The Skorpion Show On Beyonce's New Single 'Girls (Who Run The World)'

When something as significant as the release of Beyoncé's first new single in two years happens, everyone on the internet seems to feel the need to share their opinions and expert criticisms, this website included. But as we racked our brains trying to figure out what to do for it, this video review by The Skorpion Show crossed our paths and articulated everything and anything we would ever hope to say, but better and more sincerely than we ever could. It should also be noted that this video is a response to the demo version of the song that leaked yesterday, and not the official version that came out today.

UPDATE: The show is liveblogged in the comments below!

I really want to liveblog this video and will probably do it here in the comments at 4:40 if anyone else is interested in participating -

David Cho (#3)

0:00 – I'll be honest, this is the fifth time I'm watching this video, but I don't mind, because it is that good.

David Cho (#3)

0:20 – At this point, you have no idea how deep Mikhail's feelings are on the song. They also do a great job of providing a lot of context as to what's happening.

David Cho (#3)

0:40 – The off camera girl (OFG)'s audible gasp is great. I'm going to watch older eps of TSS to find out what she looks like. She sounds cute.

David Cho (#3)

0:56 – Would kill for an animated gif of what happens to Kevin when he hears Pon De Floor come on in the club.

David Cho (#3)

1:28 – "Sigh."

David Cho (#3)

1:29 – That's me doing an impression of Mikhail.

David Cho (#3)

1:35 – "Who runs this house? WHO RUNS THIS HOUSE?" (Girls.)

@David Cho *pops popcorn*

David Cho (#3)

1:57 – Wait, so why is Kevin so mad at Willow Smith? This one of the things I just don't get about this whole thing. Willow Smith has smash records!

David Cho (#3)

2:30 – "…"

David Cho (#3)

2:31 – That's another impression of Mikhail.

David Cho (#3)

3:10 – I really want Beyonce to watch this video, the amount that Mikhail cares, makes it seem like he deserves to have a conversation with her.

David Cho (#3)

3:45 – OMG. KEVIN. AGAIN WITH THE WILLOW BASHING. WTF???

David Cho (#3)

4:00 – Again, why Mikhail deserves to have a convo with Beyonce.

David Cho (#3)

4:22 – Okay Mikhail, let's be real, 'Halo' and DEFINITELY NOT 'Get Me Bodied' are not THAT good.

David Cho (#3)

4:53 – BUT ITS HORRIBLE DOT COM

David Cho (#3)

5:00 – "If I could sit you in a locked room…" Okay, now that might be a bit much.

@David Cho Right? Halo is a real scandal in Beyonce's quest to apparently become Michael Jackson??? (Which, uh.) Still, Beyonce should hire them!

David Cho (#3)

5:32 – 2003 was a really great year for solo acts from former pop groups, by that I mean, Justin Timberlake and Beyonce were both solo at that point.

David Cho (#3)

5:55 – It seems unfair that Beyonce's held to a bar higher than everyone else, but I guess it makes sense.

barnhouse (#1,326)

@David Cho It's because Willow Smith is so vanilla! It's true, Beyonce is so much more than vanilla. I love her so much with her makeup all running and she is a big mess in that one video (This also is an AMAZING video thx.)

David Cho (#3)

6:18 – The pregnant pause after "icon" is PREGNANT.

David Cho (#3)

6:25 – Wait, they've been doing the Skorpion Show since 2008? GUESS I KNOW WHAT I'M DOING TONIGHT.

David Cho (#3)

7:10 – They're pointing out a flaw in iTunes, the fact that you can't buy a song more than once. Seems like iTunes could make a ton of money by allowing hardcore fans to pump more money into their fav artists – Bieber-heads, etc.

David Cho (#3)

7:20 – WHO IS THAT CHILD WALKING THROUGH THE BACKGROUND?

David Cho (#3)

7:35 – I didn't really like 'Single Ladies' when I first heard it either. Clearly I'm an idiot. Conversely, I do like the finished version of 'Girls'.

David Cho (#3)

7:39 – The fact that Kevin is singing along (and he has a nice voice!) makes me think he's already starting to come around to the song?

Minou (#258)

@David Cho I think that was Willow Smith

IBentMyWookie (#133)

@David Cho And please update us accordingly. This post has made my evening and I wish I was kidding.

IBentMyWookie (#133)

@David Cho That child walking through the room is THE LUCKIEST GIRL IN THE WORLD. Can you IMAGINE having those two in your life? Jesus Christ, I would forgo food and heating to have access to those gentlemen.

I like this video so much better than the single.

"Who runs this house? Who runs this house??"

Murgatroid (#2,904)

I LOVE THESE TWO GUYS SO MUCH.

I'm like the guy on the left normally, just totally uninterested and rude to the point that I'm checking my phone in front of a camera and then when Beyonce is involved, I'm the guy on the right.

<3 <3 <3

toonz (#10,533)

Trying to decide what I enjoyed more, the video or the liveblog of the video. I think it's a tie.

David Cho (#3)

@toonz :D

KenWheaton (#401)

So I'm supposed to reward Beyonce for turning out another in a long steaming stream of shitty songs by buying said shitty song on iTunes? I don't think so.

And while I didn't think it possible, that song is exponentially more annoying than Single Ladies.

bureaucrette (#367)

Oh my god, Mikhail from 1:32 to 1:42 and from 2:30 to 2:45 almost makes me wish he hadn't started to talk and had continued to telegraph his amusement/disappointment.

Aatom (#74)

It's spelled Makael, right? http://www.youtube.com/user/theskorpionshow

David Cho (#3)

@Aatom Hm, that's very possible. I didn't do a great job of researching the names.

mrschem (#1,757)

'I wanna cry right now.'

Abe Sauer (#148)

Wayne's World is the Tea Party and Skorpion Show is our nation's future.

tigolbitties (#2,150)

As a Bey hater, I hope this is the beginning of the end for her!

sssshhhhhhhaa (#11,261)

IBentMyWookie (#133)

zOMG the smile at 0:22? I want him to put a baby in me. WHY MUST YOU TAUNT ME, GAYS?

Patrice (#2,491)

Around 4:58 when he attempts to slyly shell and eat a peanut, I fell in love.

Resa (#11,290)
