So, as the dedicated bloggers we are (since we’re the world’s worst bloggers, we at least have to be dedicated, right?), we occasionally go searching through the Internet, trying to find new blog material. Sometimes this means falling down various rabbit holes on facebook or YouTube, and ending up at places that surprise even us. This little gem was discovered on one such adventure. And frankly, readers of TMtP, we just couldn’t wait to share it with you.
Straight from MrLucasinalaska’s YouTube, we have this video that Mikey and a friend made several years ago:
Oh boy, oh boy, this is just the best thing ever, right? Right? Please don’t tell us we’re the only ones excited beyond all reason by this.
Okay, the first thing you may notice is that Mikey isn’t taking the lead in this lip dub, but rather is serving as the best Alaskan fly girl we’ve ever seen, backing up a guy we will refer to as Lil Phelpsie, because…
So Lil Phelpsie gets things started, and at :09 we get our first Mikey sighting. But things really get interesting at :37, when Norm busts out this move:
And really, we’re just disappointed that the closest we ever got to seeing anything that street from Mikey in Vocal Point was this:
Just not quite the same, is it?
Lil Phelpsie then tries to bring it in the moves department as well, but he’s clearly no BYU Folk Dance alum (unless he is, in which case, our bad!).
At 1:20, Mike-Daddy (like Mac Daddy? and he is a daddy? Okay, we’re reaching, but forgive us, we’re totally thrown off by Street Mikey) takes the lead, and a few seconds later treats us to some… what is that? Backwards robot moonwalking? Love it!
And then Lil Phelpsie weasels his way into our blog hearts with one simple move. That’s right, at 1:41 he nails a bell kick.
Keith! He’s stealing your moves! McKay! He’s reminding us of this:
Hmm… Lil Phelpsie may have just gotten himself into a blog feud with the McBesties. You’d think he would have been more cautious on someone else’s turf, right? We’d mention how this could be as big as the East Coast / West Coast rap feud, but we know VP claims to not know anything about rap, so we just won’t go there (you guys should still totally do “Tha Crossroads” by the way).
Now, the real magic starts at 2:04, as Mikey just totally brings it in this next section. Like, 2:16-2:20? That is just everything.
And then it’s more roboting at 2:25 and, oh our goodness guys, it becomes clear at 2:37 that Mikey is actually wearing some bizarrely fly version of the Standard Look.
Like, all he would have to do is try and convince us that that’s a cowboy hat, and it’s like he’s already in VP.
And then we just about lose it at 2:51, because seriously, Mikey?
You, sir, are hilarious.
And then Lil Phelpsie gets all sad panda at the end, since he can’t seem to “calculate ya” but Mikey’s just like, “Whatever, I’ma gon’ throw my hat like a balla an’ bounce!”
(Or, you know, however kind, sincere, Mike would actually say that.)
And that, dear readers, is by far our favorite thing we’ve seen on the internet this week. Or maybe ever. But for sure this week.
