Online Celebrity – I’m Gonna Miss Her… YOLO!

What? It’s Monday already? Again? And we’re already halfway through March? Whoever happens to be manning that fast forward button better knock that crap off. STAT.

At least music makes Monday better by leaps and bounds. Especially this week, since our own Xmas Dolly has chosen the theme this week of ‘’. So let’s get to it, shall we? Monday needs funny.

Let’s start off with a song that was written back when the was still in infancy (can you remember that? Anyone? Bueller?) The artist and his writers were thinking about how people were getting away with complete false identities, and about how it wasn’t going to be that way forever – they were certainly wrong about that, making this song even more relevant today.

This satire of the world won Video of the Year at the 2008 ACM awards. The video’s director, , plays a geek whilst William Shatner and are his parents. There’s a bit of dialogue where tells Shatner that he can’t sing – which is a rib at his often-mocked singing career. 

Jason Alexander, Estelle Harris, and Patrick Warburton are also alumni from Seinfeld, naturally. “Online” also became the first-ever country to reach #1 on the iTunes video sales charts.

Enjoy a giggle with Brad Paisley and “Online”:

Next up is a song that takes a humorous look on show business and the many problems that current entertainers endure, along with the notion that anyone can be famous as a result of reality television programs.

I love the video, since it begins with a satirization of , called “ Icon”, with William Shatner playing a Simon Cowell-type judge who becomes very critical of the artist during his performance.

The video features various satirizations of reality TV shows, such as a take-off on Fear Factor, where the artist eats a plate of earthworms; a parody of The Bachelor, where Trista Rehn chooses Little Jimmy Dickens over the artist as her match; and a “Brad Paisley Show” where James Belushi makes a cameo appearance.

Fun Fact: The song appears on the game Karaoke Revolution Country. and The Swon Brothers performed this song on the finale of NBC’s The Voice in 2013.

Without further ado, here’s Brad Paisley (again) with “Celebrity”:

Next up I’m still sticking with Brad Paisley, since many of his songs personify ‘funny’. And, of course, he’s my favorite. This next song is about a man whose girl gives him an ultimatum: fishing or her. 

I love that Brad has his future wife, Kimberly Williams star in his video – theirs is a unique love story, Kimberly first caught his eye when he saw the movie “Father of the Bride” in 1991 – when he was on a date.

Four years later, he returned to the theater alone for the sequel and was impressed with Kimberly’s performance as Steve Martin’s daughter. He remembered thinking, “She seems like a great girl – smart and funny and all those things that are so hard to find.” They began dating in 2001 and married in 2003. Williams also makes an appearance in Paisley’s “” music video.

Here’s one for your funny bone – Brad Paisley with “I’m Gonna Miss Her”:

Last, but not least, is a song written and recorded by an American comedy hip hop group. The single premiered in North America on Saturday Night Live on January 26, 2013, and released as a single the following day.

The song was written by the group along with Adam Levine, the song parodies the phrase “” (You Only Live Once) sarcastically (and fair warming – some language is not meant for little ears) drawing the complete opposite meaning. Rolling Stone named it one of the 100 best songs of 2013.

I love that one of the members of the trio happens to be Andy Samberg – some may recognize him from his SNL days, and if you watch Brooklyn Nine-Nine like I do, from that great current comedy series.

Give a listen to The Lonely Island (featuring Adam Levine and Kendrick Lamar) with “YOLO”:

That’s a wrap for this week – have a great week!
