Remember back in 2011 when you basically could not leave your house without hearing the ear-wormingly catchy backbeat of Kanye West and Jay-Z’s “Niggas in Paris”? I would just like to remind everyone that this parody video also happened. Sorry, it’s stuck in your head forever again.
As an aside, as much as I love this BUST approved video, how depressing is the ratio of male to female writers in this? Can we replace Eugenides with Octavia Butler? De Montaigne with de Beauvoir? Barthes with Mulvey?
My suggested rewrite:
Nerdy boy, pick up some slack
Yesterday we started Spivak
He’s still on the first chap?
OH WOW YIKES clearly I don’t have a career in this. Just enjoy the video

One Thought to “Video Vault Episode 75: A Kanye West/Jay-Z Parody”
No…can’t say I ever heard that song. And if I did it wasn’t intentional and I didn’t know what it was. (like maybe it was blaring out of a car that drove past)
