The way the internet is set up these days, going viral has arguably become much easier now than it ever was before. However, because of this, it takes unique creativity to put out something with viral potential that will really stand out among the rest of the things getting shared around the internet on a daily basis.
Toronto comedian @iamTresor has already figured out how to separate himself from the rest. On his Twitter and Instagram pages, he often features skits of himself making parodies of several different genres. Skits like “Afrobeat songs be like,” “Dancehall songs be like,” “Soca songs be like,” etc., poke fun at the simplicity of many of these songs, while somehow creating what actually has the potential to be a banger of his own in the process.
The latest viral skit from the comedian puts a dancehall twist on Playboi Carti’s hit single “Magnolia.” Instead of the original beat produced by Pi’erre Bourne, the comedian swaps it for a classic dancehall riddim from the mid 2000s. The result is a hilarious spin on what “Magnolia” could have sounded like if Playboi Carti was from Jamaica—a follow up to his previous skit of the same format, flipping A$AP Ferg’s “Plain Jane.” The hilarious skit received so much positive feedback that he even recorded a full version of his song to share on SoundCloud and YouTube.
Watch the skit below.
