Todd plays "Freaky Friday" on the piano.

A pop song review

Todd: You know, I've reviewed a lot of different genres on this show, but we've got something special today. We're gonna review...a comedy song! That's right, get ready to listen to some wacky hysterical comedy music with some hilarious jokes that will make you pee your pants with laughter! Are you ready for some humor? (Honks on his comedy horn) But of course, this is still a review show, so not only are we gonna get some laughs, I'm criticize it! That's right, I'm gonna explain why those jokes that apparently everyone thinks are funny are actually offensive and not funny at all. You heard me. We're about to get #PROBLEMATIC up in here! I wanna die.

Todd (VO): Now, to be clear, I am not saying we shouldn't analyze and criticize comedy. Jokes are extremely powerful and important, so I think it's a real vital thing to understand jokes and criticize them, harshly if necessary, if we're gonna understand our own beliefs and values and what effect we have on the people around us and what kind of world we wanna live in.

Todd: But what I am saying, is that doing so is completely unenjoyable for everyone! It's not enjoyable to write, or to read, or to listen to. Either you're gonna disagree with me, in which case, I'm a buzzkill shitting on your good time, or you agree with me, in which case, you were already offended and not enjoying yourself. So, I can make this promise to you, this episode is gonna be 100% no fun! Not for me or for you or for anyone else in the universe, it's going to be miserable. I'd rather skin my own feet with a carrot peeler! In fact, I don't remember why in God's name I decided to do this.

Chris Brown: I woke up in Chris Brown's body
Todd: ...Okay...Before we get to...that guy, we need to go back a little.
Lil' Dicky: This is me coming at you as a man right now, let me freak you
Todd (VO): This is Lil' Dicky. Up until apparently a few years ago, he was apparently just some marketing guy, and he was trying to break into writing for Hollywood, so he started making comedy raps, and apparently his mixtapes took off so hard that he's just decided to do this full-time. And apparently people really like him, but before this year I don't think he ever had that big "Dick in a Box" style viral breakthrough. I don't think I would've known who he was myself, but I just kinda kept randomly running across him on Spotify.

Todd: This was his most famous single, "$ave Dat Money."

Lil' Dicky: The rap game got it all wrong, We ain't 'bout to go and spend money just to flex on 'em, We ain't really got it like y'all (Yeah, baby!)
Todd (VO): Like, you know how rappers are constantly talking about how much money they spend? Well, he's talking about how much money he saved! Haha?
Lil' Dicky: Drugs are generic but still work the same, I get logins for Netflix from my cousin Greg
Todd: ...I've already heard this joke.
Macklemore: That’s 50 dollars for a t-shirt, Limited edition, let’s do some simple addition
Todd: A few times, more than once.
Kendrick Lamar: Renting is for suckers right now, A dependable savings, And you'll retire with money in your account
Todd: It's not like a total waste but it's been done.

Todd (VO): Although, there's one major element that Dicky brings to the table.

Todd: Greedy Jew jokes!

Lil' Dicky: You ain't heard of Lil Dave, Yung L the Jew biz major?/I'ma get on Yelp in a minute and review this piece of shit place like only a kike know how
Todd: Heh heh heh...look, he's the Jewish one, I'm not (As far as YOU know.) If he wants to make those kind of jokes, that's his perogative. I'm just saying, a lot has changed in the few years since he recorded that, so he might wanna back off a little. I told you this episode was gonna be no fun! If you're still here, that's your fault!
Fetty Wap: Ayy, where the gold at, baby?
Todd (VO): It's not the worst thing ever, I guess. The big reason it worked for me is the same reason "I'm On a Boat" worked. Because the beat was hot, and he got an actual big name rapper to do the hook, and you could almost mistake it for a real rap song.

Todd: ...I did mistake it for a real song. I actually don't listen to music all that closely, it took me, like, four listens. I'm actually terrible at this, why do you guys even listen to me?

Lil Dicky: Cheltenham, It was in the suburbs, upper-middle wealth around
Snoop Dogg: So real shit you ain’t never had to struggle for much
Todd (VO): But yeah, pretty much all his songs are in that vein apparently. Ooh, look at me, I'm rapping, isn't that funny? I'm lame and Jewish! A middle class white guy rapping.

Todd: The very idea!

Todd (VO): Like I said, I've seen it. Rap cliches are such cliches at this point that even the parodies of the cliches are cliches now. I can't say I was bothered or offended or anything. At least not until we got to the magical year of 2018, when he made a record with his new best friend!
