Posted on 12/31/2012 8:18:57 PM PST by JouleZ
U.S. Troops in Afghanistan respond to a video made by the Miami Dolphin Cheerleaders of the "Call Me Maybe" video. It made me laugh and I had never heard the song before...enjoy and Happy New Year!
You’ve never heard this song before? Do you live in a salt mine 10,000 ft. below the surface?
Not all of us are pop culture idiots.
That’s not what I meant. Seriously, If you haven’t heard this song in a bank, gas station, restaurant, store, etc., you’re not paying attention.
A little funny..but honestly..a bit demeaning for such courageous men to be dancing around like sexy women.
But...even I have heard this song. My theory on people who have no idea of this song...or "that" reference: They are the same people who live in such a small bubble that BHO getting re-elected shocked them...and they are the ones who are shocked when this or that happens.
They have no idea what its like out there. Ignorance is truly bliss.
A lot of us don’t pay attention to this stuff
You could say I spend too much time on FR.
I did see a parody of the song on the internet called “Call me Batman”
Here is a video that the marching band at my school did: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eiZTPVcRixQ
There are cheerleaders in the video???
Some background might be helpful...
The Dolphin Cheerleader’s version of this song is the most viewed video of the hundreds of “Call Me’s” already posted on You Tube.
15.4 million views just on the original, and millions more on copies and spoofs and edited copies.
Almost every young man in America has watched or heard about the Cheerleader’s version.
Trust me - these Afghan troops have just become instant cult heroes.
Anyone know what unit this might be?
That was brilliant, and interesting on so many levels.
I am reminded of a conversation I had with a woman I was dating in the late 90s. She had just finished offering some comment about Ricky Martin. I said, “Who’s Ricky Martin?” She immediately launches into a tirade: “OMG! You don’t know who Ricky Martin is? Oprah says that if you don’t know who Ricky Martin is, you just don’t have a life!” I looked at her and said, “Who’s Oprah?”
Bump for later
Knowing all the celebutard gossip is “a life”?
Watching TV substitutes for real life now?
Were those mop heads our fine fighting military troops were using for pom poms? I kinda liked the video. :-)
there’s a fun HEY YA song on youtube done by VAW-116 hawkeye squadron THE SUN KINGS.
I love this!!!!! Thank you for posting - I don’t know how I missed it.
Excellent observation. I noticed a long time ago that there are a lot of posters on this forum like that.
They proudly proclaim that they haven't watched television or seen a movie since the 1970s (or 80s, or the last 15 yrs, whatever).
There are perfectly sound, logicsl reasons for a conservative to have tuned out certain aspects of pop culture. For me, music isn’t one of those aspects.
I do love music and a wide variety of it, but I detest sappy dance acts made marginally palatable with heavy use of autotune. The song in question is pleasant enough for that sort of music, and is all but unavoidable if you’re out in public much at all, but I honestly couldn’t tell you which dancer with a bluetooth mic on her head lipsynced it while jumping around and shaking her rear, lol.
I’ve got news for you pal....the vast majority of people older than fifty most likely don’t know any popular songs created in the last ten-twenty years. And they probably could recognize only a very tiny percent of today’s entertainers: singers, musicians, actors, comedians, etal. Like the poster you’re amazed at because he hasn’t heard that song you’re talking about, I’ve never heard of it either.
No, in fact it's an amazingly ignorant observation. I would bet a lot of money any person who is a regular on FR obviously knows a lot about what's going on in the country politically.
I'm reminded of a W.F. Buckley (you do know who he was, don't you?) article from forty years ago when he recounted a conversation he had with a grandkid. The grandkid was babbling about Elton John being a great musician. Buckley then asked his grandkid who Elton John was. I had Elton John records, but I think Buckley knew a little more about what was going on in the country than I did.
I’ve never heard the song — never heard of it.
“I am reminded of a conversation I had with a woman I was dating in the late 90s.”
I’m reminded of a guy I was dating back in the mid ‘90s. Younger. Much younger. One day he announced that he had just heard a great song on the radio by a “new group” — Three Dog Night. I moved on.
Invite them to a game of touch football.
Love how the weapons are feature throughout!
yeah, the troops win!!
I second that notion. Never heard of it and the same with music today
Yup, I fit that description. I do watch tv though.
That was around the same time that ‘new’ group Santana came out with that song “Smooth”.
“Watching TV substitutes for real life now?”
Of course. They even have TV shows about TV shows.
“.the vast majority of people older than fifty most likely dont know any popular songs created in the last ten-twenty years. And they probably could recognize only a very tiny percent of todays entertainers: singers, musicians, actors, comedians, etal.”
Nine times out of ten when standing in the check out line at the grocery I have no clue who are the celebratard faces gracing People mag and other gossip rags.
“Seriously, If you havent heard this song in a bank, gas station, restaurant, store, etc., youre not paying attention.”
Nope. But I have selective hearing and tune out crap all the time.
Which sorta’ explains Bronco Bama’s election. No one is paying attention to the people who are not paying attention.
Youve never heard this song before? Do you live in a salt mine 10,000 ft. below the surface?
No, I’m above ground. The only radio I listen to is talk radio on occasion. IF I listen to music it’s C&W not Pop/HipHop or whatever you call it. I shop online so no mall Muzak, either. In fact, I haven’t been to a mall in about 10 years.
I watch FOX news, Tweet and read FR and a daily newspaper for my info so I am not in a “bubble” about current events. BTW, the last song I liked this much was titled “Bubbly” by Colbie Caillat. That was about 5 years ago. I’m picky, I guess.
There are cheerleaders in the video???
That’s what I said! Love the troops letting off some steam. They deserve it.
