These Teenage Girls Would Like to Sing You a Song About Rick Santorum

“She wears short skirts/ I wear t-shirts/ She’s cheer captain/ BIRTH CONTROL PILLS SHOULD BE CRIMINALIZED!” (are not the actual lyrics) (but could be!)

These Teenage Girls Would Like to Sing You a Song About Rick Santorum


Is your Thursday off to a slow start? You’ve already had your coffee AND your Five Hour Energy AND someone else’s sandwich from the office fridge…what can give you that “kick” you need to get your day going? May I suggest the energizing mixture of terror, hilarity, confusion, terror, and then back to hilarity again induced by this video for a song about Rick Santorum called “Game On”?

“Game On,” by First Love

This band of homeschooled hotties are called First Love. They’re two Oklahoman sisters, Camille and Haley Harris, who, according to comments posted on their YouTube account, wrote this song of tribute to Santorum and his understanding of how God wrote the Bill of Rights, in one fevered night of restless creative inspiration (just like Cat Power’s “Moon Pix”!). The video has already been viewed more than 54,000 times on YouTube.

What’s your favorite part of this video?

-Is it the girl in blue, who looks like she has no idea what is going on, and just kind of wandered into the room and decided to see what would happen if she also got in front of the camera?

-Is it the subtle digs at Bushes Jr. and Sr./ subtle crush on Ronald Reagan?

-Is it the way that people joyfully dancing around with Santorum signs just feels wrong, like the laughter of children ringing out through the old abandoned slaughterhouse on the edge of town?

- Is it Bass Dad?

(It’s probably Bass Dad)

If you’re so inclined, you can waste the rest of your day checking out their YouTube channel, which includes covers of Jason Mraz’s “Lucky,” Taylor Swift’s “Back to December,” and Extreme’s “More Than Words,” all with a generous helping of appearances by Bass Dad. You can also check out their tumblr. Are they a kinder, gentler Prussian Blue? I don’t know, but I’m pretty sure that someone forgot to tell them what “More Than Words” is about.
