There's a fun story behind my discovery of Circus Afro. It was the end of the school year, and my band teacher let us just hang out for the last few days of class instead of practicing, so my friend and I were looking up stupid videos on my phone. She told me about this song, and even sang it for me, so of course I had to look it up, and I found the ten minute version. We could not stop laughing! Every time it repeated, we would look at each other and crack up. I'm pretty sure it was funny because of the slight pause in between each repetition, but I'l leave that for you to decide. What made this vid even funnier was when my teacher yelled at my other friend for goofing off and the whole room went silent for a moment - and then all you could hear was.. "DA DA DADADADA DA DA CIRCUS!" Of course, this sent my friend and me into hysterics, and we were nearly crying from laughing so hard. Enjoy the obnoxiousness:
Then, my friend posts this gem on my Facebook wall:
A brilliant mash-up, if I do say so myself! It's great that the two songs go so well together; they probably took the same amount of artistic talent to create. OOH, BURN.
And to wrap it all up, I present to you a vast improvement on the frighteningly feminine Justin Bieber. It's still an awful song, and it still makes my ears bleed, but at least I'm laughing simultaneously. I'd rather listen to Circus Afro than Baby any day:
Well, I hope that wasn't too annoying. I find dumb things very entertaining when I'm tired. Goodnight interwebz, I'll be back when I've regained my energy and my sophisticated sense of humor... or something like that. zzzzzzzzzzz....
