Angry dad sings his own threatening version of “Rude”

July 14, 2014 | 1 comment

Last year a new band named Magic! shot up the charts with their hit debut “Rude,” a song about a guy who asks his girlfriend’s parents if he can marry her. When her parents say no, he says they’re being rude and that he’s going to marry her anyway.

Benji and Jenna Cowart have responded with a version of the song that they call “the dad’s side of the story,” which ends a little differently for the lovestruck young man…

Of course, the video has generated debate between people who think the parental version is an overreaction and those who think the kids in the original Magic! version are being disrespectful. YouTube commenter Tu Pham said,

Sometimes the bass player in a band is only there to back up the guys with the guitars and microphones. But there are plenty of bands and songs that push the bass right up front.

Dad sits in hot, closed car to see what it’s like… Internet turns his urgent warning into R&B

This past week a North Carolina man, Terry Williams, sat in his car with the windows shut during a sunny 90-degree day and recorded a message about what it feels like and how insane it is to leave kids in that situation.

The urgency of his message and his challenge to try it yourself has made his video spread all over the internet. When Reddit got a hold of it, something magical happened… Someone mashed up Williams words with an instrumental by Dr. Dre.

Because, why not, right?

Williams’ goal with the video was to try to keep the possibility of this awful sort of accident in parents’ minds so that it won’t happen to them. It is a worthy cause to share. Hopefully, this silly version of his message will just keep it going…

You were faked out by the 29-impressions song…but when you see how you won’t even care

Last week the internet was amazed at Rob Cantor’s rendition of an original song using celebrity voices.

The video was titled, “29 Celebrity Impressions, 1 Original Song.” In it, Rob says, “We’re gonna perform an original song for you with 29 different celebrity impressions.” But he wasn’t actually doing all of those impressions. In fact, he didn’t do any of them.

Today Rob posted this behind-the-scenes look at the intensive process required to make the perfectly lip-synced video that now has over 7 million views. We were all tricked, but after seeing their work, we don’t even care…

When the Swiss-German girl duo called Boy played their hit song “Little Numbers” at New York’s Union Hall last year, they couldn’t have predicted the response. It was the band’s first show in America, and the crowd sang along with both the chorus and bridge.

The singer’s response was charmingly priceless…

Paul McCartney invites man onstage to propose, but didn’t expect how awesomely he’d do it

John and Claudia of Rochester, New York attended Paul McCartney’s concert on Saturday with two signs. Hers said, “He won’t marry me ’til he meets you.” And his read, “I have the ring and I’m 64.”

The silly signs worked and McCartney invited them on stage to get engaged. How John went about his proposal, however, was completely unexpected and incredibly awesome…
