I am embarrassed to admit that I spent at least an hour watching and re-watching this silly (but very entertaining) YouTube video series: Epic Rap Battles of History.
I don’t listen to rap music. I can’t name a single rap song. Wait–Eminem–“Lose Yourself”–does that count…? That’s rap, right…? However, I am a major history buff, and these videos appeal to that. The songwriters are talented and the actors are pretty funny. And I love the voice narrator who says “Epic Rap Battles of History!” It’s so ridiculous! But comical! Yeah, I laughed. I laughed and laughed.
Here’s the dork fest at Margo Manor today:
Albert Einstein vs. Stephen Hawking. WTF…? I love both of them, and the Carl Sagan mention cracked me up. I think Stephen Hawking wins this one.
Next: Justin Bieber vs. Ludwig van Beethoven. You know that I’m a huge Beethoven fan; I couldn’t resist this one. Haahaha, Bieber asks “Who listens to Classical anyway?” And Beethoven says, “I’m glad I’m deaf so that I don’t have to listen to (Bieber’s song).”
I was totally rooting for Beethoven, but I think Bieber won.
I am usually intolerant of Nazi imagery in comedy or satire, or even most fiction, because I know how horrifying their regime was. It was evil, truly evil, and you know I almost never use that word.
This is too goofy to take offense at.
I’m on the fence with this one. Hilter’s more witty (“Light Saber? You need a Life Saver!”), but Darth Vader has better delivery:
