Friday: Pile of Discarded Video

I guess we can call this the ‘Video Dump’ edition. Here are a couple of things I’ve been meaning to share with you:

First, the Worst Baseball Hype Video Ever, courtesy of the Florida Marlins and their horrendous decision to entrust this season to the likes of Scott Stapp. You might remember Scott Stapp from such travesties as anything that Creed ever did.

As you can tell from the lyrics, Scott compensated for his lack of writing ability by listing every baseball word he could think of.

But oh man, if that didn’t get you pumped up, how about a Hype Video for Notre Dame Athletics?

Not that anyone needs another reason to dislike Notre Dame, but I am honor bound to share anything that might reflect poorly on an otherwise excellent academic institution with an unfortunately irritating athletic department.

Dear Notre Dame: this is not cool.  I'm sorry.  It just isn't.

And finally, I touched vaguely on this with the Tro lo lo guy versus the Jimmy Kimmel ‘spoof,’ but here is further proof. Sometimes the original is just funnier than the spoof.

Exhibit A, a video playing on the Insane Clown Posse’s most recent music video from the Saturday Night Live people:

Yeah, okay. Funny. I know what games they are playing. Fine.

Exhibit B, the original:

Favorite parts: "Hot lava," "You can't even hold it... it's just there in the air," "Fuckin' magnets, how do they work?" "Magic everywhere in this bitch."  Come on. 

Keep in mind, with the original they are being as serious as a bunch of white guys dressed in clown makeup can be.

Which is funnier? Exhibit B every time.

I didn't know the SNL was a parody of a real song. That makes me like it a bit less. Mad TV used to do song parodies all the time, and they sucked. At least the ICP song isn't widely known I guess.
