Can’t read my Al Roker face

Nadya Ginsburg was on The Today Show show bragging about her parody of Lady Gaga‘s Poker Face. Her version, Al Roker Face, talks about how she is in love with Al Roker‘s sweet sweet meteorology swagger. Here’s Meredith Viera describing this video as one of the funniest YouTube videos they have EVER seen. Really, Meredith?…

Weird: The Al Yankovic Story

We here at songspeak are big fans of “Weird Al” Yankovic, and thanks to Best Week Ever and Funny or Die, I came across this gem: “Weird: The Al Yankovic Story” from Aaron Paul If this were a real movie, I’d go see it in a heartbeat. It looks like it could be a real…

Lean On Me withers Brawny paper towels’ absorbtion

For the paper towel company that’s never really had a slogan, Brawny at least has its iconic Brawny Man mascot, a flannel shirted (mustachioed pre-2003) lumberjack who hawks the benefits of super-absorbent paper towels. In its latest tv commercial, the Brawny Man gets all soulful, performing a very special version of the Bill Withers classic,…

A boombox is not a toy

Think I work at CVS? I don’t.

The Jennifer Lopez classic Love Don’t Cost a Thing was on Mix 93.1 earlier today while I was working, and it reminded me of when the song first came out. I’ve always thought she says, “think I work at CVS, I don’t” at one point. I know those aren’t the actual lyrics, though.   In…

Hey! Whazzup, make up! My god! Whazzup?!

Our buddy Joe turned us onto this fantastic interpretation of The Rolling Stones ‘Start Me Up’. This has always been one of those videos that was hard to take seriously anyhow, between Mick Jagger‘s tight v-neck shirt and his chicken-like dance moves. The disco era had a strange effect on the Stones, and this video…

Saturday Nylund Live – Betty White to host SNL!

That’s right, The Golden Girls‘ own Rose Nylund… the incomparable Betty White, is slated to host the May 8th “Mother’s Day episode” of SNL! That this didn’t happen sooner is perhaps life’s biggest mystery. Betty’s self-deprecating humor and quick wit is sure to be a great match for Saturday Night Live, and we’re excited to…
