Top 5 LMFAO parodies

I love LMFAO's videos, "Sexy and I Know It" and "Party Rock Anthem."  They're silly, inclusive of different people, and easy to parody.  In fact, the celebratory feel and silliness invite parodies, which then leads to top 5 parodies lists.  You may wonder, could my time be better spent?  It's possible- working out, cleaning, spending time with family, these could be better uses of my time. But current stressors make for poor sleep cycles, and it feels like nighttime right now although the sun's out.  As I wonder, "Where will I spend the next four years of residency?" thinking of silly things is much more distracting than say, reading about autism, doing yoga, planning my future career, or learning in general.

And so, the top 5 parodies, with #1 being the best:

1. I'm Gassy and I'm Bloated  (I'm Sexy and I Know It)
Suffice it to say, I can't relate, but I know you can.  For people less than 15 years, they're called toots.  For us adults, farts.  Funny, true to original, and relatable for all (except me).

2. Life in India (Party Rock Anthem)
"Everybody grab a bowl of rice."  A nice spin on party rock, creative and cheerful.

3. Staying in Anthem
Who hasn't stayed in, with the best of intentions to work, clean, reflect, and wound up googling actors and commenting on everyone's facebook posts?

4. I'm Arab and I Love it
This is a very sweet video, which includes arabic language and music and a cute kid at the end.

5. I'm Elmo and I Know it
Included to show the versatility of LMFAO- everyone can have a good time with the song.

Honorable Mentions:
I'm Country and I Know it
Funny lyrics, lower budget and made by a single person.

I'm Messy and I Know it
Cute, but includes stupid vacuum blooper at the end.

Worth watching if the title applies to you:
-I'm Jewish and You know it:  too forced to be an honorable mention, but stylish and includes the word "circumcised".
-I'm Geeky and I know it:  Good style and fun concept, but repetitive and low energy.
