    Awesome analysis Todd!
    This song is bad enough, but the video but me a couple steps closer to being a lesbian

    Am I the only one who thinks that LMFAO is only around to fill the void in the music world (kinda) left by 3OH!3?

    Such a egotistical song, really how vain do you have to be not only to THINK you are sexy but have actual thought into the matter and not bother to even be given a second opinion?


    "If you are sexy and you know it flop your dick"......XD LMAO! That line is never going to leave my head thank you Todd.

    It's fun to stay at the YMCA?

    Oh well, that's what giggling chicks in rap videos look like to straight women. You men brought this on yourself.

    Wigglewigglewiggle....I can't look away, like an impending train wreck.

    From a guy's perspective, a guy who has many gay and lesbian friends, I would say that this song converting you would probably be the least damaging thing it could do to you. (You have to imagine me saying all that in Todd's voice.)
  • Set Abomine
    This song is the equivalent to a bunch of ten year old boys playing a game of "mine is bigger than yours" in the locker room showers after gym class.

    Although it's written on a childish level that would be insulting to most ten year old boys.

    As a girl, I do enjoy this song and video more then I should...I can say that and not fear the backlash.

    Fair point you made for getting analytical about it, thanks Todd.
  • hellomayo
    I really agree here. The video and song makes me die laughing.

    When my bf and I first heard it on the radio, we're like "What is the Wiggle Dance?" Then we saw the video and we both died laughing. Now we both make jokes related to it. lol

    I just don't see the appeal to this music. I only see the charisma of these guys carrying their career.

    They are not even sexy in real life, I know plenty of male pop singers that could be considered physically more attractive than these guys.

    y'know, except the 124 million or so who voluntarily did so. For the record, I don't think the song is as bad as all that, though it certainly doesn't warrant this level of popularity.

    I love your vids Todd.
    Party Rock i found bareable but i couldn't finish this music video on my own, i am not sure whether to thank you or forget i ever saw it.
  • Taufiq91
    avatar
    Oh LMFAO,

    actually this song is better than Party Rock Anthem, possibly because it's less overplayed than Party Rock Anthem.

    And i can't wait for this song to be the next North Korean video meme like what happened with Party Rock Anthem:
    http://www.youtube.com/ watch?v=VJNBfBr-OGU

    Okay, now i watched the video and while the song is okay, the video is worse than googling "Krokodil Addicts"

    SERIOUSLY, DON'T GOOGLE IT!!!!!!

    Just so you know: It's a degenerative skin condition caused by addiction to a drug called Krokodil. There, now you don't have to Google it and see something horrific. I foiled your evil scheme, Taufiq!

    Too much wangswang for one video, I don't wanna see someone else's junk
  • Treatietime  - So, this is kinda sexist...
    I like how a guy wearing a speedo is obviously this disgusting thing that should make us all throw up but when a girl's tits are out, it's sooo hot and sexy and if you don't have your tits out, you're a prude.

    Jesus dude, be a little more secure in yourself. You can see someone you're not attracted to (in this case, members of the same sex) in a bathing suit without being all EWWW GOD NO HOMO UGH I CAN'T BELIEVE I'M SEEING THIS UGH. How do you think girls watch... anything, ever.
  • LaCapitana
    avatar
    No, it's gross and people of LMFAO know it. So is the objectification of women, which Todd is also against.
  • Treatietime
    Do you think homosexual men/straight women are gross? Because they tend to like penis.
  • PalaceOfGlass
    avatar
    I'm a straight female, and I still think LMFAO floppy speedo cock is repulsive, so that's kind of moot.
  • axlryder
    avatar
    @palaceofglass, Well I'm sorry you find perfectly normal human physiology to be repulsive, but I'd say you're the one with the problem here. Or perhaps you just don't like speedos? Though I just don't see how someone wearing a speedo could be seen as a any more repulsive than someone who's naked. Either way, I'd say you're a bit odd.
  • axlryder
    avatar
    @Lacapitana gross? Really? Reevaluate your definition of gross, please. Puerile, sure I can give you that, but not gross. Calling it gross makes you sound like a child yourself.

    Gross

    adjective.
    * flagrant and extreme
    * indelicate, indecent, obscene, or vulgar
    * lacking in refinement, good manners, education, etc.; unrefined

    Verb phrase
    gross out, Slang
    a.to disgust or offend, especially by crude
    language or behavior.
    b.to shock or horrify.

    One can easily deduce that LMFAO were intending to do and be all of these things quite on purpose. That's the joke. Gross is the perfect word.
  • axlryder
    avatar
    I actually thought that after I posted the comment, and while it's true that they were attempting to be "gross", judging by the tone of her comment (and the comments she was responding to) one can presume she meant it in a visceral context, not the more apt social definition. Thus the problem with her comment and usage of the word "gross". Given the rather pervading colloquial usage of the word, I'd even be so bold as to say the social usage is rather antiquated at this point. I highly doubt you'll see her describing your typical rap number or even most of lady gaga's vids as "gross", despite that also being pretty accurate. I also don't think LMFAO was really trying to "disgust" people with this, though I can see that being debatable.
  • double.shelix  - Two points
    avatar
    1) The word "gross" was never used. She said "repulsive."

    2) That's a moot point anyway, because she specified that the object of her revulsion was "LMFAO floppy speedo cock," not cocks in general. She specifically finds the floppy, speedo-encased genitalia of the members of LMFAO to be repulsive, without passing any judgment on all the rest of the world's dicks.
  • Doitaiya
    avatar
    I love Todd, but I have to agree with Treatietime ^^' Also, perhaps my taste is not as "normal" as of all the others here, but I think most of the dancers are handsome and sexy :P I cant decide for myself, what message the video has, but imo its great to finally see more male flesh in the media ;)
  • baticus_moronicus
    avatar
    Were we even watching the same video? Everything Todd says from about 10:05 onwards addresses what you are saying. It kind of sounds like you just saw the opening and jumped straight to conclusions before actually giving Todd a chance.

    Also, no one said that if you don't get your tits out you're a prude. Especially not in this particular video.
  • some-other-guy-with-glasses
    In the movie Watchmen, Dr. Manhattan spent pretty much the entire last act of the movie with his neon blue wang hanging out. But, despite finding it a little...odd, I was able to pay attention to the movie.

    BUT, these two braindead, talentless morons were actually TEABAGGING THE SCREEN. The two scenarios are little bit different if you ask me.
  • Badgercheese94  - No

    A hot guy is sexy. No one in that LMFAO video, is hot or sexy.. They're cocky, have shitty hairstyles, and more blubber than a walrus.

    I think that video may give me nightmares. The music is horrible too. Oh god I feel dirty just listening to that!
  • christianandproud
    Incredible. You didn't actually analyze a single lyric. You just complained about the song. Please, Todd, go back to how you used to do videos!

  • RayLedgend
    avatar
    XD! You know, the first time I heard this song on the radio, I was flipping through stations. I literally tuned right at the "wiggle wiggle wiggle yeah" part. At that moment, I knew it was only a matter of time 'till you reviewed this one =P
  • lukeguy
    avatar
    Well Todd, this was definitely your Crowning Moment of Awesome. Not only did you sit through this entire song, you also analyzed it to the bone and came up with a purely philosophical reason for why it's bad. You. Rule.

    I had to shield my eyes while watching this video... I used to have a friend that liked LMFAO. I haven't seen her in a while. I shall assume this atrocity was her undoing.
  • axlryder
    avatar
    Actually his reasoning was terrible, but that's kind of the joke. At least I assumed it was. I sure hope no one was actually taking that seriously.

    Todd's Sexy and he knows it~

    Well...i have to be honest, LMFAO is actually promoting lesbian acceptance to the community because when you see that fro's junk waving in your face you know instantly you can never like another guy again!

    Well that's okay, because it doesn't seem like the heterosexuality community hasn't lost anything special in you. OHHHHH snap.

  • dragonpullman
    This song is proof of one thing, in the pop music world, whoever exalts himself shall be exalted. There is no other way to explain it, because how else is this song currently holding (as of 11/22/2011) THE NUMBER 2 POSITION OF THE HOT 100?! If my fellow Americans allow this piece of crap to become a Number 1 hit song, I will have lost all faith in the citizens of this country!

    WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY??????????????

    This is nasty. This is just plain nasty. It isn't funny. It isn't gross-funny. It's just gross. I mean, I guess you might find it funny if you're a homophobic, misogynistic frat boy, but is that really this band's target audience? I mean, really!

    Ah, LMFAO... you're the band that makes the straight women gay, the gay men straight, and the straight men get sex-change operations.
  • Treatietime
    I like how you accuse people who find it funny of being homophobic when you're flipping out at the mere suggestion of a penis. You're the homophobic one.
  • PalaceOfGlass
    avatar
    Yeah...I'd say there was more than a "mere suggestion" in that video. I don't really blame anyone for flipping out. It's gross. Straight, gay, bi, pansexual, asexual...it's gross.
  • aunt_zelda
    Why is Ron Jeremy in the music video?!

    Loved the Oan cameo, and good for him for getting you to analyze the song, even if it was mostly just for a joke. Still funny, still awesome.

    *cannot stop laughing*
  • Cinnamon Scudworth

    You can't make a video like this and NOT expect Ron to show up.
  • jdreyfuss

    The Oancitizen cameo worked nicely. It reminded me of when he did that monologue from Glengarry Glen Ross. I was hoping he'd finish with some Pinafore.
  • JehuTron
    avatar
    Well , Ron Jeremy did (Freak of the Week), so being associated with bad music is not something new to him. :P

    Man, this song is clearly made out of 100% pure stupid! >:(

    yeah, this one is a strong candidate for 2011's worst song ever made.

    and lol at the end credits song! XD

    Yeah, the whole dancing around in a speedo with your junk hanging about was actually funny when Electric Six did it in The Gay Bar (partially because they all looked like Abe Lincoln), here's it just assinine and pointless.
  • TheBlitzkrieg  - As a former musician...
    avatar
    I honestly see little, if not ANY, appeal of the music of today. Hell, even 5 years ago had much better music, even if a majority of the mainstream pop shyte did still suck. We also had a resurgance to a minor degree of rock bands happily populating the place with Green Day, Fall Out Boy before they completely conformed, AFI, Angels and Airwaves, Franz Ferdinand, The Killers, Death From Above 1979, The Trews, Foo Fighters, +44, MCR, Billy Talent, Alexisonfire, Evanescence, and Rise Against to name a few. Many of these bands (at least in Canadian charts) were well in tune with society giving you a mainstream clash of sorts between two cultures and made for a very interesting time to be into music because no matter what side you were on, you could dive further if you chose to be much more educated in music. Mainstream music had a point and flavour back in 2006!

    Fast forward to 2009, and the era of music goes to dancy pop shyte for the most part that is not only more repetitive than rap, but is basically trying to push the nightclub now onto small children and tweens. 2 years later, we never really left that, did we? Way to "uphold social values" FCC; you censor our TV, but have no problem selling sex to small children and have people whipping their incredibly tiny dicks in mainstream culture...WAY TO GO DUMBASSES! I already have a 46 minute rant on rap music stored somewhere, don't make me do a new one for this, cause I don't think I can survive the sheer hatred I'd be pulling out.

    As much as I want to think otherwise, music is dead and we are alone in the universe. It's funny that when Michael Jackson died, the music industry, which was already on a path to death anyways, decided to take itself, and drop itself off in a bath of explosive diharea from the chick you asked out because she was hot, but failed to realize she had some serious hygiene and bowel movement issues! I mean seriously, all I hear is more puked up vomit and WAAAAY too much synthisizer. If I have to hear this or Dubstep, someone's getting stabbed and hung as an example of how bad this shit is! GAHHHHHHHHHH!
  • JehuTron  - @ TheBlitzkrieg
    avatar
    Hey , I enjoy listening to Dubstep, compared to the rest of today's shit music. it's probably the best (if not the only) thing that hit the mainstream recently.

    I do agree with the rest of your statement, though.
  • double.shelix
    avatar
    Five years ago, I was at my senior prom refusing to dance to repeats of "Do Your Chain Hang Low?", "Laffy Taffy", "Party Like a Rock Star", "Smack That", Soulja Boy, "Fergalicious," "Smack That," and Evanescence's second album. And these are just the ones I can remember off the top of my head. My friends and I spent most of our senior prom playing cars in the hotel lobby, music sucked so much back then.

    I see nothing gross about their bodies. Does it make me weird, or are you guys just that self conscious. Geez...
  • TheBlitzkrieg  - not self-concious at all, but...
    avatar
    compared to a UFC fighter, WWE Superstar, tween losers from Twilight, or superheroes on film, they look atrocious. I literally wanted to puke, speaking as a guy who has a respectably lean frame. They have no right to say they work out in their songs when they look like they've only seen the inside of a gym all of once.
  • michault
    avatar
    The work out line was clearly a joke, but you're right - all not athletic people should be hidden and/or shot. God forbid they parade themselves on screen and have fun with it.

    The music is atrocious though.
  • TheBlitzkrieg
    avatar
    That is not having fun, that is sick: having fun is being proud of who you are and going to wear the clothes you want and go jump in that pool you like. Heck the video had a clip of that! This is just a way of egoboosting, or a romp of humor that is completely lost on most (if not all) its intended audience because these mainstream fadhoppers don't even have enough braincells between them to figure out "hmmm, they might be joking" and listen to it to stroke their own egos. The video is a disgusting hot mess that proved once and for all that there are jackasses in the world who want to sicken and torture the lives of children and people with a fucking education because they simply can.

    note also, 4 of my 6 exes were bigger set girls. The other 2, one had a pixielike frame, and the other had a body and looked like Catwoman in terms of frame. So I'm not condemning unattractive people, I can't, but that video (and song) are just plain gross.
  • Alukonis
    Wow commenters, it's so great to see the body police out in force. Because what really makes the song bad is that you don't find the LMFAO guys sexually attractive. Yeah.

    What makes people feel sexy, and what people find sexy, is a very individual thing. It's not fair to judge people for that.

    Also seriously to those commenters that think this will turn straight women gay, apparently you're unaware that most men aren't buffed out bodybuilders and most of them have regular schlubby bodies like these guys. Oh and a lot of men are fat, too! At this rate it's a miracle any women are straight!

    *eyeroll*
  • TheBlitzkrieg  - lol, but off.
    avatar
    be careful what you say however, with lesbianism being so chic nowadays and virtually every chick I've ever met who has more than 2 working brain cells are bisexual...

    To put it simply, this would've flew a lot more if you don't factor that in.

    Also, most guys may have those bad bods, yes, but you also never hear the girls say "PUT THOSE CLOTHES BACK ON!" Because any guy with 2 brain cells would, fearing getting their asses kicked by both other guys AND their significant other. The reason is because it is purely disgusting! Getting naked in bed with them is one thing because you're focusing on more than just sight.
  • Alukonis
    Okay so let me see if I have this right.

    1. All women are bisexual, because lesbianism is trendy. This has nothing to do with societal pressure to make out to get male attention, or with any innate attraction to women - it's because if you have more than two working brain cells (i.e. not dead) you follow trends?

    2. Men's bodies are disgusting unless they are like Adonis, and other men (and their SO) will beat them up for not being perfect?

    3. Having sex with someone you find physically disgusting happens all the time because you can turn off the lights?

    I really don't follow your train of thought. At all. Do you like, not believe lesbians are real? Do you think human sexuality is just made up, and no one is ever actually attracted to other people? Do you think that guys in speedos regularly get the crap beaten out of them? I don't get the "put your clothes back on" part, because, if girls don't say that then aren't they okay with scantily-clad men?

    What exactly is wrong with scantily-clad men? Why is it purely disgusting? Why does this upset you so much? Why do human bodies gross you out? Does your religion mandate modesty or something?

    By the way "more than 2 working brain cells" basically means "not dead" so you're making awfully big generalizations here. I'm afraid I just don't understand why you think everyone likes women's bodies and hates men's bodies.

    I mean you are aware that gay men exist, right?
  • Yugo17
    That's weird but I didn't find Todd's video funny this time. I think Todd may have been taking this video a little too seriously. It's a stupid song I got that, but why is he making it seem like it is the worse piece of trash he has ever come across.

    To me the worse songs are the ones that do take themselves seriously but are just ridiculously dumb pieces of drivel like anything Lady Gaga puts out.

    This is not a song Todd should be reviewing. This is a dumb song and it knows it come on it even has fucking Ron Jeremy in it. Why take it so seriously?
  • BrightRaven
    the entire review was "EWWWW! BOY JERMS!"
  • singitjohnny
    avatar
    I think the gist of the review was kind of "I know you're joking, BUT YOU'RE NOT FUNNY." It doesn't matter if the song isn't taking itself seriously and knows it sucks, because that doesn't erase the fact that it sucks.

    Knowing that you're awful is not a free pass for being awful. It just makes you a douchebag for willingly and purposefully being awful when you're perfectly capable of changing yourself for the better.
  • Vismutti
    avatar
    My thoughts exactly.

    Well, I do find that people have some weird issues about the male body and such... (On the other hand, I really don't find it attractive, least of all sexually attractive, either.) But that's really not the point of why this song sucks. And yeah, Todd pretty much talked about the whole issue there too if you actually listened.

    (Although I guess it's a symptom of a culture in which only the extremely good looking people are allowed show off their bodies and others are forced to resort to humour as an excuse.)

    Okay, I think I lost the point of this comment...
  • Vismutti
    avatar
    You know, I actually got the feeling that Todd was really pointing out his own silliness here. He had Oancitizen appear and tell him off for being repulsed by this. And he tried to analyze it "seriously" only to go "no, it just sucks because it sucks" at the end. Because sometimes you can't explain why something annoys you so.

    And it thinks it's funny when it reaaally is not. Not hitting my sense of humour at least.

    Also, Todd himself was doing this to be funny. Because these are comedic reviews, you know. Or did you not get the memo? Yeah, all these videos on this site (or most of them anyway) are supposed to be comedy and the critics are actually playing characters.

    Not that I know how much of Todd's disgust was an act but you can pretty much bet on that it was at the very least exaggerated.
  • An ExtraordinaryGentleman
    avatar
    There's a fine line between "postmodern" and "shit". This falls in the latter camp, because as humour it doesn't work. The entire song is built around one joke, and only one joke:

    "LMFAO don't have great bodies! LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL OLOLOL"
