Fat Kid Singing Lady Gaga, Apple to Kill Ticketmaster, and More Things that Were Awesome Today

These things made me smile today:

1. Kid singing “Bad Romance” by Lady Gaga

Everyone loves overweight white kids named Timmy wearing Mickey Mouse pajamas in his kitchen sharply snapping along the beat to an a capella version of “Bad Romance”. Oh and did I mention he’s singing into a ripened banana?

The best part? Around 3:10 when Timmy starts stomping in rhythm with the song as he chants “Walk, walk fashion baby/Work it/Move that bitch crazy.” You go girl-er-boyfriend!

Casablancas and Samberg Bring “Boombox” to Life on SNL

If you follow me on Facebook / Twitter, you probably noticed how I totally freaked out last night when absentmindedly watching SNL with host Jude Law.

(This was after my earlier freak out in the evening when I saw actor (and celebrity blogger) Michael Kenneth Williams — aka “Omar Little” from The Wire — playing a would-be terrorist on Law & Order.)

The reason was Julian Casablancas induced — as soon as I heard the begining beats of “Boombox,” the song which Julian guested on for the Lonely Island album, Incredibad, I knew what was coming — hilarity and awesomeness.

Not only were all the scenes described in the song acted out, but Julian is sporting this hideously weird side rat tail hair with the multicolors — but staying on trend and totally making it work. I’m convinced, Julian Casablancas owns neo-80s style. But probably my favorite moment is at the end when Julian smashes a flower pot and declares that “a boombox is not a toy.” [UPDATE: Reader Melissa pointed out that there is actually a “Boombox” shirt being sold on the Lonely Island site. Rock it!]

So true.

Check out the video and you will not be disappointed:

Oh, and in other news, The Strokes will headline Lollapalooza.
