"Hey Mr. Mixologist," the Latest from the Fog & Smog Freaks Behind "Getting Real in the Whole Foods Parking Lot"
July 19, 2012
In baseball, when you hit for a single, a double, a triple and a home run in one game, it's called a cycle.
In adding the new home run parody video "Hey Mr. Mixologist" to its three previous standout hits—"It's Getting Real in the Whole Foods Parking Lot," "Hey Yoga Girl" and "Put Your Phone Down"—the Nor Cal-So Cal collaborative Fog & Smog has hit for the cycle, creatively speaking.
"I saw the bartender he looked like a nice dude," raps DJ Dave.
"He's pourin' a drink with one huge ice cube.
"I'm like ''Scuse me sir, could I get a beer?' He gave me this look like 'Why am I even here?'
"I was confused, like 'Did we start on a bad note?'
"He's wearing wax in his mustash and a lab coat.
"I'm like 'What's the matter, is beer too boring?'
He said, 'This cocktail dates back to pre-Civil War New Orleans.'"
Actually, you could make an argument that all four videos are home runs. There's a name for that in baseball two. It's called Four Home Runs. Which represents some serious game.
Whatever you call it, when it comes to skewering our modern-day obsessions—whether upscale grocery, yoga, texting or fancy cocktails—these guys are all-stars, and if they can keep it up, potential hall of famers.
P.S. "What's star fruit?"
