"Baby Got Back" as a folk song video



Jonathan Coulton created this folk-songy cover of Sir Mix-a-lot's "Baby Got Back" song. Now, someone has mashed-up the two back together as a video. Brilliant! Surreal! Makes you realize just how silly most popular music is.

From BoingBoing.

UPDATE: Hmm, the Copyright Police struck and this is no longer available on YouTube.

BUTT, I just realized that I've seen Jon Coulton live without realizing it. He was playing guitar at a John Hodgman (PC guy in those Apple commercials) book-signing in Hollywood last year. And, he's featured in a recent The Show with ZeFrank episode.

Uh, most music may be silly, but this does nothing to highlight that fact, because the original wasn't silly at all. It was an affirmation of the black form against the hegemony of pervasive white symbols of beauty. Or if you're feeling less academic: Sir Mix-A-Lot really does like big butts. I should have thought that was obvious.
