Can't Tell Me Nothing|
I think that the idea of 'white people doing hip hop' officially stopped being funny around 1982, but ... Zach Galifianakis manages to wring some new laughs out of the joke.
What makes it awesome? Let me count the ways.
1. That's really Zach's North Carolina farm.
2. Blond Teenage Cloggers.
3. Great cinematography
4. The way Zach acts all hard, but still kind of back country chill.
5. Tractor Humping.
On a slightly more serious note -- Hip Hop is a big deal for young americans regardless of skin color or where they live. I know a load of people who grew up in rural Iowa for whom hip hop is life -- it speaks to their condition in a way that nothing else does. For that matter I know a few black folks who love Country Music. It isn't who you are, it's how you feel.
