Crank Dat Road Runner

How do you get a hit song on the radio these days? Simple, repetitive hip-hop beat? Check. Rapping your name over it? Check. Spark a dance craze with the goofy moves in your video? Check. Suck so bad you spark a whole wave of parodies that are better then the original? Double check.

Rapper Soulja Boy's "Crank Dat (Soulja Boy)" is so ubiquitous that the Youtubers have created so many parodies it's unbelievable. There seems to be a "Crank Dat (Everything)" now. There's crank dat Spiderman, crank dat Batman, crank dat SpongeBob, crank dat Bill Clinton, Crank dat Super Mario, Crank dat Chipmunks...you get the idea.

But one clever group of hip-hoppers has redone the song with new lyrics, and its actually kind of catchy. Here's a video someone did for "Crank Dat (Roadrunner)" by "Concrete Boyz".

Don't say I didn't warn you.
