PARODY VIDEO: The Car Guard Song (Eminem feat. Rihanna)

THE boys who brought us Braaiday - Rebecca Black parody, are back with a new, uniquely South African gem of a video. The creative videographers have released “The Car Guard Song” - a story-driven tale about the plight of the South African car guard.

Now, granted that not all South African car guards are as dedicated to looking after our four-wheeled friends as our hero in this video; The Car Guard Song has a lot to do with presumptions, attitudes and about giving a little more.

In a country where car-related atrocities are regularly committed, the car guard has become an important position in our society. The car guard industry is also a major employer of people who have made some wrong turns in life – such as ex-drug addicts and convicts.

If anyone feels offended by this production please at least state why you feel so. There is no doubt that some will somehow see this song as racist or offensive but you need to justify why you feel so. Just saying “I'm offended” or “this is racist” really isn't bringing anything to the table.

For those of you who appreciate great production values, good song lyrics and the relevance of such videos, sit back and enjoy the following Car Guard Song brought to you by Derek Watts and the Sunday Blues!

Here's the splurb from YouTube:

Derick Watts & The Sunday Blues are back with another typically South African-themed parody video. The "Braaiday" creators turn their attention to car guards, and give you a glimpse into a previously unseen world - one where anything can happen whilst you are away from your beloved vehicle.

Featuring a cameo or two from several well-known faces, this video will make you laugh, cry and reach for a R5 coin all at the same time! You'll never look at the brave men and women who put themselves on the line to protect your car in the same way again.

And if you haven't seen the Braaiday video yet, this is a must-see!

UPDATE: The creators of The Car Guard Song will be interviewed on the Expresso Morning Show on SABC 3 tomorrow morning at 6:20am. I'll post the clip here once/if it becomes available on YouTube!

BRAAIDAY VIDEO: Rebecca Black Parody Video of "Friday"

Poor Rebecca Black got torn to shreds over her ‘corny’ Friday music video. To be frank, it was an insult to eardrums all around the world. It may have helped brain-dead viewers learn the days of the week and the difference between left and right, but it wasn’t exactly a masterpiece.

What has emerged from the ashes is a proudly South African parody video of Friday called Braaiday! Every year thousands of animals are ritualistically slaughtered to celebrate what has become an annual event in SA – National Braaiday. Here’s the splurb from YouTube:

Braaiday Parody VideoIn preparation for South Africa's National Braaiday, held 24 September every year, comedy duo 'Derick Watts and the Sunday Blues' recorded and shot a music video to parody the viral sensation that was Rebecca Black's “Friday.” Grab your tongs!

Here's the original Friday song if you haven't heard it

Braaiday Video - Rebecca Black "Friday" Parody

I just noticed that the Braaiday video currently has about five times the number of views than the Rebecca Black Friday video! Ha! Great job boys. It makes one proud to be South African B-)

** More Happy Friday Videos **
