G6 Christ…

***Update***: The Jesus version of the song was made by a comedy troupe called Totally Sketch, not a Christian one as I implied below. My mistake. But would you really have been that surprised if Christians made the Jesus version…?

The band Far East Movement recently had a hit song called “Like a G6.” You haven’t heard it yet because you’re too busy reading blogs instead of being cool :)

Poppin bottles in the ice, like a blizzard
When we drink we do it right gettin slizzard
Sippin sizzurp in my ride, like Three 6
Now I’m feelin so fly like a G6
Like a G6, Like a G6
Now I’m feelin so fly like a G6

I have no idea what the hell that means.

Hell, I just learned about the band five seconds ago when I looked them up on Wikipedia. Clearly, I’m full of pop-cultury awesomeness.

But since it’s popular, it wasn’t long before an embarrassing Christian version of the song came out.

I present to you: “Like Jesus”:

Turning water into wine, so delicious
JC always does it right, never vicious
Driving round in his ride, Getting B-lessed
Now I’m feelin so fly like Jesus
Like Jesus, Like Jesus
Now I’m feelin so fly like Jesus

I know, I know. You can’t wait to convert.

This must be the music they play in heaven. And hell.

    “JC always does it right, never vicious”

    Now what was that hell concept again? Infinite punishment for finite “crimes”…

    It’s by a sketch comedy group, not a Christian group.

    An G6 is the new private jet that all the ridiculously rich rap stars desire so they can wave a new status symbol in your face. At least that’s what I heard. I could be full of it.

  • Will

    a G6 is some kind of jet. I do not know how I know this (read it somewhere recently but I’ll be damned if I know where…)

    I think the jesus song is meant to be a parody and not a serious kind of thing. It definitely has that sketch comedy feel to it like Matt was saying.

    My daughter loves that song, I will have to show her the parody LOL

    what the …i don’t even …

  • Kaleb Gorde

    The finny thing is, a G6 isn’t a real plane, kind of how Jeasus isn’t a real person. xD

  • Robert

    I can sympathise with those poor Christians. They couldn’t bear to say their own embarrassing lyrics so they ran it through a vocal programme intended to help blind people, set it to an instrumental and called it a song. The people responsible for vetting the video before release probably couldn’t bear to listen to the thing, so they let it pass because they muted the video, saw Jesus Christ and said “Okay, it’s got Jesus in it, it passes”.

    TL;DR, it’s just plain bad.

  • Jeanette

    I don’t think this was done by a Christian group, it says it was comedy at the end. If anything these people are making fun of Jesus, but still pretty funny!

  • Kay

    Totally Sketch is just a comedy group not a Christian group. Probably poking fun at Christians more than the song I would guess. Look at their website or facebook page.. clearly not a band trying to “Christianize” the song. (Yes there are lame groups who do that, but that’s not what this is)

    Yeah, this is a parody.

  • Vas

    You haven’t heard it yet because you’re too busy reading blogs instead of being cool

    Aright… I’ve been reading your blog for years, and that was the best thing I have ever seen you write. Now I have to get up and go out and be cool, and that is time consuming and hard work. I don’t know if I love you or hate you right now, but suddenly I’m thinking you are cool and I’m slipping, for christ’s sake I’m still singing I’m on a boat, (in my defense I do spend a lot of my time on mother fucking big ass boats, gotta love SoCal).

  • Ste Rowley

    Its something to do with a Gulfstream G650, jet. So I’t told.

    Vas I think the comment was meant tongue in cheek.

    Poppin bottles in the ice, like a blizzard

    Now I’m feelin so fly like a G6
    Like a G6, Like a G6
    Now I’m feelin so fly like a G6

    It is the standard (c)rap lyrics of “I have money and a substance abuse problem! Isn’t that awesome?”
    Something about getting drunk while flying in his private jet.

  • http://religiouscomics.net Jeff P

    Those people making the parody video looked like they were having way too much fun also making a parody of Christianity to be actually Christians. Or maybe that is Christianity Los Angeles-style. ;)

  • Ben

    I always thought they were singing “all the models in the ice, like a blizzard”, which I thought was a reference to supermodels doing crystal meth.

    According to this hooded man who constantly lurks in shadows I sometimes watch, the G6… does not exist.

    It does have something to do with jets, yes, the aforementioned Gulfstream, if I’m not mistaken. Nevertheless, the ‘G6′ is still a mere fabrication by group of people who apparently know about a much as I do about jets.

  • anunahmuz

    relax its a parody. Totally Sketch is a comedy group

    i haven’t listened to commercial music in years. thank you for reminding me of why that is. i’m very glad for the internet radio stations i prefer on iTunes. no commercials, independent artists and proven classics, and none of this sort of stuff. bling focused hip hop, like speed/death metal or boy band music, is great when one is 13 or so, but i pity grown adults who take it seriously. or rather, i find them pitiful.

  • Justin

    This looks like a normal parody, not really any more embarrassing than the original.

    @chicago dyke: No commercial music? How is that even possible? Even independent artists are trying to make a living at it, which is conducting commerce.

    For some reason I want someone to turn this:

    Poppin bottles in the ice, like a blizzard
    When we drink we do it right gettin slizzard
    Sippin sizzurp in my ride, like Three 6
    Now I’m feelin so fly like a G6
    Like a G6, Like a G6
    Now I’m feelin so fly like a G6

    Into this:

    Launchin’ Vipers in the sky, red alterted
    Nukin’ toasters right so they be gettin’ resurrectin’
    Callis takin’ a ride, with Lucy Tricia
    Starbuck on my side, roll the Hard Six
    Roll the Hard Six, Roll the Hard Six
    Starbuck on my side, roll the Hard Six

    Would I be surprised? Are you kidding? When I was a Christian, I had an album with a cover of YMCA as YHWH. And yes, they were serious. Google “Apologetix” for some real fun.

  • altar ego

    Jek, that’s pretty badass

  • Jek

    Altar ego, my friend posted it on her Facebook, I laughed my ass off when I heard it. No idea who made it up.

  • Fett101

    Urbandictionary.com says a G6 is a Gulfstream G650, a $58 million dollar jet.

  • Stephen

    Po?

    A gilt Bentley on 30″ diamond encrusted rims is not enough of a conspicuous consumption symbol anymore; private jets are where it is at. This is not a new pop culture reference either, see Tom Cruise in one of his best roles as the heavily made up Les Grossman in Tropic Thunder. “G5 player.” Of course there isn’t a jet called the G5 either. There was a Gulfstream V which has since been replaced with the updated G500 and G550. This ‘song’ being newer, the bar has been raised. G5 is soooo 2008, real players are in the G6 now. I guess, i really don’t know; just spent 5 minutes on Wikipedia on the Gulfstream entry.

    PS: Using a Gulfstream costs between 2-3000 dollars an hour, and an engine overhaul costs $1,000,000 (more Googling)It seems nonsensical lyrics and heavy bass pays well. *deep sigh*

    I almost like the song about jesus better because I know what everything they are saying means . . .

    You realize now that if Christians DO make a Jesus-ier version of that, it’ll be all your fault. D:

  • CMRD Ivan

    1)G6 is a reference to the Under construction Gulfstream G650 using old Gulfstream nomenclature. (Models used to be referred to as G1, G2, etc as shorthand.) At the end of the vid they climb into what appears to be a G5.
    2)Slizzard is to get wasted, or highly intoxicated if you are really square.
    3)Sizzurp is a fun little concoction:
    -Promethazine w/Codeine syrup
    -Any fruit flavored soda
    -A jolly rancher
    4)Three 6 is likely a reference to the Three 6 Mafia. A rap group thats been around since ’91.
    Hope that helps. :D
