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!

(Carly Rae Jepsen - "Call Me Maybe" Parody)

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!

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-)

VIDEO: Backstreet Boys parody - singing Incomplete

THEY say that your varsity years are some of the best years of your life. I couldn’t agree more – provided that you went to a place like Rhodes and weren’t forced by your folks to spend your varsity life in the depths of a cold library trying desperately to complete a law degree within four years and spending your Friday nights in the dingy computer labs with the sounds of joyous, drunken revelry continuing throughout the night in the background...

Those students got a raw deal.

Two years out of varsity and I experienced what my fellow Rhodes scholars call "post-Rhodes depression" – a yearning to go back to the bubble-life and be surrounded by attractive, like-minded youth who accept you if you’re a little weird or different because of a shared understanding that varsity is all about personal growth and discovering who you really are. That, and having a jol!

My fellow Rhodents and I managed to reach celebrity status with our Backstreet Boys parody and wet the pants of many viewers young and old with this video that we made in our final year. It’s a ‘spoof’ video of the Backstreet Boys singing incomplete and is an example of what makes varsity fun, exciting and memorable.

PS: If you don’t at least smile while watching this then I’m afraid your sense of humour is somewhat impaired. It’s possible that you are severely depressed and should consider seeking professional help. Otherwise I trust that our Backstreet Boys parody made you smile.
