I made this video a few years back and the song years before that. It’s been on YouTube for a while, slowly gaining viewers without quite cracking that viral threshold.
Obviously, the whole thing revolves around 50 Cent and j-pop mashed together. In particular, schoolgirl pop, Morning Musume. This holds predominantly true for the video. The song, in addition to containing Morning Musume and Shiina Ringo samples, additionally borrows from Weezer and Wilco covering Steely Dan.
My favorite thing about this video is that Universal Music saw it and had deliberations as to whether or not it would be taken down. In the end, they let me keep it up. Thanks, Universal Music!
If you’d like the track by itself to put on your ipod or whatever, here you go…
