The Second Worst Song Of All Time

Remember Tay Zonday? Yeah, me either. But someone did. And they decided it was a good idea to finance a sequel to his cult classic 'Chocolate Rain'. The new video is a three minute ode to why Zonday, who now goes by T.A.Y. to the Z, is a shining role model for creepy people the world over, and living proof that anyone can make it. Even if you look like a ventriloquist dummy.

If you can stomach it...

The video was pretty lame until about halfway though, at which point (to the astute observer) Zonday's virginity becomes painfully obvious when he awkwardly attempts to hand-feed cherries to a woman sitting on a couch. Then, out of the blue, a squirrel--which I'm pretty sure was an actual dead, stuffed squirrel--gets smothered in liquid chocolate.

It turns out, the whole charade was a commercial for the new Cherry Chocolate Dr. Pepper. I was a little ticked at first. But then I realized something. I live in a country where a terrible idea and a knack for being unfathomably devoid of talent will take you straight to the top. And I thought you had to marry Britney Spears. Maybe there's hope for me yet.

For me this is just a painful reminder of how people like T.A.Y and William Hung ("Worst Karaoke Attempt Of All Time") can hypnotize our pop culture and walk away with enough money to buy a villa in Tuscany while we are still in NY;)

Esattamente! (as my Tuscan villagers would say).

Wow.. my first thoughts as I watched it were "omg, where did this moron get the money to produce this?!".

As I had not read further down to see that this creepy thing was an ad, the Dr. Pepper bottle randomly appearing REALLY threw me off. Effective? Maybe..
