Check Baby, Check Baby, One, Two, Three, Four

12 Aug

As I sat staring at my monitor in awe of the whole blogging process and all of its intricacies, I decided a test post was most certainly necessary. Instantaneously, “Check Baby, Check Baby One, Two, Three, Four” came to mind followed by a “Zoom Zoom Zoom and a Poom Poom” barreling in right behind it. Oh shit. Here we go. I remember that song! Who could forget as it was played on the radio like a billion times a day for forever! Not to mention MTV had it on repeat as they actually played music videos back then.

Makes me reminisce on those simpler times—lounging at the Peach Pit with Donna and that bitch Brenda, pulling out Amanda’s weave and pushing Sydney’s dumbass in the pool, and who could forget good’ol Stefano’s failed attempts to kill Marlena. These and so many other glorious memories erupt from the cavalcade of 90s characters who shaped my very existence. Yes, that is a lovely thought, isn’t it? But those were the days!

So, I’m thinking you need to join me on this wonderful stroll down memory lane. So voilà, I give you Wreckx-n-Effect’s “Rumpshaker” for your viewing enjoyment. And trust me, you will enjoy every fucking second of it. Get ready to get chur booty hopin!!


You see!  Straight up fabulocity!  Let’s begin with the saxophone playin bikini wearing lady who is TOTALLY AWESOME!!!  Obviously well trained in the musical arts, I was extremely impressed with her musical ability.  Also impressive is the choreography which showcases complex moves such as the “booty shake” executed with precision and style.  These dance moves are hella tight, just like all that spandex!  Double score!!

 Can we give a shout out to the stylist please?  This video’s brilliant use of accessorizations* included not only the usual run of the mill gold chains, bandanas, and neon fabulocity, but also skeeza’s accessorizing with life jackets and homie’s forehead wearing swim goggles — both of which are not only extremely fashionable, but also very practical in the event the boat capsizes due to all the booty shakin (and movin all around).  Smart!  And if you’re still not convinced of the stylistic superiority presented here, I suggest you revisit 2.28 in the video –yes, homegirl is rocking a SEA SHELL BIKINI!!  Now what? 

Let’s not forget about those lyrics!  With lyricism so deep and provocative, you have to stop and think, what is the deeper meaning here, what political statements are they trying to make?  Booty shaking, zoom, zoom, zoomin in the poom poom are just façades for the real issues presented.  For instance the second to last line, “Peace.” — obviously signifies their advocacy for world peace.  And, little known fact, my boy Pharell wrote a verse for this masterpiece—it’s just a shame he wasn’t in the video.  I’d like to see his booty shakin.

 So, as you can see, this video accurately depicts a typical beach experience: 1) lots of booty shaking; 2) sand; 3) water; 4) more booty shaking; 5) saxophone player; and 6) more booty shaking and movin all around.  With songs like this, who wouldn’t want to visit a quaint little beach community and set it off?  Or at the very least, get chur freak on at da club.  Unfortunately for me, I was busy celebrating proms instead of shakin my ass to this sweet little tune at the clubs.  It’s a damn shame. 

 *  Accessorization.  Yes, I made up.
