Damn if I didn’t have all these grandiose plans for a witty post about soy sauce today, but then I saw this post on Ukulele Hunt and all my plans when to shit.
Seriously, it’s like magical fairies drank a box of Franzia then decided to concoct the most perfect thing in the entire world just for me. I swear I’m not exaggerating. What happens when you combine kazoos, recorders, adorable accents, ukuleles AND Justin Timberlake? This is probably the best video ever made in the history of all time – EVER. Brace yourself, Interwebz…
I know!!! They’re freaky and they know it, right? I’m still breathing heavy myself. In fact, I might need a moment here to watch that another forty-seven times.
The only thing that could possibly make it better would be a unicorn. Well, sitting here watching it with honest to goodness JT might make it a little better. Then again, I haven’t showered yet so it’s probably for the best he’s not here. (Just in case you’re in dire need of some uke-icorn action try this one.)
Only after I’ve spent twenty minutes blathering on about how magic this tailor-made video is do I realize that it’s having been tailor made (by fairies! and tiny giraffes!) for me by definition pretty much guarantees it doesn’t really fit anyone else. So no one can possibly love this video as much as I love this video. Which means you’re all bored to tears and scratching your head wondering why I’m so in love with this video.
So maybe I should go ahead and tell you my soy sauce story. Though after 250 words of buildup it really can’t possibly live up to your expectations. Then again, after billing that video as the best thing since vibrator manufacturers switched to AA batteries, you’re expectations are probably pretty damn low at this point. Worst case I’ll just hammer another nail into the coffin we’ll affectionately call “I Don’t Get This Chick’s Sense of Humor.”
I’ll try and keep it short. There’s this thing called Freecycle where you can post things you don’t want anymore and snag things that other people no longer need. For example, when we put the house on the market (twice) I posted a printer and some furniture on Freecycle and within hours, people came and carted them away!
I get an email from them everyday with the latest listings…like this one. I’m thinking about reserving myself a u-haul so I can carry away all the spoils.
Oh man, that video IS great! Wow. Adding to my list of unconventional musicians, right next to Reggie Watts.
I can’t help but notice the trend where young dorky looking guys are getting really popular. Of course this would happen when I’m months from 30. No justice in this world.
That video made my panties moist 😛 I want those two to preform at my next birthday!!!
Thank God I didn’t post my true reaction, or we’d have had the exact same post.
Dude…..you wear panties?!?
I didn’t say I was wearing them, I just said they got wet. Read into that what you will.
It is never a good thing to encourage my imagination.
Do you two need me to close the comments so you guys can have a moment alone?
Are you kidding? He scares me!!! Do you KNOW what this guy can do with a Tuba?
Ooops sorry 🙁 It appears we did kind of hijack your blog. We’ll be good now.
Don’t you dare! I like vibrating tubas and water beds at least as much as the next girl. Unless that next girl is you. Then I’m probably woefully behind.
Ok folks and we’re back live in 3, 2, 1 ….
Tuba lube. Ok, I’m spent.
Oh well, there’s always tomorrow 🙂
I’m back, let’s go.
*frantically runs around collecting any and all fragile things*
Bring it on my friend, bring it on!!
Alright, where do I put the batteries? Wait, that’s ridiculous. I just found the cord. I’ll be right with you.
That better not be a video camera!!!
This? No, this isn’t a camera. With all the vibration, you’d never get a decent video. Of course, without the vibration, I’m not sure it’d be “decent” anyway. Rrowr.
I used to play the tuba……
Well played, Bob. Twenty points to you.
I no longer understand why I spend time practicing the piano. Seriously, what have I been doing with my life?
Well if you can play Scott Joplin it’s totally worth it. You CAN play Joplin, right?
Is now the time to mention that I play the recorder?
What happens at band camp should be shared with us immediately.
Doesn’t “Soy Sauce” mean “I am sauce”? Is this connected somehow with Tuba lube?
Si. Es verdad. Good point…
I have no idea how any of this is connected anymore. Oh, apparently it’s corded.
OK, that’s cool. Does Justin Timberlake play the tuba? Because I think he would TOTALLY ROCK the TUBA! (With or without Tuba lube)
Dear God I hope so.
But not like this. Yipes.
Can we make out again?
I hadn’t realized we’d stopped. Who’s this guy?
Is everybody making out while I am at work? Damnit!!! I miss everything! Tuba Lube is clearly the greatest thing evah! Except JT! And KY. And KYA. And Tom. Really, Tuba Lube is falling pretty low on the list!
If Tuba Lube is falling down, you may need to reapply.
Are you losing your upright?
I never had it, but I bet I could get one if you pull a few favors.
You’d be surprised what people will want, simply because it’s cheap/free. Like the time I had a yard sale and put a bunch of lacy panties out on the table. Yes, pre-worn (washed, or course). I hate lacy panties and was never going to wear them. My sister came over to help out and was all, “Like ANYONE is going to want THESE” and then, sure enough, two women, NOT my size, came along and bought those panties. They must love wedgies.
THATS not a guy. That’s a Muppet!
Doesn’t getting Muppet fur in your mouth drive you crazy?
Umm… not like I know what that tastes like or anything…
Trying to catch up on my blog reading, but am now totally stuck on this. And just when I thought it couldn’t get any better there was the keyboard guitar. Be still my 80s heart. You just made my day 🙂
I want to bottle him up and put him in my favorite Trapper Keeper.
Tubas, Kazoos & lube.
That’s a decent band name.
I like this trend. That’s just respond with HARLOT! to everything that people around you say.
(not a duplicate comment)
Ok. it’s time for me to actually post a comment. That video was frickin brilliant man. I had a shit day and now it just got WAY better. The only thing better is if YOU were doing the UKE playing. Cheers love!
Yay! *frantically waves* Hi! We’re so glad you came out to play. Just don’t step in the tuba luba.
Ok, that was incredible! What was that pronged instrument? Never see that one before.
I love talented men and I’d so do these guys! You know what makes me want them more? the awkwardness at the end. Brilliant!
I think it’s called a Kalimba… I may be wrong though.
I always just called them thumb pianos. Kalimba sounds way cooler.
OHMAHGOSH. that was FANTASTICAL! i need to change my pants now… i may have piddled a little from the excitement.
my life is forever changed by that video.
*clicks play for the 100th time*
MORE COW BELL!!!!
Seriously. I love it when he says “luv.”
the accents melt my cold dead heart.
I’m fucking pissed I missed it all.
Seriously laughing my pants off right now…
Um…also did you know that I have an entire collection of percussion instruments…shaker eggs, cowbells tambourines etc. I did sell my conga drums but we could totally do something with my shaker eggs.
You let me know sweetheart and don’t everthing that your humor is lost on me….I see you.
And if you need more elipses I have a stockpile in my pocket.
That was supposed to say ever think… (oops there they are again) not everthing. Which makes no sense at all.
you had me at franzia. and magical fairies. but i’m pissed i missed all this fun yesterday too.
you had me at franzia. obviously. and magical fairies.
Looks like I had you twice. Bah dum bum.
Put this on a wedding and play over and over….
you dont need anything else!!
Well you still need the open bar. All weddings MUST have an open bar.
I just realized this: We need more single readers for your blog! This way there is a higher chance of us being able to crash a wedding in the near future!
Now there’s a plan I would love to support!!
ok, I am in!
Mark me down for 3 and I’ll bring a tuba.
I guess that leaves me with bringing the lube.
It wouldn’t be a party without you.
I thought you would have said without ‘lube’
I thought you had the lube. Dammit, I brought all the extension cords, it’s gonna be a rough party without the tuba lube.
Three single ladies?
Um, yes please. All the single ladies, c’mon put your hands up.
Would you like to rethink your request for hand locations?
Good catch. Hands down. Way down.
It’s like that one time I posted on eBay the jars of Taco Bell sauces that I have collected. I even separated them in to separate jars! And don’t mock the soy sauce posting: You can never have too much soy sauce. I got my nice tan from generations of soy sauce imbibing. Now please let me know if there is a posting for Arby’s Sauces. Srly. We go nuts in our house for them!
I don’t understand Arby’s. Who can possibly like Roast Beef that much?
Tell me you sold these and made some money!
I don’t know why I was surprised when I read this. I shouldn’t have been. Harlot.
Somehow I failed to mention I used to play the trombone. True story.
This band is gonna ROCK.
Holy Hell, 74 comments. Wow!!! He’s hot. I want to be his groupie.
Yeah, we had a bit of a mutiny. I’m still a little sore. Also, I liked it.
Sore? Needed more tuba lube.
