I listen to all sorts of music. However, I don’t actively seek out country music most of the time.

So, a few weeks ago, one of my cousins was in town and started talking about this artist named “Brad Paisley” and a song he had out called “Ticks”. It was a country song that had a twist of humor to it, because it’s chorus’s tag line was “and I’d like to check you for ticks”. You can imagine the embarrassed look on my moms face as she was blaring this song for the first time in a van full of people (she turns red).

Well, a few days after that, my sister came downstairs and had to show me another song by Mr. Paisley. This one was titled “Online”. The key was that she had to show it to me… (Not listen). She claimed it was the greatest music video ever.

I’m not sure I agree with her because I still laugh every time I head to youtube and pull up “White and Nerdy”. But this one comes close, for the following reasons:

  • William Shatner is in it (and has lines about women)
  • Other famous (although not imporant to me actors) are in it
  • The reference to “My space” (albeit, not that cool of a site)
  • Because, I truly am cooler online.
  • The “I like to check you for ticks” is in the video.
  • “I can’t sing?”
  • “Beam me up”

I strongly recommend you check out the video here.

I then recommend you come back, leave a comment, make sure you vote in the poll below, and then download it from itunes here:

    – "why are all your friends so chesty", "they are?"

    – The look on Brad's face at the end of the video

    you know, i actually really don't like that song…and dislike the video even more! that's just me though. I love country…but what have they done to it?! Glad you found some humor in it though. 🙂
