Your Turn

OK, this week, I would love to see from all of you, the best viral videos you have seen all week or month or year. Whatever. Just make it good and lots of fun to watch.
I picked the Mariah Carey one from this morning because it is fun to watch her kind of lose it. If someone wants to post her meltdown on MTV that would be interesting.

As far as events, I really liked the way that Katy Perry one worked out, and I want to get people from other cities involved. So, if you want to see Landon Pigg and live in one of these cities, let me know. I think you can probably bring one guest so you don't have to go alone.

04/29 - Austin, TX - The Stubbs (small room)
05/01 - West Palm Beach, FL - Sunfest
05/05 - Chicago, IL - Schubas
05/06 - New York, NY - The Living Room
05/08 - Alexandria, VA - The Birchmere
05/09 - Philadelphia, PA - Tin Angel
06/11 - Boston, MA - Club Passim

If you want to see Tina Dico, and you live in one of these cities, let me know.

May 5 Joe's Pub New York, New York
May 6 Schubas Chicago, Illinois
May 7 The Khyber Philadelphia, PA
May 8 Ram's Head Tavern Annapolis, MD
May 9 La Sala Rossa Montreal, Quebec
May 10 Le Cercle Quebec City, Quebec
May 12 The Courthouse Toronto, Ontario
May 13 The Ark Ann Arbor, Michigan
May 15 Hotel Cafe Los Angeles, California

This requires you to write and take photos and not flake.

Eh? I don't get the Mariah video...looked like she was on GMA just singing her song.

Harriet Hellfire said...

What exactly constitutes a "viral" video?

Trix said...

Soo...does it count as viral if its actually super popular, or if you just think its hilarious...? I'll post some when I think of 'em.

EL send something my way in Seattle, please, I'll make good.

at about the 3:00 part she begins looking back and sings for someone to "quit singing her lines". Perez says she's lypsinching,but I'm not sure. I can't see the back up singers, but maybe they were singing her part and she got hacked.

lyz said...

She starts looking back at the 2:55 mark...

Trix said...

Alright, some of my favorite videos from the past few months:

"STOP SINGING MY PART NOW BABY"

Mariah Carey performed on Good Morning America this morning, where her backup track was a mess - but that isn't the best part of the story. It seems that Mimi's backup singer is tired of being in Mimi's shadow. Because, about 3 minutes into the performance the backup singer started singing Mimi's part! So Mimi stopped, mid-song, and said "stop singing my part now baby". And then sang on like a true pro. Look forward to seeing a new backup singer for her next performance!

sauvage said...

I waited for the "meltdown" for the entire 4 minutes and 17 seconds and instead I just had to listen to over four minutes of really bad music! I feel slightly betrayed.

Moonmaid said...

Just to be picky, the club in Austin is called "Stubbs" - just Stubbs, not "The Stubbs", which sounds pretty funny.

operaghost said...

Probably not funny, per se, but this one fascinated me . . . and it convinced me that someone has way too much time on their hands.
