The ‘Whale Rap’ Is The Greatest Horrible Thing You’ll See All Day
When you're pushing a social message, the only acceptable method is to rap over a sweet bongo beat!
Not to detract from the passion these two share for whales, or the sweet loving songs Earth's largest creatures produce, but this video is spectacular.
It has it all... A social message just waiting to go viral. A movement any average person could totally get behind. And that funky bongo solo in the middle!
Given the date this hit YouTube, these guys were campaigning for whales long before it became a reality TV show. Unfortunately, whaling still happens around the globe. Japan, Norway, Iceland, and other small native populations around the world still 'whale.' It's incredibly wrong, but it's allowed by the International Whaling Commission under a guise of research.
Regardless, we all got to sit back and bask in this spectacularly terrible video.
