For nine weeks now, I've been meaning to write this column, but I kept getting distracted by stuff like the Keyboard Cat and Pretty Ricky's latest round of furniture-humping histrionics. Cobra Starship are a musical meme, the band equivalent of every groin shot, epic fail and outrageous bit of bodily harm you've ever watched YouTube or e-mailed to a million co-workers. Theirs is a brilliance reserved for the zeitgeist-grabbing Tay Zondays or Chris Crockers of the world. It's stupid smart. Genius dumb. And this is something to be proud of. Witness CobraCam. This is a very clinical description of it, however, as it is "promotional" only inasmuch as it features the members of Cobra Starship. It's the kind of thing a million bands and a billion kids on YouTube try to do but always fail miserably at, because they are simply not funny — or stupid or clever or dedicated — enough to pull it off.
