These people are wicked awesome. Live Free or Die, man.

tristeza, a good friend worked with Al at WNDS for a bit. He's a weird, weird little man who lives with his mom and wears his shorts up around his chest. Good memories.

I'm sorry, New Hampshire, but Minnesota has my heart.

Lyrics, so you can fully appreciate the excellence.

I like that about a million times better than the original.

I watched this yesterday and went on to watch some other clever SuperSecretProject videos.

There have been about a million and one of these, but this is pretty awesome. That girl's voice got on my nerves a bit - you really kinda need pipes to even spoof Alicia Keys.

saw this on barstool about 2 weeks ago, maybe my relatives will stop sending me this now... it is funny though... best parts "it's the kancamagus not the kangamangus" and "just like old hampshire but new"

I hadn't seen the Jay-Z video when I saw this originally and was really impressed at both how good and relevant the video is from a regional perspective but also how good it is from a video perspective. I can't get YouTube doubler to do what I want bu they seem pretty close. I wonder how they got all the aerial shots?

I did not think I would enjoy a song called Cry Like a Bitch but in fact I do. "mixing weed with Extreme Makeover Home Edition"

I wonder how they got all the aerial shots?

Most state tourism boards / visitors bureaus have stock footage they'll provide for free or cheap. These aerials absolutely reek of that.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.
