“Why? Why, Manti? Why lie?”
Manti Te’o sat down with the friendlier version of Barbara Walters last week, Katie Couric, to discuss his fake girlfriend scandal. So of course it’s become an auto-tune jam. The Katie/ Manti duet first verse is good enough, but the real standout is Manti’s father. Channeling Coolio, Manti’s dad spits out rhymes like…
“Believe me, I woulda whooped his ass so tenderly… she was so beautiful and they broke out into song just like a Disney musical.”
It gets the seriousness of the situation across, but maintains the innocence of a confused young man with the Disney reference. Brilliant.
