[krvod url=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JO6eydRPpyU#t=0]Every social group with a sophisticated structure has its own specialized language or lingo by its members identify one another, and nowhere is that more true than Fandom. Today’s Video of the Day by Keith Evans and Keith Allen explores this phenomenon by expressing an imperative: “talk nerdy to me.” This is too much fun not to watch. Enjoy.
Vocals: Keith Evans Rap: Keith Allen Lyrics by: Keith Allen
Get nerdy wit’ me… Tell me what game that you get on, is it COD or EVE? What kind of class do you play girl, in an RPG? ‘Cause I know what them elf girls need, from WOW to M.E. (Middle Earth) I’m goin’ 30 hours online straight now… You make it hard to leave
HOOK Been to Middle Earth, do you speak my language? Your elf ears don’t need explainin’ All I really need for you to do is … just … please Talk nerdy to me
Get nerdy wit’ me You name all twelve of the Docs, I can’t resist that And what’s the core in your wand? I think that ours match ‘Cause I know, with me, you’d get sort, Durmstrang to Hogwarts I’m pretty sure, on me, you’ve cast a curse girl, the imperius one?
HOOK Been to Comic-Con, hope you speak my language Your Harley Quinn don’t need explainin’ All I really need for you to do is … just … please Talk nerdy to me
Bridge: Uno, met a girl at E3 Dos, she wanted all my XP Tres, My 64 makes her want me Cuatro, Oooohhhhhh (vocal run)
(back ground shout: “One Ring!”)
Rap Verse: Up, up, down, down, forward, back, A, B You don’t need a cheat code, girl to get with me Just add my clan tag, bring your high K/D, ‘Cause the headshots we’ll be makin’ will be toppin’ the team Or Magic the Gatherin’, Deck on Deck, You like Twilight? Ya, I ain’t touchin’ your neck I got nerd friends, but they’re friends with respect I can call up Iron Man without breakin’ a sweat!
And I wanna hear your issues, ya, I’m talking about your comics, ‘Cause the fact of the matter, ain’t no girl badder than a girl that talks on electronics, And for us to get along just tell me Lucas got it wrong, ‘Cause clearly in Star Wars the first shot was made by Han. (Snap!)
HOOK Love the Enterprise, now I speak the language Your warp drive don’t need explainin’ All I really need for you to do is … just … please Talk nerdy to me
