LTV: Internet Going Nutz

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…

“I make this face when I’m about to start batin’.”

Hologram Paul Wall can exist in cyberspace…and apparently stars in Pepsi Blue commercials.

Blaqplanit does not exist anywhere online as far as I know.  It appears to be a mash up of  Black Planet, Black People Meet, and Grindr.

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?

“I was ready to pay her a visit, she used to look like Ke-Toi/But, one too many Almond Joys, I went and seen this girl in person/But when that big (bitch) opened the door I damn near started crying and cursin’/(Damn) Just too many Megabytes and not enough Roadrunner/But big girls need love too, so I beat it up like Royal Rumble”

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.

I told her baby I gotta bail, I won’t tell if you won’t tell/What the hell, the first minute I got in range of the nearest Dell/I changed my screenname and my number, this internet pimpin still prevails

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?
