If you haven’t gotten the flavour of Jeremy Moses’s writing, what are you waiting for? Here’s the direct link on MyJewishLearning.com to read the entire past year and a half of his blog oeuvre. Study it. Memorize it. You will never again be at a loss for a joke, a witty comeback, or an in-depth analysis of a prime-time reality TV show. Or just watch this incredibly viral video of Jeremy setting the world record for matzah eating:
We’re proud like parents that Jeremy has a new weekly column on National Lampoon’s site. Each week, he’s reviewing a YouTube classic video in exhaustive detail and deciding whether it’s one for the ages.
Probably more than any other viral video, â€œNuma Numa Guyâ€ has infiltrated popular culture the most. Quick word of advice to all Moldovan pop group managers. If you get a call from one of Mr. Brolsmaâ€™s people, never call him back. Ever. They owe that guy millions of dollars. Trillions. Basically every cent theyâ€™ve ever made since 2005 should go straight to Brolsma…..
First, a hypothetical. Letâ€™s say that Gary Brolsma were to appear in a rap video, dancing along side Ludicrous, or 50 Cent, or whoever the young people are listening to these days. Would the video automatically become cooler? Just think about that for a second. The fact that it doesnâ€™t automatically seem out of the question for a rapper to invite Brolsma to be in a video dancing with hot women with champagne on their breasts (and the fact that youâ€™re probably wondering in your head if Brolsma might actually have already been in such a video) is all the proof you need.
His first review, he told us, was of the Numa Numa video — one of the most popular videos of the Internet world. Which, of course, I nodded and said I’d seen a million times. Which, of course, I’d never seen.
“What!?” Jeremy exploded. “You’ve never seen Numa Numa? Seven hundred million people have seen Numa Numa.”
“Or,” I countered, “One person has seen Numa Numa seven hundred million times.”
