You're A Jerk.

Here's something you don't know about unless you live in LA or are 15. Jerkin.' I read about it in the physical Sunday LA Times. What's harder to believe...that I read an actual newspaper or that this video has been up since May 22nd & has 339,600+ views? Most jerk music is DIY (hell yeah indie rock) and the kids make it at home. They don't practice or choreograph. That shit is weak. It's all improv. They go home, cut it, & throw it on youtube.

Go Go Power Rangers from Hamilton High...

The song in this one by Vixenz Ent! is SO raunchy (but hey its pretty good)...

and New Boyz from Sierra Vista High just made this video for their song, 'You're a jerk." They recorded it themselves, but currently its getting about 60 spins per week on power 106 in LA thanks to DJ Carisma says LA times. Good story. I'm backing it.
