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.
"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').
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???")
