hahhaha i cant believe how long this guy has been around for. I remember omish paradise like it was ages ago.

this is even more amusing if you're familiar with the hip hop artist chamillionaire and his recent effort, "ridin' dirty," of which this is a parody.


Blogger Almost Ignatius J. said ... (2:44 AM) : 

is THAT what it was a parody of?

none of us had ANY idea.

thank you for pointing that out.

it really DOES enhance the listening experience.

The Editorial Staff of Glib & Superficial presumes a certain level of cultural knowledge amongst our readers.

Ignorance of current gangsign, for example, will lead to a degraded G&S experience, as will failure to recognize the connection between The O.C. and CSI, via Mistress Heather.

I'm curious as to your opinion, GF. Is Melinda Clarke hotter as Lady Heather, or as Julie Cooper-Nichol? For what its worth, I would argue that anybody looks their best standing next to Mischa Barton.

I was aware of "ridin' dirty" because of my brother in law.

I still have my cassette single of "Amish Paradise."

At my senior prom, we had a huge screen up front and his video parody of Nirvana's "Smells like teen spirit" (is that the right title?) had everyone dead still in loud laughter on the dance floor.

Weird Al is a national treasure.
