What’s better than championship sports anthems? Championship sports anthems recorded in round 2 of the playoffs! Meet ‘Pesky Back,’ the Ottawa Senators-themed parody of Justin Timberlake’s ‘Sexy Back.’ Nothing says “we’re the team for this year” quite like a song from 2006!
Here is another ditty… The folks at CTV Morning Live Ottawa do another video to help cheer on the Ottawa Senators as they take on the Pittsburgh Penguins in Round Two of the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs!
Teaching pro Marty McCurry has a new way to fix his students’ golf swing. If they don’t start swinging “inside-out,” he threatens to keep rapping. Enjoy!
I’ll be straight with you … when I saw that there was a Vanilla Ice parody video about golf called ‘Slice, Slice Baby,’ my first thought was, “oh great, the Golf Boys again.” Now I’m just happy that the Golf Boys have an N*SYNC to their Backstreet Boys. N*SYNC were the ones that would just randomly rap, right? Or was that everyone.
I hope this video catches on, because it can’t be too hard to put this in Actual Vanilla Ice’s hands and get him to cameo in the follow-up, which I assume would be called ‘What It’s Like (Havin’ A Rory)’. Buy him a sandwich at the clubhouse and he’s in!
If you’d stumbled upon an off-key parody song about Dwight Howard throwing the Orlando Magic under the bus set to Cee Lo Green’s 2010 hit ‘F**k Forget You,’ you’d probably say “wow, this is dumb,” followed by “this must be pretty old” and “some weird Internet guy made this.” But no, here is a Dwight Howard ‘Forget You’ parody song made with South Park technology released YESTERDAY by THE ORLANDO NEWSPAPER.
No, for real.

I don’t even know what to say. As a sports blogger, my brain is set to “make fun of people who still make Harlem Shake videos” right now, and if I see a ‘Gangnam Style’ or ‘Call Me Maybe’ parody I get to deride whoever made it for being sloth dinosaurs. How do I even BEGIN to handle the Orlando Sentinel aping a hit so old that ‘Glee’ covered it TWO YEARS AGO?
Holy shit, Orlando Sentinel, get your shit together.
If you needed a reason to hate the Baltimore Ravens, here is a group of their fans becoming an accessory to a goddamn Carly Rae Jepsen ‘Call Me Maybe’ cover in 2013. 2013. They went with ‘Bring On Brady’ as their hook, too, which apes the “Brady sounds like maybe, let’s do a Call Me Maybe parody about him” joke somebody made eight months ago.
Was the decision-making process just flipping a coin? Heads, we do ‘Call Me Maybe.’ Tails, we do ‘Gangnam Style.’ Come on, you guys have so much to work with. I wrote like 80% of a Ray Lewis ‘Murder Was The Case’ parody in my head while anger-typing this. It’s not that hard.
Bonus points for the guy in the background being weirdly possessive and flattering himself at the same time, though:
Yesterday, we shared with you the very hopeful story of the NHL and NHLPA meeting to end the 2012 NHL lockout. It’s Wednesday, and the lockout is still going strong, but the two sides met and negotiated for more than seven hours. They’re planning to pick it back up again today. It feels like something might budge this time. Regardless, I think I speak for everyone when I say this: I’m happy the NHL Lockout happened, because it let this one Canucks fan pretend to be Robyn on the Internet.
Inspired by Robyn’s “Call Your Girlfriend”, “Call The Union” is an impassioned plea from a hockey fan to the warring NHL and NHLPA to knock it off with the silent treatment and get to meaningful conversation. Chances are it will have no impact.
Are you kidding? Supporting, listening to or pretending to be Robyn always has an impact, especially when you center it around YouTube. Why do you think Taran Killam is suddenly so popular?
The end is in sight. If it isn’t? Hell, at least we get six more months of wacky viral videos. And for the record, I need the NHL Lockout to end for two major reasons: 1) It feels weird to go this far into a year without getting my hopes up for the Caps, and 2) I’m supposed to go to Canada at some point and visit my friend Danielle. How am I supposed to do that without hockey? I have to wait until the Spring and see the Blue Jays. The Blue Jays. How cruel ARE you, NHL?
That headline isn’t a guarantee. I mean, this could spark an online Alex Rodriguez Rod Stewart parody video revolution, with A-Rod and Ronald Isley duetting ‘This Ol’ Third Base Of Mine’ or whatever, but it’s at least ONE of the best. (via NOC)
