Black Eyed Peas, 'Let's Get It Started'
They're back! Researchers at MIT's Manny Ramirez Institute For the Study of Mental Incompetency in Sports have arrived at a graduated scale for measuring the response of sports fans to the music of will.i.am. If you're someone who sits quietly throughout the game enjoying your 128-ounce Coke Zero, his songs will cause you to groove around in your seat a little and perhaps emit the occasional "Woot!" If you’re the kind of person who stands through the entire game and enjoys giving unsolicited advice to referees, it will cause you to get up and engage in Annoying White Man dance shenanigans (inane air-chopping gestures, funky robot moves, dances people don't do anymore such as the cabbage-patch, Roger Rabbit and lawn mower). If you’re the kind of person who yells "D-Fense" during every possession, high-fives strangers and gets in parking lot scuffles with anyone wearing the opposing teams colors (including women), you are likely to rip the cushion out of your seat and eat it while pounding your chest like a feral Yeti. "Lose your mind, this is the time," indeed.
