All right. It's my job to know these things. Much like Hollywood saw the South Park video Christmas Card a year before everybody else*, this very, very funny and very disturbing viral video dropped onto my laptop about a month ago as it first made the rounds ...
... a video in which two young rappers extol the virtues of GILF. Yeah, that's right. They're rollin' Vintage Honey Style.
What's weird is, it's now on the web running parallel to the publicity for this weekend's Fox release Grandma's Boy. There's a MySpace for the band, called GrandmazBoys, and the url for the band's video is www.grandmazboy.com
So either the lads who made it hijacked the parallel name, and are therefore not just funny film-makers but more clever than I am by half, or Fox grabbed the video and then instead of making it an Easter Egg at the movie's site, buried it at a url which no one actually has any reason to type. Which is both insanely hip and smart and not particularly bright all at the same time. I'm going to contact the people who made it and find out which, and will report back.
In the meantime, it makes an excellent one-two punch with Chronic of Narnia to help prove that a couple funny guys who know how to write and shoot will out-funny the big studios every time.
* another reason to hate George Clooney, by the way. Not only is he handsome, intelligent, politically active, can write and direct like a motherfucker, the original South Park was his video Christmas card. We even owe him South Park.
