Friday Afternoon Funnies: If I Was Your Droidfriend
Fact: I didn’t knowingly hear a Justin Bieber song for well over a year after he made it big a few years ago. I rarely listen to the radio, and certainly not any stations that would play Justin Bieber. Someone started singing a Bieber song to me, and thought I was joking that I hadn’t heard it and couldn’t sing along.
I read that Justin Bieber’s latest album displays a musical jump akin to what Justin Timberlake did post-N Sync (from shit boy band to talented artist). So any good music blogger would check out such a song, would they not? This is my roundabout way of saying that I’ve heard the new Justin Bieber song, Boyfriend. It’s okay – that’s all I’m giving you.
Being the mega-popular Bieber, he’s ripe for the picking for parodies, and his latest song doesn’t escape unscathed. The spoof is of Boyfriend, and the end result is Droidfriend – a story of
C3PO C3-Bieb-O (MAN, that’s terrible) and Star Wars. The song includes lines such as “I’m the droid you’re looking for, Ben Kenobi knows; I’ll protect you even better than a TaunTaun in the snow.” And I thought they smelled bad on the outside. Check out this week’s Friday Afternoon Funnies.
