Video: “Tap Three Times”

posted at 4:06 pm on August 31, 2007 by Allahpundit

Inevitable.

Update: MM notes in the comments that this bears the imprimatur of a sacred, magical newsroom. That makes three newspapers in two months venturing into the realm of online video satire.

“… on the stall divider if you want me; twice on floor, if I don’t turn you on. Oh, my Darlin’ [tap, tap, tap] means you’ll want me for some dirty …”

Sigh. Sorry, Tony Orlando and Dawn, I just had to.

Clearly, you’ve got WAAAAY to much free time on your hands.

Happy Friday.

;^)

When you’re the butt of nonstop ridicule for four days now, it’s time to read the writing on the wall.

Time to go back to Pocafello, or wherever it is you live, Larry.

Buh-bye.

Too funny.

I predict this song will replace “YMCA” as the favorite at the ball park.

fogw on August 31, 2007 at 4:12 PM

LOL excellent!

Bradky on August 31, 2007 at 4:17 PM

Larry was for being guilty before he was against being guilty.

I thought it was interesting that the video was produced by a multimedia editor at the Spokane Spokesman-Review and distributed by them on YouTube. There’s a debate among the editors about whether it’s appropriate to have the newspaper’s imprimatur on the vid.

Interesting reading.

Can you imagine if a mainstream newspaper produced and distributed a similar satiritical video about say, Ted Kennedy, or Mel Reynolds, or Barney Frank?

Just saying…

I’m having a 70′s flashback ♥

Catchy! tap, tap, tap, He’s unbuckling his Beltway, it seems so wrong wanting sex in a john,

*OOPS* I mean, uh, this really sucks.

RushBaby on August 31, 2007 at 4:20 PM

actually felt a little sorry for him at the end there.

Really, really good point.

I was surprised they actually considered whether it was appropriate or not, given the chance to mock a Republican, whether he deserves it or not.

If it was done in the context of being the work of a satirist at the paper, it’s borderline OK in my book. Like I said, at least they discussed the matter and asked for input about it, which is more than some of the ivory tower types would do.

“I don’t wanna bj, zj or any kind of…j” – Beerfest

Ochlan on August 31, 2007 at 4:42 PM

Ochlan, good call…apropos of Beerfest: “it looks like a real hot dog cart” up there.

Mike D. on August 31, 2007 at 4:45 PM

“…1 dollar for me to touch it, 2 dollars for you to touch it, 3 dollars for me to touch it while I touch my toes, 4 dollars to touch it while I touch your toes…”

That movie just keeps on givin’ ;-)

Ochlan on August 31, 2007 at 4:49 PM

Love it.

Let this RINO twist in the wind.

Zach on August 31, 2007 at 4:50 PM

Didn’t a Hot Air commenter write almost this exact same parody a couple of days ago? Step up, unknown bard!

Don’t make me snort!

Ha. Ha. Ha.

How long will I have to wait for the video parody of:

John Murtha
William Jefferson
Tony Villaraigosa
Barney Frank
George Michael

And perhaps even more inevitable…check out the LARRY CRAIG TOILET PAPER offered on ebay…

JetBoy on August 31, 2007 at 5:32 PM

First they ruined rainbows for me. Now I can’t “go” to the beat.

sibobr on August 31, 2007 at 5:54 PM

The guy singing sounded so gay

JiangxiDad on August 31, 2007 at 5:57 PM

Nope. Hey, I wonder if Media Matters will cover this.

Michelle on August 31, 2007 at 4:18 PM

No, Michelle, I can’t imagine such a thing happening. That’s why I instead expect one from you and Bryan :>)

Bigfoot on August 31, 2007 at 9:04 PM

Guilty (no no! not guilty) – I loved it. ROFL. ;)

tickleddragon on August 31, 2007 at 11:15 PM

I’m sooo done with the tapping. Just get out of office already…I’m grossed out and you are disgusting in Idaho as a senator.
