I probably shouldn’t admit this, but I’m a Mippey 5 fan. Luke Thompson, the gangly Minnesota YouTube sensation, makes beverages come out of my nose kind of like “Weird Al” Yankovic did when I was — um — two.
Thompson’s probably never even heard of Yankovic, but they are like-minded, creative masters of self and pop culture-deprecation with lots of time on their hands. Yet, Mippey 5 can crank out a music video in the time it takes me to make a blog entry. Impressive.
Recently the Mippey 5 gangstahs caused quite a scandal in the hood while taping the Harlem Shake.
Those Fridley kids are so wild.
Anyway, I have a request concerning Adele’s “Rumour Has It”. I know — it’s an overplayed tune and there’s no rapping. But envision a parody called “Lederhosen“. You could start a new trend, Luke. And, seems to me “lederhosen” offers just the right amount of syllables, some great video possibilities, and plenty of room for Minnesota cheese.
