Summer does not officially start for another few weeks, if you want to be a jerk about it. Old Man Calendar Police over here. But the weather has finally gotten pretty nice (donate to victims of the Joplin tornado here) and besides, we already have our Spring Mix 2011 (AIRHORN!). Besides, if you are supposed to fake it till you make it, then surely you should summer it until you mummer it. (What?) The point is: barbecue. Also, I know that this music is terrible and Tonje Langeteig’s red carpet is hilarious, but if you take out the miserable RAED-wannabe rapping in the middle, there isn’t actually that much that differentiates this from Pizzicato Five. Put that in your 1997 pipe and choke on it. (Via Gawker, Vulture, TheDailyWhat, and BuzzFeed.)

  1. I want to say something, but no words come to mind. This video has stolen all my words.

  2. Just please guys, don’t summer it until you Joe Strummer it. RIP. Never forget.

  3. I do, however, want to be a crappy singer/rapper.

    Achievement unlocked!

  4. I prefer to party at my dentist’s office, too.

  5. Coincidence this came out of FRIDAY???

  6. I’m sorry to admit this (no one is forcing me?) but I rarely listen to the Jams that Gabe posts. I’m afraid of getting them stuck in my head and forgetting something important. I’m very Kelly Bundy that way.

    • Too bad, because in the middle, she tells you how you can get a free puppy and also a voucher for one (1) free high-five. Too bad you didn’t listen, now they’re going to have to take your puppy back to the pound.

  7. I think she’s a bit too tonje-deaf to pursue a career in music.

  8. So who want’s to tell her its too late? Does it have to be me?

  9. At least she has aspirations instead of settling to be a housewife below standards. Who would want to be a crappy housewife when you could be an awesome housewife?

  10. P5 aint got shit on this

  11. Real Crappy Housewive Of Norway, this summer on Bravjo.

  12. This video is just the nail in the coffin for all us fellas who had any idea of making Tonje our housewife.

  13. Her take on “A Doll’s House” is fine and all, but her “Hedda Gabler” is what’s going on my Summer Jams mixtape.

  14. Classy housewives know that you must cross your legs when wearing a skirt. You are already a crappy housewife, SORRY.

  15. Gurrrl, get yourself a decent weave.

  16. Oh come on, if you were all alone, you know you’d get all kinds of into it. Just like I did. Twice.


  18. This was filmed in Tonsberg, Norway. I was there last week looking at a Viking Longship and the largest Whale skeleton in the world. Now I am freaking the fuck out because I have had a drink at the place where Tonje Langeteig filmed her classic debut video.

  19. Before we all get into summer vacation mode, I would just like to point out that there are SO MANY DRESS CODE VIOLATIONS IN THIS VIDEO!!! IMMA MAKE IT RAIN DEMERITS UP IN THIS PIECE!!!

  20. The “lady” doth protest too much.

  21. I really wanted this to be from Germany. Tonje’s two wigga friends surely have something to do with the E.Coli outbreak.

  22. It’s awesome (?) that Norway now has its own Ke$ha and 3OH!3. Also awesome is how my brain knows those people, how to spell their “names”, and has the ability to make this connection, rather than, say, having the information I’m going to need for my finals next week. I guess that PROVES I’m not a crappy housewife! (Just kidding, I am.)

  23. Tonje… you’ve got some ‘splainin’ to do!

  24. It took me the whole song to realize that she was calling housewives crappy instead of lamenting that her domestic skills might be subpar, and I spent the whole time wondering how being terrible in some God forsaken club would translate to baking better cupcakes for the school bake sale. I’m not trying to be clever, I’m just sharing how truly stupid I feel right now

  25. If you don’t want to be a crappy housewife, then start being a good one by grabbing me a beer and making me a sandwich.

  26. Sorry! /Scandinavia

  27. Apparently we stopped sending rap music over to Norway ca. 1989. Vanilla Ice would be proud. Raed has nothing on those dudes.

    I’m not a fan of the term ‘wigger’, but those fellas are taking it to new levels of caricature.

  28. This is clearly the newest awareness raising video by the Norwegian League of Quality Housewives.

    Crappy housewifery is growing into a serious worldwide epidemic.

  29. Human beings don’t deserve music or the internet. Let’s give it to ant who are doing some really impressive things with just like… dirt and leaves.

  30. Is she saying that it is crappy to be a housewife or is she saying that she wants to excel at being a housewife?

  31. I’m not going to lie – it’s kinda catchy and I can appreciate the sentiment.

  32. It’s a misspelling; she actually doesn’t want to be a crappie housewife.

  33. I can’t decide! The music – mid-90′s…the large clocks round the rappers’ necks….I think I’ve decided. I love this video, but the clock necklaces and sideways hat gave it away – gotta be fake. Or the Netherlands have started to vomit up their own culture for no good reason, and look for gross stuff to eat.

  34. An open letter to Rebecca Black…

    Dear Ms Black,

    I apologise for all my hyperbole and hate. Yours is not the worst song on the intertubes by a longshot, and this song is proof.

    Yours sincerely

  35. Tonje “Crappy Housewife” Langeteig has to be a spoof/hoax/fake act and here’s why:
