THE MOVEMBER SONG: Another Happy Friday parody video

Movember has begun! Ready, set, grow! The boys who brought us Braai Day and the South African Car Guard Song have created another parody video to tickle our funny bones. Here's The Movember Song by the sickeningly talented Derick Watts and the Sunday Blues!

Some splurb from YouTube:

The band have created this video to help further the real purpose of Movember: educating men & raising awareness about prostate & testicular cancer, helping them to take control of their health whilst raising much-needed funds for the Cancer Association of South Africa (CANSA).

"We wanted to show our support for the Movember cause, which we have supported privately for quite a few years now," said Derick Watts member, Gareth Allison. "Not everyone seems to realise that there is a real meaning behind this month of magnificent "snors", and we just wanted to help contribute this year in the best way we know how - comedy!"

To find out how to get involved this Movember (either by growing some face-grass of your own or by donating), visit www.movember.com

Some splurb from the Derick Watts website:

Movember SongTo help spread the word, Derick Watts & The Sunday Blues have created an official group on the Movember website, where anyone can join and show their support and solidarity for this cause. Members of this group can donate to Movember through the group itself, as well as encourage their friends and colleagues to grow a manly, hairy, glorious moustache for a worthwhile reason.

Ladies, there's no need to feel excluded: you're also welcome! Women can also join the group and become a "Mo Sista" and show their support for their hairy compatriots. You can find out more about Mo Sistas here.

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!

VIDEO: Valentines Day ideas (good idea bad idea)

VALENTINES Day is that nauseating time of year when capitalism is in the air; but we call in “love” or give it some other facade. It is the time of teddy bears, chocolates and prick-less roses which adorn many a street as we near February 14.

If you're a hopelessly romantic girl with a guy, you're likely expecting Valentines Day to be the most romantic day of your life. If you're a guy with a girl, you're likely dreading this moment and wondering if your stuffed teddy bear or box of chocolates idea will suffice.

Originality is a rare trait when it comes to Valentines Day. If you're thinking of “doing something special” this year, here are some good and bad Valentines Day ideas – brought to you by the boys who made the brilliant Braaiday video.
