Nick Cannon’s New Video Inexplicably Takes Place At A Fashion Show
It’s literally hard to type as Nick Cannon’s music video for his single, “Me Sexy,” has provided an endless stream of laugh-tears. Don’t ask us how we came across it, but ever since our first watch, we’ve been tittering at our desks like children.
The best part is that it’s kind of relevant (we use this word very cautiously) to our lives. This being because it takes place at a ‘fashion show’. But unlike the magic that is an Alexander Wang show, it’s actually just throngs of video honeys in tanks that read, “Me Sexy,” parading around a set-up that would make your high school charity fashion show look like a Mercedez Benz Fashion Week production. The good news is, all the models do know how to spell S-E-X-Y, because they don’t got no alibi, that is.
Oh, and there’s a walk-off too because anyone who’s been to the tents at Lincoln Center knows they’re totally commonplace. However, we’re genuinely offended at this poor homage to one of Zoolander’s most iconic scenes. A pearl of wisdom: Unless you’ve got David Bowie’s blessing, and even more importantly his promise of a cameo, don’t go there.
We understand that Cannon intends it to be some kind of parody, but what he doesn’t get is that we’re laughing at him, not with him, and are wondering what benefits of being Mr. Mariah Carey he actually reaps.
Watch the low-budge video below (did Nick film this on the America’s Got Talent set during a lunch break?), and just in case there’s any confusion, Cannon’s character, Mr. Sexy, is battling Napoleon Dynamite’s Pedro (a.k.a Efren Ramirez) as Señor Papi Grande. And if “me sexy, oh yeah, oh yeah,” is stuck in your head the rest of the weekend, we are terribly sorry. Now please excuse us while we try to decipher what “bump what them haters say” actually means.
