First there was Pardon Me, and now there is THIS

You all remember Pardon Me. Of course you do. Well now there’s a new contender in town…

May I suggest the pink trousers ‘incident’ as one of the high/low lights. What are yours? Please limit them to 200.

Well found, @danco.

  • Best part: ♫ And stay with in the time… ::awkward beat and pitch shift:: …frame ♫

  • The backup singing at 2:34

  • Eric Fell

    Oh, thank goodness. The uploader had removed this from Youtube. I’m so glad it’s been saved for future generations.

  • It’s not as charming as Pardon Me. Close though.

  • It’s Shania Twain’s mum.

  • Steven

    Ha!! So bad it’s ……… bloody awful, actually. Pink trousers incident a definite highlight, along with the incredible ‘harmonies’ around the 2:35 mark. The Bee Gees on helium would be proud.


  • Scousernorm


    What about those harmonies? I mean

  • I think the rule exists because, after 3 seconds, your retinas explode for your own safety.

    Oh.. I just got to the harmonies.


  • #188. A sign was made for this – which probably cost as much as it does to save a life in the third world

  • #187. The name Khoi Pham

  • #186. The fact that I did not have any rules like that in school…

  • #185. The producer does not have a surname

  • #185. the harmonies

  • M_keat

    Did it actually blur out a little too early at the end, or we’re my optical nerves actively rebelling?

  • #184. The permission a school has given to allow this to exist

  • #184. The writing on the chalk board which explains the way…

  • #183. The inability to hold a note – even though it sounds like it has been auto tuned?

  • #183. The feeling that the camera operator has been lassoed to that bit of rope 

  • #182. ‘Rules mean you only look but you cannot touch’ – no they don’t… 

  • #181. The headless version of the singer watching her from the corner

  • #180. Even if you look away after three seconds – she is still audible…

  • That’s one hell of a clambasket she’s got there.

  • Richard

    I especially liked the line: ‘within the time frame’. So . . . musical. 

  • Good to know Rebecca Black is inspiring grandmothers to follow in her footsteps.

  • Dr. Tit Ghost

    Hi Mr. Popper – Is there a new link, or even tell us the artist and song? The embed doesn’t work…

  • Guest

    Says the video can’t be embedded, and it doesn’t seem to redirect me to watch the video on vimeo. Could you give a direct link?

  • Chad B

    Coincidentally, the proposed name of her upcoming tour is “The Pink Trousers Incident.”

  • Streaksy

    I could only look at her for three seconds, so she’s on to summit.

    Please tell me I’m fun…

  • Michael Feaux

    The bit where all the blokes are in line facing away from the camera and it looks like they’re all weeing and then they spin round.  I ducked.

  • Her voice.  That sing/talking voice is the stuff nightmares are made of!!  She reminds me of someone’s sleazy aunt, who grabs your ass when she hugs you at holidays!

    Her voice, sense of pitch, backing vocals, drum machine and eye makeup. At 1:05, are the men peeing?

  • Nick

    I can’t believe how things like this happen.  Someone had to agree to record not only the music, but also the video.  At least with pardon me she was on a bluescreen, but think about all the people involved in this, lol…  BTW Robert, this might tickle your funny bone:

  • Aaron
  • carlfromsweden

    I want to live according to that three second rule.

  • carlfromsweden

    I want to join her harem of fat cowboys and live according to that three second rule. It’ll be my guide, my spirit through life.
