The Pips and Carrie Underwood

So it's true... I had that they were going to do like a spoof with Gladys Knight, having Jack Black, Ben Stiller and Robert Downey Jr. pose as her Pips. I thought it was too stupid to be true, but here we are and that's exactly what's happening right now. I suppose it's funny because of its silliness, but really, it's just filler. the one good thing about it is that the money raised by the downloads of that video will go to charity.

Next up, of course, is Carrie Underwood. She's singing "Last Name." It's getting to the point where it's not a season of "Idol" without a Carrie Underwood performance. Not that I'm complaining - I think she's awesome. And she looks beautiful tonight.

I've been fast-forwarding through most commercials, but I just caught one with David Archuleta mimicking the "Risky Business" Tom Cruise scene, I guess advertising for Guitar Hero or something. It was cute.

Too stupid to be true? Do you have no sense of vintage, and the genuine comic value of the three biggest temporal comedians playing straight men against each other?

Is this on You Tube or anywhere else on the web? This is too good to be true. Anonymous above is right. A sense of cultural history is all that is necessary to think this hilarious.

i didn't realize until tonight (the comment about the babysitter liking bryan adams) how YOUNG the author must be and that explains SO MUCH about the gooey eyed jason castro obsession and all the total oblivion regarding older songs (like neil diamond - how could anyone over 21 not know sweet caroline?) The Pips parody ROCKED and was one of the best parts of the filler.

And at least Carrie Underwood didn't forget where she came from (she still thanks AI fans for her awards) and isn't "too busy" to go to the show.

NOW...here's MY QUESTION:
HOW WAS DAVID ARCHIE ALLOWED TO DO A COMMERCIAL? I THOUGHT THEY BASICALLY BELONGED TO AMERICAN IDOL AT THIS POINT??? I found that to be totally uncool that he was in an ad (more than likely being paid) while he was still in a competition when SO MUCH STINK was made by his camp for the SELF PRODUCED CD that david cook had on amazon (and, to be fair, the previous CDs by kristy lee cook and carly smithson)

I believe David Cook did they same ad, so it must've been a package deal

I agree. The blogger is annoying.

Search for David Cook Guitar Hero commercial. Both Davids commercials can be found. David Cooks version was better, it was pretty close to the Tom Cruise moment.
