INTERVIEW: Gail Simone Guides 'Blockbuster Update' of Red Sonja, Vampirella and Dejah Thoris
Although the second part of Bad Lip Reading’s sendup of The Walking Dead Season 4 doesn’t contain a breakout hit like “Carl Poppa,” which is likely burning up Billboard’s rap chart at this very moment, it does include a few gems, including Rick and Daryl’s dispute about the glue police, Tyreese’s song for Carol, Rick and Carl’s heartwarming drug talk, and Hershel’s apparent love for Prince (because, really, who doesn’t like Prince?).
However, if that still leaves you yearning for more of the “La Jiggy Jar Jar Doo,” you’re in luck: BLP has put together a lyric video from “Carl Poppa.” You can watch both below.
Some of the Bad Lip Reading videos can drag on a bit, like one of those Saturday Night Live sketches that never seems to end, but this take on the fourth season of The Walking Dead — Part 1, we’re told — is inspired, not for the Prison fight about apples and dolphins, or Beth’s threat against Anthony the turtle, but for the debut of Carl Grimes, sticky beat-layin’ pop sensation.
Although I’m a little disappointed we weren’t treated to footage of Carl devouring a Sam’s Club-sized can of chocolate pudding, the video for his single “Carl Poppa (La Jiggy Jar Jar Doo)” will likely be in heavy rotation on MTV, or wherever it is music videos are played nowadays.
And if you don’t care for it, that’s likely because, in the immortal misread words of Carl Grimes, “You can NOT handle the flow, son!”
The Bad Lip-Reading YouTube channel has blown up over the past couple of years, sending up clips from movies, television shows, music videos and news and sporting events with often-hilarious overdubbing. After targets ranging from Gov. Rick Perry to Beyonce to The Twilight Saga, the anonymous mastermind has now turned to The Walking Dead, AMC’s adaptation of the long-running comic series created by Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore and Charlie Adlard.
At more than five and a half minutes, the montage is one of the longer videos — so if you think Bad Lip-Reading is best delivered in small doses, you may want to parcel out your viewing. There are definitely some inspired moments, such as when a walker gnashes her teeth, proclaiming what animals she likes (sharks and skunks, for the record), and, just like the original version of the series, Andrea, is really, really annoying.
Also: Nothing in the entire series is more disturbing than Dale telling Shane, “I know what it takes to make you hot.”
