You have to have seen it. The McCain Girl’s video has been spread through the internet like a plague. A plague that makes your ears bleed. A plague that makes gouging your eyes with a grapefruit spoon seem like a really, really good idea.
However, if you have been one of the fortunate few who have (mercifully) missed this video, I offer you the chance to make up for that by viewing it now. I suggest you remove small children and people with heart conditions from the room before hitting play.
Now that you’ve thoroughly lost your appetite for the next week or so, let’s talk about the response to this video.
You know, this is the internet, and on the internet, the only truly appropriate responses to this sort of thing are mockery and snarkiness. Oh sure, there were some mean spirited comments. But you have to admit, the video leaves itself open for it. First is the big scary black chick that is trying entirely too hard. Then there’s the old lady who thought wearing a green shirt in front of a green screen was a good idea. And lastly the “sexy young girl” who lip synced the entire time. Poorly.
Now, even the Obama/Guliani girls got a bit of jabbing their way and they were attractive and the girl singing for them could, well, sing. So certainly this messy hodge podge knew to expect some ribbing for their off key, poorly produced bit of schlock. But, apparently, they didn’t. At least that’s the vibe I get from the black chick’s video response stating that she doesn’t care about people’s opinions (which, is kind of ironic because she’s responding to people’s opinions in a manner that shows that she’s obviously irritated…so…it kinda seems like she does care…but maybe that’s just my logic).
See? Doesn’t that just scream “Your responses bothered me”? I can’t be the only one who gets that vibe.
And she says there’s more to come. Which means that she’s ready to be ridiculed more. Good for her, I say. That’s the spirit. Pick yourself up, dust yourself off and all that good stuff. Plus it’ll give me something to laugh at when I’m feeling a bit down. :p
