    And really, that song deserves some mockery.

    A couple of ideas though…

    I wonder what the take on copyright is in this case? Are Alanis Morissette and Black Eyed Peas (or is it just Fergie….or hmmm is that really her name?) on the same record label? Was Alanis payed to make this? Did someone have to pay royalties?

    Second, a google of “fergie songs my humps” returns Alanis’ video in the top two spaces. That’s interesting marketing.

    I think Alanis nailed this. It is that great combination of good quality and funny. Now lets wait to see Fergie (who I never heard of till a few day ago) do a rendition of Alanis’ song “thank you” walking around mainly naked in the city! Also, it should be mentioned that she put this out on April Fools Day.

    I love it – thanks for posting this.

    It’s kinda like a Johnny Cash’s Nine-Inch-Nails cover, but in mockery rather than revere-y.

    Kudos to Alanis.
