In theory, Spike TV’s ‘Lip Sync Battle’ is the so, so stupid. It’s arguably dumber than 'Deal Or No Deal’, and that game is literally just a dramatic process of opening random briefcases. 'Lip Sync Battle’, however, is essentially just celebs listening to popular songs together. The audience sits there, loving every second of “incredible entertainment”, without even realizing that they’re just listening to a 90’s radio hit on the PA speakers. Oh, and Chrissy Teigen is there. So, that’s cool.
Somehow, when celebs perform these renditions of their favorite songs, we all go nuts for it. I mean, who doesn’t want to watch Dwayne The Rock Johnson pretend to sing a Taylor Swift song? And who wouldn’t cheer on Janet Reno while she performs 'Straight Outta Compton’?
Recently, it was Alison Brie’s turn to fake a song on national television. For some reason, this is awesome. I don’t have an explanation as to why, but watch the video and try to tell me you weren’t thoroughly entertained throughout. Perhaps it’s the Salt-N-Pepa classic, maybe it’s the pageantry of the performance, or most probably it’s the fact that Alison Brie is insanely hot. Either way, I’m thankful for the 'replay’ button.
