Nelly’s Ride Wit Me

Back in Grade 11, a few friends and I innocently made a music video cover of Nelly’s Ride Wit Me. We really weren’t seeking artistic integrity at the time, just seeing what we could do with some video editing and shooting. Also, one of the guys I was working with was incredibly rich (as as example, we once asked his neighbor if we could use his Mercedes in the shoot, to which he replied “Which one?”) so we could actually have some nice cars, etc. Well, we made the video and a year or so ago I posted it on youtube. The rest, they say, is history.

For whatever undecipherable reason, using the youtube search algorithm with the search string “Ride Wit Me” brings our video in at 6th. Because of this strange gift, at the time of this writing, the video itself has attracted over 30,000 views and 64 comments.

I think some of these comments are good examples of the backwaters of internet culture. Here’s a few choice examples:

The video wasn’t interesting. That’s all I can say. I can see most of your commenters are very immature and ignorant with their words, but not interesting is what they basically mean.

you need to learn the difference between fact and racism “brotha”. they were corny and they were white, if they were f@#kin orange i would have said stupid orange boyz,so keelo stop trying to assume some one is a racist against some corny white boyz if you dont know them. u calm down

the term “white boyz” is no different than the “n”-word.
they’re both racial comments and are not acceptable in modern society.
