their expense in this space. However, that doesn’t mean I would deprive you of all the jokes that other people have made about this video! Here are some of my favorite YouTube comments:
* “We produced the video as a favor.” You didn’t do any favors, for anybody.
* after hearing this i don’t wanna live in this world anymore.
* flagged for child abuse
* why not do what you are supposed to do, be prostitutes and make me a sandwich. :3
* brb turning gay
