Kicked Your Monkey is about Gotye and Kimbra's failing relationship, which completely falls apart after Gotye cheats on her.Gotye is bored of Kimbra, and, in a fit of selfish cuckooness, begins to persue a woman known only as "Ms. Fisher." At this point in the relationship, he doesn't even listen to Kimbra anymore when she tries to dish out sweet, cheesy romance. The only thing he likes to is make Kimbra squeal in bed, but only on Wednesdays and only if she's got her stuff shaved to his specifications. Kimbra, meanwhile, stumbles upon his chat and text records with Ms. Fisher and confronts Gotye on his way out of Arizona to see her on how Ms. Fisher wants a banana in her crack, claiming that he has a "Waldo Sack." She also reveals that she found video of Gotye's affair, and, notes that he's having unprotected sex with her, trying to get her pregnant. She insults Ms. Fisher's hairiness and finally tells him he can go eat her pie, but to be sure to close the door on their relationship. When Gotye arrives on Ms. Fisher's door however, she refuses to continue having sex with him after she realizes he's been having unprotected sex with her. Rejected, Gotye leaves, but not before keying her van, which, along with the thought of strangling Kimbra, proves to be enough of a turn-on for him when he's masturbating later. Later on, as he realizes just how badly he screwed up, he notes that such actions were clearly signs that he's actually a member of the dark side, noting that they, too, are greasy, sex seeking freaks who try to hide their sexual escapades above people's heads. As he sits, he begins to contemplate how complex the world is, and the lines that people travel along through life often times intersect, injecting color into life.
"Dirty Spaceman" is actually a breakup song.A couple lives in space. Based on the chorus's wording, he (nameless, for the moment) probably lives with her (name/nickname 'Angel Mouth').
Bad Lip Reading is really... Ark Music Factory.Friday wasn't just the most obvious target, it was the most available. Basically the corporate bigwigs behind Ark saw an impending disaster and decided to engineer a big Take That, Audience!, by bringing in some sound-mixing guys who'd been building their experience on Youtube and other places, starting out with a rip on Friday, automatically endearing themselves to the populace, and building up a name with more and more songs. By the time they're done, the placeholder staff at Ark will be long phased out and Friday will hit the Fandom Berserk Button.
All Bad Lip Reading videos take place in a shared universe.Where the lyrics actually make sense, in context. Probably a low fantasy one, considering the presence of (simultaneously) magic geese, Uzis, hobbits, alchemists, and so on. This in turn opens the floor for some of the singers not to be human, if that floats your oyster.
The gang fight described by Rebecca Black...Is between her (and her group) and Miley Cyrus and her (aviator?) 'crew'. Additionally, Black Umbrella isn't the name of a kind of weed, it's Cyrus' gang, and Friday (potentially) is the name of Black's.
The "right stuff" is salvia, not marijuana as many listeners assume.Considering that Miley got media attention for smoking it earlier this year, why wouldn't it be?
Or inversely, BLR is raising capital to go into their own merchandising.Those BLR-branded plasma TVs in some of their videos? They might be planning to make and sell real ones.
In "Everybody Poops", apl.de.ap is a cyborg who is sympathetic to the human cause.He calls himself "a soft machine man", which sounds a lot like a description of a cyborg if you think about it. He either sides with the humans because he still considers himself mostly human (he does poop, after all) or just because he hates the idea of androids stealing school supplies so much.
Alternatively, the chickens are used as magical weapons of some sort.That's why Ludacris rescued the chickens and can't explain what they do, it must be kept a secret and only celebrities of their universe are allowed to interact with the magical chickens.
Whoever writes the lyrics to these parodies is either anorexic or morbidly obese.And that's the reason for the sheer number of references to food.
The reason the voice imitations are so spot-on is because it's actually them.I mean, it's clear the people behind all this are professionals. And the Nicki Minaj and Will.i.am impressions sound exactly like them... maybe it's the artists themselves having a laugh.
Or, alternatively, at least one of the people involved can actually read lips properly.
The videos are all actually intended to have the lyrics they have in the BLR videos
James Blunt is telling an epic story of revenge in Anachronic OrderJames Blunt and his pet bullfrog sell you some wine. They witness you punching a Brazillian orphan. Even the Bullfrog, who is normally emotionless, wants to exact revenge upon you for this unforgivable deed. James leads your dog into a hut and slits its throat, Destroys the submarine your friends are riding in (With help from a phantom), watches them drown in their own blood, and Pushes you on top of your burger and fries. He steals your wallet and buys a lot of good weed, a bottle of milk and a soggy eggshell. He then remembers his old pet owl, who had a strange habit of wearing clothes, and philosophizes that "a Zebra thinks he's half not-black".
A love triangle exists between BLR-Verse Taylor Swift, Wiz Khalifa and Bruno Mars, of which Barack Obama is aware.In “(Rockin') All Nite Long”, Swift calls herself “a waitress”. Obama, in “Trick the Bridesmaid”, comments on the crown being “for your juicy waitress”. Who has a crown? Mars, who'll “knock you out”. Clearly, Mars intends to invite Swift over and knock her in the head after wine to prevent her from becoming Khalifa's girlfriend, and Obama knows exactly what's about to happen, but is too busy dealing with the famine that Rick Perry mentioned in his campaign video (by stealing food) to help in any way other than trying to discourage Mars from going through with his crazy plan.
The guy behind Bad Lip Reading is Ghost.Both are Texans. Both are men of a thousand voices. Both are involved in internet culture. If Ghost is a troll, as some suspect, it fits.
Lou McGopher is Adrian the Frog.He got Angel Mouth to let him out of the airlock, and thus escaped back to Earth where he changed his name to Lou McGopher and joined up with Gotye.
The "Ricky???" Herman Cain is talking to is Rick SantorumUnfortunately, Santorum couldn't remember Cain's name in his video. ("Frankie???")
What an actual Bad Lip Reading concert would involve.
At the end of Hot Problems, The girls encounter Rebecca Black's gang.
In "Morning Dew", Jay-Z is portraying the CEO of a successful fast food chain specializing in chicken.
The Shih Tzu from Magic Man is the same one from Beard With Glue.
Wiz Kalifa actually IS an alchemist, and what he requests that you bring him is an alchemical formula.He has an appointment next week but nothing to do between now and then, so he decides to use the week to catch up on his sleep. Potatoes, meat and greens are all elements of hearty Soul Food, which is known to cause The Itis, wherein you feel drowsy and/or fall asleep after eating a big meal. Weed is also a relaxant and can induce sleep. By combining the two, he's able to craft the ultimate sleeping medicine, which allows him to snooze until he's gotta hit 'em next week.
Terry/Tyrion Lannister from Medieval etc. was the "ghetto Hobbit with an Uzi" from Magic Man...and Ludacris was telling the truth. Considering how he behaves and his speech patterns, this seems pretty likely.
The creator of BLR is a Time Lord...And that's why he's a Man of a Thousand Voices. Each regeneration only has to do a couple of voices, which he records and keeps handy. He records all the appropriate parts for each video and has put them together completely during his final regeneration. And at least one of his regenerations is a woman.
As a child, the BLR-verse version of will.i.am had his school supplies stolen by an androidHe never really got over that
"Tie-Dye Einstein", as mentioned in "Dirty Spaceman", is one of the "two different Einsteins" mentioned in "Inauguration 2013".In the Bad Lip Reading universe, Albert Einstein was cloned twice. The first time was successful, and the cloned Einstein took on an advisory role in the American government. At some point, it was decided a second Einstein was needed, but this one suffered from Clone Degeneration, and developed two unusual quirks: A preference for tie-dye clothing and a compulsion to steal stop signs. The second Einstein clone escaped from the cloning facility and is still at large. His rampant stop sign theft once caused Nikki Minaj to have a car accident - She was unharmed, but after her experience, she wanted to warn others through song. In the past, Tie-Dye Einstein has posed as the original clone to cause further mischief; Acknowledgement of the two Einsteins became part of the presidential oath because it was important that the President not be fooled again.
The Walkers in the BLR-verse are so polite and friendly that humans don't want to be associated with themWe always see the humans attack the walkers but never the other way around. The Walker are an oppressed race of former humans who just want to be friends.
Food shortages are a recurring problemWe've seen food shortages come up in political contexts a lot. Puka-chay puka-chay or Aztec for "lazy farmer" being used as an insult for anyone who puts a slice of pizza on bread? Farmers are scapegoated for the shortage and stereotyped as lazy. This makes some Jerk Ass behavior slightly more reasonable. Petey's casual attitude towards serving kitten meat as "they're just baby cats"? Not much else is available and he figured they'd be fine with it. Edward wanting to eat the dead rabbit is just being pragmatic and his outrage at his cake being casually eaten makes a bit more sense.
