If you’ve heard the name Jon Lajoie then you probably know that he’s a standup comedian, who attempts funny music videos with often hilarious results. To date, his major claim to fame has been as the “Regular Everyday Normal Guy,” a self-professed gangsta, who raps about things like back pain, poor luck with women, and waiting in line all night when he goes to the club. His original video has surpassed 30 million views on YouTube, and you owe it to yourself to watch it. Warning: NSFW.
Now that you know who Lajoie is, it’s time to revisit him in 2013 — the above video was from November 2007 — with his latest, an ode to our so-called “friends” and how we choose to remember them during the holidays. The song is entitled, “Merry Christmas Exclamation Point,” and you can pick it up in the iTunes Store. Feast your eyes and ears on the awesomeness. (This one is safe for work.)
At 668,000 views and counting, it does have a while to go before it catches “Regular Everyday Normal Guy” in popularity, but luckily, Christmas comes once a year. Those are some pretty great long-term odds.
