Two weeks ago, CeeLo took the web by storm when he released his new catchy, awesome single “Fuck You” on YouTube. Now he’s just revealed the official video, which brings all the song’s fiery zest to an old school diner, complete with a trio of backup singers Ã la Little Shop of Horrors. Check out the newly minted video above (it’s only at a mere 338 views currently) and weigh in with your opinion. Personally, I think it’s a fun time, but I kind of like the simplicity of the original a little more, what with its speedy words flittering across the screen. Also, the little kid in this video does a terrible job lip-synching. But hey, at least CeeLo kept the language intact (as opposed to the radio version, which offers up the significantly more toothless alternative of “Forget You”).
One of my many, many Twitter followers just sent me a link to this song, and I have to admit, it’s awesome. Sure, there’s that whole novelty element of a song called “F**K YOU” featuring a chorus that bellows “I see you driving ’round town / with the girl I love / and I’m like / Fuck You! / ooo ooo ooo,” but truth is that this tune is more than just shock value. It’s really, really good! It kind of makes you want to get up and dance, embrace life, and maybe, just maybe wave your middle finger at someone.
So if you’re feeling particularly soulful or just want to curse off an adversary, please enjoy the above song. And yes, it is NSFW.
Thanks to run_t_run for the heads up!
