A few weeks ago, I discovered that A.R. Rahman’s Academy-Award-winning song, “Jai Ho,” was reworked. With the Pussycat Dolls. That’s terrible.
Fortunately (?), the fun didn’t stop there. The Pussycat Dolls have made have a video accompaniment to their musical crapsterpiece. If you’re curious to know what it’s like to barf simultaneously from your eyes and ears, you can watch it here. I’m not going to embed it, firstly because you can’t embed the Youtube version (thankfully), but mostly because I don’t want my blog to get the Pussycat Dolls’ strain of the clap. Consider yourself warned, though, because seriously:
I think this video needs to be preserved in a cultural time capsule so that future generations can know what it looks like to profoundly sell out. I’m not certain who’s worse in this situation. Is it the Pussycat Dolls for turning there sad bid for a few more moments of relevance into a nightmare ad for a cellphone, or A.R. Rahman for willingly appearing in this train-wreck of truly epic proportions?
D: Both. Obviously.
The only solution to this toxic mess is to take away A.R. Rahman’s Oscar and lock the Pussycat Dolls in that train station. Forever.
Thanks (I think?) to Videogum for dropping this mess in our laps.
