Is Katy Perry the new Hitler?
Maybe I should rephrase that. As you may know, we got famously the last time we met, nose to nose, popstrel to kangaroo. What I should have asked is this: Is Katy Perry’s Hot n Cold the new Downfall?
There’s a host of parodies here - Hitler moaning about there being no camera on the iPod Touch, about Sheffield Utd being relegated, about Sarah Palin resigning and about not being able to find Where’s Wally, among others.
It’s time for a new parodic political pop vehicle. And Katy Perry’s Hot n Cold is it. The original is here. The Sesame Street version is here. But now the embattled, injured president of Yemen Ali Abdullah Saleh has got in on the act. (Elmo eat your heart out.) Play the short clip for Katy Perry’s take on this aspect of the Arab Spring.
Thanks to Kinzi at My Treasure in Jordan for telling me about the film.
And here’s another one Cleaning Gets Old especially for all parents sick of tidying up after their children. (See? The KP HnC phenom is spreading already.)
Many people end their blog posts with moral lessons or questions. So here’s one.
What does KP have to say about your life? (You may have to think laterally on that one.)
