Front page of the local rag today was a story about the upcoming concert from the Axis of Evil or whatever The Gayme, Akorn and Juelz “Carlos” Santana are calling this tour. Following up the Australian Immigration Dept. preventing Snoop Dogg from entering the country a few months back (even though he toured a year earlier) and the unfortunate incident where the producers of TV’s Rove tried to get Xzibit to fondle Michael Buble‘s junk on stage or something, which he refused, only to be informed that “you know we came a long way just having you on the program”, which the X-Man took offense to and got the fuck outta Dodge.
Trying to rub one out on the sly?
The highlight of this witch-hunt is this little gem:
Last month, footage surfaced of Akon demanding a boy from an audience be dragged on stage after he threw an object at him at a concert near New York.
Akon then lifted the boy over his head and threw him back into the crowd.
As you can see in the following clip, the guy who willingly gets “body slammed” into the crowd is not exactly some frail ten year-old, but the fact that Akorn found it necessary to rip off his wifebeater before performing this Wrestlemania stunt is pure comedy:
As the “journalist ” who penned this article continues to grasp at straws, it’s also revealed that Gayme is:
Due in a US court in September over charges relating to allegedly impersonating a policeman and persuading a cab driver to run red lights.
Whoa, lock up your daughters Australia! I’m surprised there was no mention of the time he threw a park bench into wet cement of Punk’d.
Meanwhile, Snoop and MTV – never afraid to exploit the chance for some cheap publicity – have begun production on the “Welcome Snoop” ad campaigns, which are:
a tongue-in-cheek look at Snoop’s bid to become an Australian citizen, following him as he buys a house in the ‘burbs, gets an Aussie girlfriend (Sophie Monk) and learns what the word “girt” means.
Hopefully it’s funnier than this spoof on the incident from the usually entertaining Chaser’s War on Everything crew of university geeks:
Here’s a more successful sketch, building on the Leno‘s Jaywalking concept:
