Okay, remedy so I’ve been going on a Soulja Boy binge. On the off chance that you are not up on the Crank Dat Movement (CDM), you will possibly remember Soulja Boy from his Mixtape Show debut right here on this very hip-hop podcast with I Got Me Some Bapes in Episode 62 and Crank Dat Soulja Boy in Episode 78 – both of them part of the Bounce Tape series (#4 probably coming soon).
Anyway, things are really getting ridiculous with this dude. I mean, come on.
That’s not lens flare, that’s whiteout.
On his glasses.
He put whiteout on his sunglasses. You know, on purpose. To simulate a reflection of snow, or something. I don’t really know. And yes, those are rubber bands. Anyway, somehow this kid has become the hottest thing on the internets, which I am not really mad at.
The music videos that these ridiculous-ass songs have inspired, however are really just next-level insane. Check after the jump to see what I’m talm bout.
First, let’s start with this gem:
Crank Dat Instructional. Note that he says “instructional DVD” in the intro. This means that somewhere out there, somebody paid money for this.
Crank Dat Folger Boy. I’m just waiting until the Folgers ad execs pick up this and decide to have Soulja Boy shill for their coffee – Nigo’s apparently not taking the bait.
Crank Dat Winnie the Pooh. I think Rabbit is probably the best dancer out of the group.
Crank Dat Army Boy. If you don’t watch the other ones, watch this – at least until 1:15. The Bapes line in here is pretty brilliant.
Crank Dat Barney Boy. This isn’t quite as well thought out as some others, but the concept is brilliant. In other news, somewhere, a 20 year old Asian kid is crying softly into a blanket.
Crank Dat Jesus Christ What Is That – the logical extension of the CDM.
Feel free to post more in the comments. Otherwise, try not to get caught fired watching this shit at work.
