Do you remember the time when reality shows were the only way to get some undeserved fame? Now it seems that everyone is trying to cash in with Youtube. While the internet has produced some indisputable stars like Darren Criss (of A Very Potter Musical fame) and Kreayshawn (“Gucci Gucci”), it has also produced some duds. Double Take, the latest viral video success (depending on your definition of success) inspired us to list the five worst music videos that we secretly love.
1) Lisa Gail Allred — 3 Second Rule
Listening to three seconds of this song is all need to know this is the best of the worst. Allred, who’s probably the oldest person on this list, took the original video down after receiving harsh comments and criticism for it. It’s been re-uploaded since, but why anyone would take time out of their day to film this in the first place is puzzling.
The terribly sung lyrics are about how Allred’s husband can only look at another woman for three seconds, a rule that “keeps her man in line.” It’s apparently such a universally important lesson that she felt compelled to teach it to a group of young lads (for her, anyway) decked out in white shirts and cowboy hats. Partly creepy and partly painful — with desperation sprinkled in for good measure — “3 Second Rule” is a song that no one would ever want to hear again. Or would you?
2) Brokencyde — Freaxxx
I don’t know what bothers me more, the overly auto-tuned dance music or the screaming. In reality, girls don’t want guys screeching into their ears asking to have sex with them. That’s probably the fastest way to a) get turned down and b) have a drink thrown into your face. Yet, Brokencyde seems to be living in a world of delusion. Not only does their video include obligatory cars and dancing girls, but someone dancing around in a pig costume. Are they trying to tell us they have some secret sexual fantasy? Girls of the world, run away.
