To continue our celebration of the internet, we have a song from one incredibly happy looking dude. Do you know who he is and/or what music video of his is going to be featured today? Take a guess and find out after the break.
It’s Paul Wall and his song “Internet Going Nutz!”
The video starts with Paul getting an announcement that he has a new email. Swishaspace, a portmanteau of Swisha House (Paul Wall’s record label) and MYSPACE, doesn’t seem to exist, and neither does SWISHA-mail. Thank goodness! Forget changing your theme to a custom startup sound–could you imagine a .gif or .avi file playing every single time you got an email?
Paul Wall liked to call himself THEPEOPLESCHAMP, which, in fact, was the name of his first CD. Somehow I don’t think that title stuck with him…
Hologram Paul Wall can exist in cyberspace…and apparently stars in Pepsi Blue commercials.
Bacefook, however, isn’t even an attempt a clever name. Though it shows how ahead of the curve Paul Wall was on the craze (the video is circa 2005).
DJ Paul Wall.com no longer exists either.
Apparently Paul has a very customized browser, but can’t figure out how to resize his chat window.
Notice that he’s using DSL.
Looks like his hard drive just turned into a floppy drive. Zing!
Look at this hacker, a literal Paul Wall wannabee.
Thousands of dollars were spent to prove that the internet is a series of tubes.
For being the king of the net, Paul sure does have poor typing form. Also, can anybody tell me what type of laptop is he using? Is that a Ps1 memory card plugged into it?
Paul can be very contemplative at times.
I wonder if Paul’s ever been to QuestWorld or Mainframe?
So other than everything wrong with the Royal Rumble line, I’m going to point out the line before it. Road Runner High Speed Online employed the Road Runner character from the Road Runner/Wile E. Coyote cartoons as its mascot and brand name. Yup.
So yeah, you just listened to a song about a rapper and the incredible sex life the miracle of the internet has given him. Was this song possibly about his nuts? And the internet fawning over them? I hope not.
Overall though, I do like this song, simply because it’s not all about money cars and women–it’s not an “angry sounding” rap song. You know what I mean?
