Pennsylvania guys, they’re unforgettable
Katy Perry’s ubiquitous summer mega-hit “California Gurls” has naturally led to many attempts at parody by the girls of this great nation’s other 49 states. It was inevitable, really. Of course, pretty much all of these parodies are sucktastic. Go ahead, go on YouTube and search for “[Insert your state name here] Gurls” and you’ll probably get some hits. I mean, for fuck’s sake, I found one for Wyoming. I’ve literally never met someone who is from Wyoming. I’ve never even met someone who’s been to Wyoming. Even the girl in that video is so ashamed that that’s where she’s from that she put on a video filter before taping.
If you want to make a compelling parody/cover, you’ve got to commit to it, ladies! Otherwise it’s just embarassing.
But the guys in Pennsylvania get it. In fact, they had me at “Pennsyltucky.”
