Jersey Shore Deep Thoughts: On Enrique Iglesias’s “I Like It”

Last night, faithful reader and fellow pop culture blogger Alex brought this video to my attention, so you can thank/blame him for this one.  Here’s the music video for Enrique Iglesias’s “I Like It” featuring Pitbull.  Oh, and the cast of Jersey Shore:

First off: HUH?!?

Is Enrique Iglesias still cool kid music?  Did “Sad Eyes” make him hip again?  (Please let it be “Sad Eyes” that made him hip again because that video is AWESOME.)  Also, is a love of Enrique Iglesias some sort of secret, previously unspoken part of the guido subculture that Jersey Shore‘s second season will explore with the same nuance and cultural sensitivity that it brought to sausage and peppers and fist pumping and pickle sucking, or is this a we-set-this-one-in-Miami thing?

Where the hell is Sourpuss during this mess?

Oh, I’m sorry, I meant Angelina.  Did she pack up her trash bags and head back home again?

Do you know who loves fist pumping?  Guidos.  Do you know who loves fist pumping AND doing their best moves from The Matrix on people’s couches?  Enrique Iglesias.

But perhaps most importantly:

Can we please petition John Waters to start putting Snooki in his movies?  Seriously, here’s Divine in the 1974 classic, Female Trouble:

And here’s Snooki rocking a particularly bouffant-esque poof (which she freakin’ invented, never forget):

Seriously, give this bitch a hankering for cha-cha heels and she’s like a pocket-sized Divine who’s the color of a carrot.

Much love to Wonders in the Dark for pic of Divine, and much love to Alex and Moya for the inspiration.
