Alanis Morrisette's Humps

This is actually the real Alanis and her straight-up take-down of the so-awful-you hardly-need-mention-your-opinion-of-it "My Humps." The song itself is good enough- like all the great covers of "offensive/stoopid" songs it's performed as a catchy ballad with the lyrics over-enunciated (see Ben Folds' "Bitches Ain't Shit", Dynamite Hack's "Boyz in the Hood", etc.) The video just adds to it though; stick around for the very end where Alanis-as-Fergie's wannabe-feminist bravado is deflated via eyeliner tears.

By the way, I spent the entire first half of watching this video assuming it was a MADTV thing or something (it's not) and that they were going to change the lyrics to be about how HILARIOUS it would be if everyone in Hollywood started adopting 3rd world kids HARHARHAR just like Angelina. I wouldn't be posting it in that case.
