In true “laugh to keep from crying” fashion, the discussion about whether Mary J Blige’s Crispy Chicken Wrap commercial was racist, beneath our beloved Queen of R&B, or just bad, has given way to a dang catchy cover version, the desire to randomly blurt out the ad’s lyrics, and jokes for days.

The sketch comedy troupe Second City has thrown its hat into the ring with a spoof. The “leaked and unaired” versions of Mary J. Blige’s Burger King commercials won’t help get the song out of your head (especially if you’ve made it your ringtone…not that anyone has done that…ahem). But, hey, maybe you can replace the old lyrics with some new, even more black-targeted-advertising-typical yet absurd ones:

Between the stepping and the slavery bit…sheer foolishness!

    Damn. Hahahaha. Damn.

    damn, why didn’t my comment go through? too many curse words again?

    But, seriously, LMAO! I mean, they added greens, chitlins, cornbread, a 40oz of KoolAid, and being ashy all into one song about CRISPY CHICKEN! I love it!

    I’m salty, though, because I had JUST gotten that crispy chicken song out of my head, and now it’s back!

    i can’t decide on whether or not i’m offended at this but sadly, i am laughing.

  • mamareese

    Didn’t laugh but I thought it was entertaining. I guess it wasn’t funny to me because there shouldn’t be feeling of racism towards the commerial. Mary’s singing was just bad is all..

  • Bee

    Nope. I was somewhere between offended and bored with this video. End of story: Durand Bernarr’s BK Crispy Chicken cover owned it, and I will be singing his jingle for many weeks to come.

    “We take foodstampsss” LOL this was really funny! Anyone else peep the pic of Biggie bobbing up and down in the corner?

  • Nigerian sista

    LOLLL!! We take food stamps!!

  • Kay

    The frat stepping made me spit juice…rotfl *I am so ashamed of this laughter*

  • http://www.purplekeychain.blogspot.com purplekeychain

    YES!!!! I didn’t see it until I’d watched the video about 4 times, because I couldn’t stop laughing hard enough.

    But wait, why is it that the brothers are the only ones who don’t know what the chicken wrap is? HAHAHA!

    BRING YOUR HOMIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I wasn’t going to read this article, but then someone’s comment got my attention. While I didn’t laugh at the video, I did smile to myself, mainly because of how ‘Mary’ kept magically popping up whenever someone mentioned the sandwich.

  • TypicalBlackWoman…

    Yes, the frat stepping got me too…lololololololol

    This was FUNNI. No need to say I’m laughing to mask crying. People you don’t need to validate humor. Be merry!

  • ko

    I am slain. This is perfect. “Don’t care what you heard, chicken’s all Negros eat!”

  • mikey kun

    this was funny

    That was hilarious. The crazy thing is, the level of offense that people had at the real commercial, you would think that this is what they were getting upset about.
