A Funny Thing Happened Last Night

I made a video! In almost one day! I apologize for the cam-quality footage, hopefully people will enjoy the video regardless. Cross-posted on my tumblr and livejournal. Yeah! (This is also definitely un-betaed, I apologize if it shows!)

Lyrics:
Louis Vuitton on the hook
Wang’s in ‘em
A good shoe for a bad bitch
Fuck with her
Eating with Jimmy Iovine
Lunch with her
She’s a get-money bunny
Jump with her

Bum bitches, bite my style, Dracula
Wear your Wu-Tang fangs
Novocane from Frankie

Your gonna need some backin’ up
Super-save these hoes
Cape Town, Africa
Catch me in N.Y, Uptown, the Battles up
Ponys and polo hoodies
All ready to saddle up
Mami I’m no rookie, already the champion
Boobie you not pretty, you lookin’ like a regular
Blonde cuties, space cadets, astronauts
Most niggas booty or Britneys or Ericas
Come and get me, et cetera, et cetera
Any challenge I bet I wet ‘em up
Beret is up

Salute, What’s good
Salute a bad bitch you should
Salute, What’s good
Salute a bad bitch you should

Damn, that is excellent! Perfect showcase for Uhura's badassery in ST:ID.

oh my god, I love this a lot, I can't believe more people haven't commented on it! It's perfect for Uhura in STID, who was badass yet vulnerable, and overall amazing, and I love how it shows her relationships with Spock and the others as well. Going to rec this everywhere I can because it's awesome!

WOHO! Thank you so so much! I'm really glad you enjoyed it, I just felt that Uhura deserved a vid after how much I loved her in STID. She's so damn awesome, and I definitely made it a point to include her relationship with Spock, as well as the rest of the crew, so I'm glad that came across.

PS Off to follow you on Tumblr now because you seem really awesome!

Hee, yay! Reccing this on my journal as well because definitely more people need to see it. :D

I was also wondering if you might be able to make the downloadable version open to people who don't have Box.com accounts? I'd love a copy, but I can't seem to make the download work!

Oop! Here's a link for mediafire, for some reason my download links always cause me massive amounts of trouble!

omg, I just watched it again, and this was the first time I picked up that the line about "Britneys" lands on Kirk and almost died laughing. KIRK AS BRITNEY IS MY FAVORITE, I think that might be one of the things I miss most about the 2009 fandom! :D

YES! The great 2009 mashups of Female Pop Singers and Star Trek were pretty much THE GREATEST OF THINGS, I'm really excited you caught my little nod to that!

now I'm trying to think of what would be the best pop song that's come out since 2009 to vid STID to..."Til the World Ends", maybe? :D

Haha, I know! There was such a wealth of pop songs to use. I think "Til The World Ends" is definitely one of the most appropriately themed one to come out recently.

Also, it is not set to pop music, but sometime in the next week I will definitely be posting a Kirk/Spock vid. I had too many feelings not to vid it! XD
