And the original (cos I'd never seen or heard it): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vj9swNR5-lY
my respect levels for her just shot up
incredibly like Dave Grohl!
just rams it home, really.
Did you get as far as the 'drama' lyric? Did you watch the original? :D
but that's a great video. :D

there's nothing about it that makes me not want to kill.
still, the lyrics are better.
After all, Stalin was a bigger murderer than Hitler but we don't ignore Hitler, do we.
!!GODWIN'S LAW ALERT!!
I can see how it might go down like a lead balloon.
Dunno, to me it appears to be satirising the ridiculous clothing, bling-bling style and look of the original video, which is worth satirising given it's so po-faced and duff.
Add to that the ridiculous lyrics and the 'drama' section which would appear to be playing on the fact that she made it big on the back of being utterly emo and dramatic over everything.
I'm not sure what's not funny about taking the piss out of the Black Eyed Peas to be honest.
and if she doesn't, it seems a lot of other people do.
i can't see a hint of self-deprecation/irony/parody etc in that video or the lyrics at all.
she (Fergie) appears to take herself very seriously in that video but the rest of them seem a bit unbothered...
who is anyone to make fun of anyone? Are you saying she has to be better to make fun of them? Surely she's doing a stupid cover of a stupid song, so a stupid video piss take of the video of that song is hardly wrong?
is actually properly definitely the worst song ever written. And Fergie is fucking rough. Alanis version is ace as.
I agree with everything contained in that post. Except I'm not sure the original even counts as a song - it's more like an advertising jingle.
this blows hard
I like alanis morrisette. Smart girl. Pretty hawt too.
i'll amuse myself anyway...
"alanis the camel had. one hump, alanis the camel had. one hump.."
Yea i fell asleep, thats was cack! Anyways i like ur way of ammusing urself more......
can i join in?
"alanis the camel had. one hump"
who is fitter: alanis or fergie?
Apricot Spinnach and not awnser that question
So she must be pretty trim. Fergie looks like she does some kind of sport. It's hard to tell without some kind of workout routine to put them both through.
Is this supposed to draw attention to the cack lyrics?
