Jay Pharoah has done some great impressions over the years on Saturday Night Live as well as in stand up and interviews. Everyone from Stephen A. Smith to Will Smith (no relation) to DMX and even President Obama. Well it looks like he’s in the music spoofing business now, last summer it was his version of Kanye West‘s “I Am A God,” with “I Am A Dog.” This summer it’s his take on Usher‘s “Good Kisser” with “Bad Kisser.”
It’s been quite some time since the king of the viral video, “Weird Al” Yankovic had a spoof video that I’ve seen. Well that ended earlier today when his spoof of Pharrell‘s smash single “Happy” hit the net. The video for “Tacky features Margaret Cho, Jack Black, and Aisha Taylor and plays up to the original.
DMX has been at the center of many a viral video in the past couple years including; Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer(which he already knows the words to), streaking in a hotel, and his being added to the Reading Rainbow theme song. Well we can now add another gem to that list. This morning on Good Day New York the shows anchors decided to play ‘Name That Tune’ with a song that they got from a Twitter follower. Well, that song was DMX’s 2000 hit single “Party Up (In Here)”
unfortunately the song wasn’t edited and broadcast live for all of New York (and now the world) to see.
It’s graduation season, and generally graduations are happy occasions. Well apparently not in Randallstown, Maryland (Baltimore county), where after the Randallstown High School graduation a brawl broke out that landed two people in jail. The brawl apparently featured men, women, graduates, and an allegedly pregnant woman.
A new video has gone viral on YouTube in the past couple days of former RT (Russia Today) news anchor Liz Wahl quitting live on air on Wednesday night.
Last year Jeff Gordon and Pepsi MAX teamed up to prank a car salesman with the “Test Drive,” Gordon took the salesman on a test drive of his lifetime and basically drove like a racecar driver. Well after the drive a blogger questioned the authenticity of it, so Pepsi and Jeff Gordon along with a friend of the man teamed up for Test Drive 2.
We’re less than a month away from a new era starts in late night television when Jimmy Fallon takes over for Jay Leno on The Tonight Show, and on last nights episode of ‘Late Night,” Jimmy was having a bit of anxiety about leaving the show and got some help from some old faces; Bob Saget, John Stamos, and Dave Coulier AKA Danny Tanner, Uncle Jesse, and Uncle Joey from the hit 90s single Full House for one of their heart to heart talks that the show was famous for.
If you’re in the need of a good smile you’ll get a good laugh this video will surely give you one. In three days it has gotten over a million views on YouTube. A young girl met her father’s twin brother for the first time, and to say she was confused would be an understatement.
Wow, I was one of the many UCF fans who wished that we played Alabama in the Sugar Bowl, so that we would travel to the game. Well, this video makes me a little happy it didn’t.
There have been many times in the past where a TV show will use an older song which winds up popping back up on Billboard’s Hot 100. It happened with Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believing,” after the series finale of The Sopranos. With Billboard now allowing YouTube videos to effect the Hot 100, viral videos are now doing the same.
Connecticut teenager, Peter Swindell, who is the kicker for his high school football team is 54 for 58 on extra points and seven of nine on other field goals this season. In the video he puts the ball on the floor, spins it with his feet, and then kicks about a twenty yard field goal.
An Alabama motorcycle officer has turned in his badge after a video of the officer drag racing a street bike at two consecutive red lights was posted on YouTube on Sunday. In the video the man, identified as Lawrence Lee Spillers, pulls up to the red light and starts talking to the officer. Just before the light turns green he asks the officer if he wants to race, to which the officer replies “I got turbo,” before the two sped off. They then pull up to a red light, when the officer tells him he can try again, and either “on three,” or “on green,” before the two sped off for a second time.
I’m not sure why this happened, but I surely wish it didn’t. Taylor Swift was on Froggy Radio and decided that it would be a good idea to cover Eminem‘s “Lose Yourself,” from the soundtrack to his 8 Mile movie.
