The ‘KIDZ BOP’ Version of ‘WAP’ is Going Viral Again, and Somehow it Sounds Nastier Than the Original
It's been nearly two years since 'WAP' took the world by storm and somehow, it is still managing to go viral.
This week, a food-focused parody of Cardi B & Megan Thee Stallion's 2020 rap banger that has been mislabeled as the 'KIDZ BOP' version is racking up views on YouTube and other social platforms.
I will totally let you dive into the original meaning of 'WAP' by linking the EXTREMELY NSFW original as I move on to discussing wings and pizza.
I know what you're thinking—why would I want to talk about delicious junk food at a time like this? Well, the reason is that we're literally discussing 'WAP' being an acronym for 'Wings And Pizza'—the parody that is currently lighting up social media.
It's understandable for folks to be up in arms about KIDZ BOP doing a parody of one of the most controversial tunes in recent memory, but once again, the internet did that thing where they took misinformation as gospel truth based on a YouTube video that was posted to Reddit.
A quick internet search reveals the source of this 'WAP' parody is YouTube user Lardi B, who put a foodie's spin on the original song back in August of 2020.
I mean, first and foremost, I think we need to recognize the skills, time, and effort that went into this parody. Also, I would like to point out that somehow, 'Wings and Pizza' managed to sound even nastier than the original 'WAP.'
As someone who deals with a lot of clean edits in radio, I can't say that sometimes innuendo can sound even more vulgar than the bleeped out words themselves.
Now, Wings and Pizza will never be the same and the reactions online have been nothing short of hilarious.
So there you have it—I've either educated you on why wings and pizza have taken over your timeline or I've given you a great idea for your next meal.
In a perfect world, I accomplished both. 😅
