    (Note: Those with a weak tolerance for shitty American television shows may want to turn back now. You've been warned.)

    So, Jonathon Coulton. He produces some pretty good music, most famously "Still Alive" and "Want You Gone" from the Portal series. You've probably heard some of his other songs (Like "Re: Your Brains" or "The Presidents") at some point in time.

    This is Jonathon Coulton's cover of Sir Mix-A-Lot's classic ballad, Baby Got Back. It's from 2006. Notice the duck quack and the reference to himself as "Johnny C".

    Here is the Glee cover:

    I'm surprised they didn't rip off Still Alive/Want You Gone in a "gamer girls" episode to show how quirky the show is.

    Hey everyone, the cake is a lie! LOL OMG LE ME MES.

    Nah, they're obviously too busy keeping on the pulse of pop culture - Now who's up for some Gang-nam Style?

    Dang, I love Jonathan Coulton. Never liked that cover of Baby Got Back much though, so it's fine by me.

    Now, if they ripped off "Dance, Soterious Johnson, Dance", "Kenesaw Mountain Landis", "Stroller Town", or "Ikea", I'd have problems.

    Jonathan Coulton does a cover of Glee's cover of Jonathan Coulton's cover of Sir Mixalot's Baby Got Back.

    Meta.

    The song is available on iTunes, Amazon and Google Play, and all the profits go to charity.
