Important reminder: Hot girls have problems too

posted at 9:13 pm on April 17, 2012 by Allahpundit

Via BuzzFeed, HuffPo, Gawker, and various other blogs and Tumblrs, I’m thinking this will reach 10 million views on YouTube by, oh, say, noon on Thursday. How bad is it? Bad enough that the producers felt obliged to issue a disclaimer:

Old Bailey Productions did not create any of the audio or lyrics for this video. We produced the video as a favor for a younger sibling of one of our friends.

People are comparing them to Rebecca Black but “Friday” was an earnest if painful attempt at homemade tween pop. This is more a case of kidding on the square — I think. It almost seems designed to go viral: Two rich girls in the Hilton/Kardashian mold (they’re in a limo, no?) singing an impossibly dumb song about how hot they are? Pure magic. I’m surprised Paris and Kim didn’t think of it first.

Prepare yourselves, my friends. What has been heard cannot be unheard.

Allah, my friend, how have you not covered this yet?

amerpundit on April 17, 2012 at 9:15 PM

Airheads!

If you’ve got it… flaunt it!

I will repeat AP in BOLD…

Electrongod on April 17, 2012 at 9:19 PM

Have these two been talking to Samantha Brick?

stukinIL4now on April 17, 2012 at 9:19 PM

30 seconds……or less…
That was 30 seconds that I will never get back…

Electrongod on April 17, 2012 at 9:21 PM

Allah, my friend, how have you not covered this yet?

amerpundit on April 17, 2012 at 9:15 PM

Because Allahpundit is afraid Obama will send his goon after him for telling people Obama eats dogs. (Hey, give AP a break, he is after all just a Betamale)…

SWalker on April 17, 2012 at 9:21 PM

Rebecca Black is insulted by the comparison.

Also, they aren’t particularly hot. They’re like ordinary big-fish-in-a-little-pond hot, not internet hot.

So in other words, why am I watching this?

Nessuno on April 17, 2012 at 9:22 PM

Couldn’t get past the 0:36 mark… If it got better after that, I just don’t care.

Fallon on April 17, 2012 at 9:22 PM

ahhh i think my ears are bleeding from this , this, this thing they call music

sadsushi on April 17, 2012 at 9:22 PM

For supposedly hot girls, they’ve failed to provide sufficient visual evidence.

They’re only slightly above average I tell you!

Stoic Patriot on April 17, 2012 at 9:22 PM

Funny clip, good job but they are a dime a dozen type teenage girls.

Just watch house hunters or any other show these days. Virtually every American woman that gets on TV thinks they are “hot” or a “princess”. Too much being told you are so special over the years.

arnold ziffel on April 17, 2012 at 9:23 PM

I guess this crap is more important than what Kent Conrad pulled today on the budget.

Mark1971 on April 17, 2012 at 9:23 PM

Couldn’t get past the 0:36 mark… If it got better after that, I just don’t care.

So it still sucked 6 seconds after I killed it…

They told him it was wag-yu.

Christien on April 17, 2012 at 9:23 PM

They’re cute as speckled pups but, like other terrible singers nowadays, they need autotune–STAT!

Ladysmith CulchaVulcha on April 17, 2012 at 9:24 PM

So in other words, why am I watching this?

Nessuno on April 17, 2012 at 9:22 PM

Because Allahpundit is out of beer and needed to keep everyone occupied while he made a quick beer run…

SWalker on April 17, 2012 at 9:24 PM

I made it to the 1:43 mark. That should at least be worth a Peace Prize.

Kataklysmic on April 17, 2012 at 9:24 PM

They are hot?

Yeah, instead we get this crap.
Oh well, good thread to post your favorite obama dog jokes.

No wonder we are so indebted to China. Dog meat ain’t cheap.

Finally, someone who understands my problems!

NotCoach on April 17, 2012 at 9:26 PM

I wouldn’t know about the problems hot girls have-however, I could write a 2000+ page federal bill on the problems weird girls have.

annoyinglittletwerp on April 17, 2012 at 9:26 PM

Two rich girls in the Hilton/Kardashian mold (they’re in a limo, no?) singing an impossibly dumb song about how hot they are?

You said singing. Where was that in this video?

Paris and Kim could have pulled this off. These two tramps- not so much.

Happy Nomad on April 17, 2012 at 9:26 PM

So when are we gonna talk about the Secret Service investigating the ‘Nuge? (No, “‘Nuge” isn’t Colombian slang for strange, I mean Ted Nugent)

I messed up the quote thing, i got a peace prize!

sadsushi on April 17, 2012 at 9:29 PM

Paris Hilton DID already do this….

enjoy! Let the debate begin

tylercralle on April 17, 2012 at 9:29 PM

Happy Nomad on April 17, 2012 at 9:26 PM

lol. We need tramps. Not everyone is wife material. :)

arnold ziffel on April 17, 2012 at 9:29 PM

Ladysmith CulchaVulcha on April 17, 2012 at 9:24 PM

One of these days I’m gonna let y’all hear(notice I said ‘hear’ rather than ‘see’) ME sing. I may not be ‘hawt’-but my somewhat trained voice certainly doesn’t require ‘autotuning’.

annoyinglittletwerp on April 17, 2012 at 9:30 PM

Important reminder: Hot girls have problems too

Except that the girls in this video are not hot.

UltimateBob on April 17, 2012 at 9:30 PM

Um… it was pretty much the same from beginning to end. Why this would “go viral” is beyond my ken.

Happy Nomad on April 17, 2012 at 9:31 PM

UltimateBob on April 17, 2012 at 9:30 PM

I have even more respect for Ann Romney after watching this video.

Electrongod on April 17, 2012 at 9:32 PM

Really ?

Bmore on April 17, 2012 at 9:33 PM

What? I liked it.

Greek Fire on April 17, 2012 at 9:34 PM

I think a stronger disclaimer might be in order for this one. Is it really fair now to have an insipid chorus of “hot girls are just like you (except their hot)” sung by two not so hot girls jangling through my brain now?

Ladysmith CulchaVulcha on April 17, 2012 at 9:39 PM

Oh good gracious. My ears, my ears! Who knew “hot girls” preferred atonal music.

Happy Nomad on April 17, 2012 at 9:31 PM

Right? They look like a couple of 14 year olds trying to act sexy and grown up. Not into that at all.

amerpundit on April 17, 2012 at 9:15 PM

Thank you for this. I post behind enemy lines over at HuffPo. The next time I see another Romney/dog article there I’ll be beating the libs over the head with it.

trish333 on April 17, 2012 at 9:44 PM

Okay they aren’t singing, they’re just talking, badly.

AND I would argue that they are not hot. Maybe average. Putting on make-up and spending $65 to have hair colored does not a hot woman make.

WeekendAtBernankes on April 17, 2012 at 9:45 PM

I can’t decide if this is bullying or part of the GOP’s continuing war on women.

Don’t get me wrong – I’d hit it – but I don’t know if they are at the stature where they should be considering themselves hot.

Another side-effect of the “everybody is special” mindset kids are taught today. The only way it’s true is if someone re-edits the video to have the limo roll, crash and burn. Then they’re ‘hot’.

This is a good place to start, though:

the German term Fremdschämen— ‘external shame’ or ‘vicarious embarrassment’, being vicariously embarrassed by someone else
