Odd Future's goin' Hollywood. Mos Def's at their shows, they're booked on Jimmy Fallon, now they've banked a “Funny or Die” skit. We're pretty sure the scenario played out in the FOD clip is drawn from first-hand experience, but maybe we have our heads so buried in the internet's sand that we believe the hype. Oh, wait, the collective “we” created it–are we even allowed to reference Public Enemy?
Anyway, the skit got us thinking of our Top Five Odd Futuresque “Funny or Die” clips. In true Tyler fashion, if you choose to refute us, we'll curse in all caps at you.
5) Every Little Step with Mike Tyson and Wayne Brady
Because before Gucci Mane and Yung LA tattooed an ice cream cone and a DarkWing Duck, respectively, on the sides of their faces, Mike Tyson tattooed what looks like the swipe of a tiger claw. Because Bobby Brown was the first bad boy of R&B (paving the way for Tyler's “most swagged out” second place, R. Kelly). Because Wayne Brady references Wreckx-n-Effect's “Rump Shaker” at the end, which features The Neptunes' production before they were The Neptunes, Tyler's idols.
4) Swagger Coach w/ Taavon
Because if you're repping Odd Future, your swagger should be at very high levels, at all times.
3) Makin' Music with John Mayer
Because whether he knows it or not, John Mayer's stealing R. Kelly's sweatsuit swag. Because Tyler can't wait to sell out.
2) Can't Tell Me Nothin'
Because Tyler says Kanye West is his competition. Because it's only a matter of time before Tyler is on “Between Two Ferns.” Because Zach Galifianakis and Will Oldham are actually from the South, and swagged that sh*t out.
And the number one Odd Futuresque Funny or Die skit is …
1) Bieber Takes Over
Come on, you saw this coming.
