JUST ONE OF THE GUYS
Several new songs are making a mark on social media for new music Tuesday.
In this case, it’s not necessarily the song, but who’s in making an appearance in the music video.
Jenny Lewis released this new single “Just One of the Guys,” and you may recognize some of the folks playing back up for her.
Actresses Anne Hathaway, Kristen Stewart and Brie Larson play instruments in the video — and they all cross dress as guys in Adidas tracksuits and really bad wings and fake mustaches.
Lewis’ new album comes out later this month.
JUST WEIRD AL
Weird Al Yankovic is back with his new and last album and new videos to go with them.
As always, he spoofed a long list of popular songs like Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines.” In this one, Weird Al pokes fun at our poor use of grammar in this song called “Word Crimes.”
He’s also parodied Pharell’s “Happy,” into a new ditty called, “Tacky,” featuring Aisha Tyler from CBS’s The Talk and comedian Jack Black.
He’s promised to release a new video every day this week.
JUST CANCEL MY SERVICE
Calling a company to cancel service is never easy, and one couple found that out the hard way.
The call lasted nearly 20 minutes, as a San Francisco couple tried to cancel their Comcast service.
Ryan Block and his wife went back and forth begging to cancel the service, but the customer service representative wouldn’t do it.
The representative aggressively pushed the service and even suggested Ryan go into the store if he wanted to cancel.
After the rep finally cancelled the service, Ryan posted the marathon call on Soundcloud, where it’s been listened to nearly one and a half million times.
Comcast has reached out to Ryan on Twitter — saying “we are sorry & embarrassed by what happened. We’re determined to be better. We clearly have more work to do.”
