I guess MC Vikram and Ludakrishna arenâ€™t the only dynamic desi duo doing creative reinterpretations of hip-hop:
I canâ€™t get over their names, Pari and Harvin…sorry, allow me to be accurateâ€”I canâ€™t get over ONE of their names, because I always thought it was a very bad word in Malayalam.
Random Uncle: Molay, what did you get for Christmas?
Three-year old me: Pari!
Random Uncle: *thud* (falls over in horror)
My dad: Sheâ€™s so funny!
Beyond that, I must say that I was somewhat impressed with the quality of the video (though Iâ€™m rarely on YouTube, so Iâ€™m sure all the youths of today have ridonkulous video editing skillz of which I am unaware).
Once the backup dancers started..um…cranking…or light bulb-changing specifically, I was surprised at the level of thought put in to this lunacy. Backup dancers! It must have been fun to walk by all THAT. Where’s the “Making the Video” for this, complete with confused non-desis watching on the street corner?
Anyway, itâ€™s Friday and weâ€™re (read: Iâ€™m) stressed, so a bit of light-hearted spoofery seems apposite. It was cute enough that Iâ€™m willing to forgive Harvin (whom I assume put it on the News tab) for bringing this wee bit of awareness of Soulja Boy in to my world; I was proud of the fact that I had never heard â€œCrank Datâ€, but for you excessively mustachioed kids, Iâ€™ll make this very good exception. Oh, who am I kidding. My motive for posting this was zimbleâ€”after you watch, I will not be the only one who has the words I used for my title STUCK IN THEIR HEAD all day.
