So, this song happened. And I didn’t know it was a thing. But apparently it’s a thing having been appropriated by my two favorite representations of quintessentially American high and low culture.
1. The Jersey Shore
This video made me laugh the first time I saw it. Let’s just say the sun was down, and I was feeling…receptive. Anyway, that high voice in the beginning borders on terrifying, but the earnest, childlike joy that the castmembers are experiencing with a simple isight just warms the heart. Then when they realize they can go in and out of frame it turns more into one of those Hannah Barbera montages where the kids from Scooby Doo are all running in and out of doors in a hallway chased by a Mummy. Only the Mummy is Angelina and Scooby is Pauly D.
2. Awesome film/dance/art
Michael Flatley, you just got served. God I love the choreo in the middle section.
