Christmas Carols from The Basketball Jones

Our friends at The Basketball Jones have created yet another hilarious (if somewhat creepy) video. If you enjoyed their NBA team love song, you just might get into the Christmas game spirit with this one:

Tiger Woods slow jam; Muppets playing tricks on me

Here are two videos that kept me awake last night as I replayed them again and again. The first is the infamous Tiger Woods voicemail -- chopped, screwed, and smoooooothed out. I'll warn you, it's pretty doggone catchy. "Take your name off your phoooone..." (Hat tip to Steady Burn.)

The second video is completely unrelated but makes for good Friday viewing. A bunch of Muppets do the old Geto Boys song "My mind is playing tricks on me." Warning: contains naughty language and some Muppet nudity. (Hat tip to @injuryrate.)

MTV Jams is actually running my Tiger Woods playlist idea!

Putting aside the fact that I'm totally in the bag for all things MTV Jams related, this is legitimately very cool of them. I can only hope that the blog posts and tweets about this are compiled into some kind of report of anecdotal evidence that Tuma Basa aka @MTVJams is doing the good work with fan outreach.

A few days ago I blogged the idea of having a Tiger Woods-themed set of videos, the centerpiece, of course, being Jazmine Sullivan's "Bust Your Windows."

I got my Twitter peoples on the case brainstorming video ideas, and fellow sports blogger Mike from Steady Burn blogged about it, declaring: "It is a 100% true statement to say that MTV considering a video playlist inspired by Tiger’s crash is the biggest media development in the Tiger Woods crash investigation at this time."

Then today, part 1 actually aired!

Today's set was about Elin Nordegren's scorned lover perspective:
Kelis: "Caught out there" (I hate you so much right now)
Jazmine Sullivan: "Bust your windows"
Blu Cantrell: "Hit 'em up style"

Sunshine Anderson "Heard it all before"

This is quite possibly the second greatest accomplishment of my career (the greatest being when I got Diddy to declare his candidacy for President, of course). And it was well worth the effort of the folks at MTV Jams (really, we're helping them do their work, right?). Sorry MusicChoice, I'm now a lifelong fan of MTVJams, Proactiv commercials and all.

UPDATE: Here's Part 2 that aired Thursday, all from the original list of suggestions!
Kanye West: "Flashing Lights"
Pac Div: "Whiplash"
Snoop Dogg: "Murder was the case"
Public Enemy "911 is a joke"
Wyclef: "Someone please call 911"
