So, Outkast‘s “Hey Ya!” is now officially the new Kool and the Gang’s “Celebrate,” right?
From The New York Observer‘s “Power Punk” call to arms to the music behind commercials for Bravo‘s Celebrity Poker Showdown to the soundtrack of this Times ‘Sunday Styles’ article, to being embraced by Polaroid, the song is more ubiquitous than Cris Judd at the Playboy Mansion. As soon as the sheet music is available, you’ll be treated to the spectacle of your Aunt Mitzy chanting “Shake it like a Polaroid picture!” along with the awful band at the next wedding or Bar Mitzvah you’re dragooned into. Eventually, you may even be able to get Andre and Big to play at the gig themselves.
Good times, indeed.
