Hand back in pocket, Alanis Morissette -- one ironic woman who gets the joke and appreciates a good parody spoof (nee Kevin Smith) -- uploaded a new video "single" this afternoon on YouTube.
But is it a real single...or is it just ironic comeback? Will radio pick it up? Or does it play better as a viral video? Does it matter?
The blogs already love it. 7:30pm update: Technorati lists 344 websites (with a bullet!) linking to the video. Another 4 hours later: Now it has a quarter million YouTube views. All for a parody video that would make Weird Al proud. Next afternoon update: Almost a million views and nearly 2000 Technorati websites pointing to the parody. Think Fergie's a fan?
4/4 evening update:: More than 1.8 million views on YouTube (plus the views on the 2800+ Technorati linked blogs.
A dozen years ago, her "scorned lover" attitude scored a hit with "You Oughta Know". Now she is "humpingly ironic" with a new cover take on the Black Eyed Peas (with Fergie) hit "My Humps".
You just might find this Alanis version about junk in the trunk sticky in your brain...
