Released Aug. 1, the video features a perfectly nuclear suburban family doing the “Soulja Boy” dance from 2008, the phrase “mother-fathers,” outfits like Puff Daddy and Ma$e in the Mo' Money, Mo Problems video and a Busta Rhymes-induced product placement, brought to you by SiriusXM Radio.
The video is an update on the 2010 viral, um, “sensation” that garnered 12.5 million views, according to Rolling Stone.
The advertisement fails on several fronts: no family who raps this poorly together has ever been this happy doing it, even in a “swagger wagon.” This commercial has also ruined the word “swagger.”
It's also ruined Busta Rhymes, who has drawn attention not for his cameo, but his overall appearance, which also sparked conversation after the 2014 BET Music Awards earlier this summer. Did Busta at least get a Rav 4 for his contribution? A Toyota Tundra? Anything cooler than a “swagger wagon?”
One thing is for sure, no one driving a 2015 Toyota Sienna is listening to any of the SiriusXM hip-hop or rap radio stations. They are listening to '80s on 8.
The summer of Chris Pratt rolls on with ‘Forgot about Dre' recitation
Get out of the way, Jennifer Lawrence. Chris Pratt is America's new adorable sweetheart.
Ever since he's been the husky, but adorable Andy Dwyer on NBC's Park and Recreation, Pratt has had a fan base. But since he lost 75 pounds to play Peter Quill in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, his personality has really shone through in interviews.
So, the internet officially loves him on par with “Jennifer Lawrence is so approachable and normal” levels of love.
On a recent appearance on The Whollywood Shuffle radio show, Pratt discussed rap, his amazing rendition of Eminem's verse in Forgot about Dre and possibly playing Knight Rider. Oh, and no one writing this also knows all the words to Eminem's verse and raps along with Pratt. Nope. Not happening.
For his part, Pratt also thinks it's a hilarious shame that Justin Bieber got punched by Orlando Bloom in Ibiza last weekend. Thus, we swoon and are totally jealous of his wife, actress Anna Faris.

To celebrate its “25 best characters on television right now” issue, Entertainment Weekly will come out with two covers, but it's not of the two characters in their star roles in HBO's Veep and Netflix's House of Cards.
In one cover, Spacey dressed as Veep's Selina Meyer, and he is clearly a better looking man; in the other cover, Louis-Dreyfus is dressed as the cutthroat Frank Underwood, with blood flowing from her hands and her petite feet not even touching the ground. They both look marvelous.
And it's not too late, TV fans – you can vote for your favorite TV characters on EW's poll by clicking here.
Hamish, who was the one who took on the challenge, felt “the worst pain a human is capable of experiencing” for several hours, even by wearing the gloves for just a few seconds. After a few hours of intense pain brought on by the rapid stinging and released toxins of the ants, he was taken to the hospital and given pain killers, an IV and antihistamines.
