Who ever thought a satire of a satire could work? “My Box in a Box,” youtube.com/watch the satire of the Justin Timberlake satire “Dick in a Box,”is the funniest thing I’ve seen on YouTube. It was done by a collaboration of people under the name “Bunny.”
Satire of Satire
When Justin Timberlake did “Dick in a Box,”I chuckled. It was funny to watch him make fun of himself. Everyone enjoys a celebrity who doesn’t take himself too seriously. But then, I heard about “Box in a Box,”and I knew I had to see it. Maybe it is because I am coming from a woman’s perspective, but I thought “Box in a Box”was even funnier than Justin Timberlake’s original.
The lyrics to “Box in a Box”are similar to Justin Timberlake’s “Dick in a Box,”but are even more clever. My favorite line is when Bunny gets political. “Bush is ruining our country, but my bush has never lied, and Taco Bell might make you sick but my taco’s certified!” And then there is “you might like Starbucks muffins, but my muffin tastes good too…Britney showed the world her box, but my box is just for you!”
Although it’s definitely sexy and contains adult subject matter, there is nothing super R-rated about this video. Bunny never uses any curse words, just a generous portion of double entendre. The dirtiest it gets is through the use of words like “beaver.” We all know what she means, but she doesn’t use the four-letter version of the word.
The best thing about “My Box in a Box”is that it is a great song. Seriously, it is so catchy. If you watch it a few times you won’t be able to stop singing it. You’ll want to load it into your ipod.
Bunny is the Cutest
The credit on the video is given to “Bunny.” At first nobody knew who she was, but then it came out in the news that “Bunny”was actually a collaboration of people. There is the singer of the song, Leah Kauffman, and then there is the actress who played Bunny in the video, Melissa Lamb. The girl in the video is a University of Pennsylvania college student who lives in Philadelphia. That would explain why she is dancing around on the Art Museum steps like Rocky.
Keith Olberman did several segments about “My Box in a Box”on his show “Countdown”. At first, he was talking about it as if it were a bit of a mystery. Then, when the truth was discovered, he did an interview with both of the girls about the video. The singer said she was not able to appear in the video herself because she was living in London at the time. The other Bunny, the actress, said that it was one of the first things she had done, and that she was getting a lot of attention as a result of it.
