Worst Song on YouTube Week 2: The “Him? Really?” Edition

This week is a bit different because the song isn’t an abomination, but the artist is just so perplexing.

Here is your worst song of the Week:

If you don’t know who Lou Williams is, you are in the overwhelming majority.  Lou Williams is Jrue Holiday’s backup on the 3-seed  Philadelphia 76ers coached by Doug Collins.  I intentionally threw some “fat” on this sentence to add to the questions:

1. Who’s Lou Williams still?

2. Who’s Jrue Holiday?

3. Philly is a 3-seed?  Do they still have Iverson?

4. Doug Collins?  Who?

Nevertheless, Lou Williams is pretty unknown.  He’s a decent backup, but I wonder who gave him the chance to lay down tracks.  I mean, how often does the following conversation happen:

“Alright, we need to get a big name.  Who we got?”

“Well, Lou Williams is available.”

“Lock it down.  Immediately.  We’ve gotta have him.”

It just doesn’t happen.  Jeremy Lin would be a better get (even though I’m absolutely certain he has no rap talent.  Then again, I’ll never question Jeremy Lin.  Ever).

Enjoy Lou Williams, readers.  This may be the only time you’ll see him in person.

For years now, Canada has been waging a secret war with America. You may not realize it, but you have been begging them for it. You’ve even gone so far as to helping pay for it. No, it’s not through the use of bombs and guns, but through guitar riffs and hair flips. With so many billions   of dollars being spent on the war in the middle-east, how can our government be so blind to the issues here at home? You may still be wondering just how Canada has managed such a feat, and the answer is simple: Nickelback. Read the rest of this entry »
