Brittani’s Video Party: The Evolution of Geri Halliwell’s Spell Block Tango

Greetings. This is Brittani’s Video Party, where I bring some of the “best” videos from all over my internet together so we can clap, cry or deconstruct. Have you ever gotten to a video and it already has 33 million views and you wonder where the heck have you been? Well I’m here to help you so that you see it when it only has 32 million views. Aim low, world. Aim low.

“Thank You Hater” is a song dedicated to hard working internet trolls everywhere. It’s been vastly underused as a subtle dismissal on Facebook, Twitter, and Autostraddle as I was unaware of its existence until Ali emailed it to me. May this video aid you in your internet future.

If you think that watching five people sing into a camera would be boring, you obviously have never seen a Pentatonix video. Or you have and you still hold this totally valid opinion, I don’t know your life. This time around the a capella group mashed up all of the jams in The Evolution of Beyoncé.

Apparently people are very into the Spice Girls forever and always so it might interest you that Geri Halliwell aka Ginger Spice has a new video for her single, “Half of Me.” It’s, uh… something else. I think she tried to incorporate some Cyrusesque themes to very little success.

Todrick Hall continues to dominate YouTube with his spot on parodies and takes on Disney classics. This time he brings us Spell Block Tango which is meant to show the villains’ side of things. Adam Lambert and Amber Riley make appearances in the already viral video.

If you have a video you think everyone should see, tweet it to @bishilarious for consideration. And of course feel free to post your favorite videos from the week below.

Autostraddle cannot exist without the generous support of our readers. We're running the fundraiser through March 29th! We're out of immediate danger...but we had to ask...what if we could survive for longer? Will you help?

Brittani Nichols is a Los Angeles based comedy person. When she's not tweeting about white people or watching television, she's probably eating pizza. Actually, she's probably doing all three of those things concurrently and when she's not doing THAT, she's sleeping. Brittani also went to Yale and feels weird about mentioning it but wants you to know.

Brittani has written 329 articles for us.
