Cleaned article[edit]

Moved reference to Obama and Matt Wilkening to the popular culture reference section. Deleted diaper commercial reference for lack of citation. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 198.147.139.184 (talk) 21:42, 14 February 2011 (UTC)

Negative Press/Rape[edit]

I distinctly remember seeing a TV news report when this song came out about a woman who was gang raped by a group of men who were chanting the lyrics/chorus of this song at her as they did it, and a lot of subsequent bad press over the incident. Unless my mind is playing tricks on me, this clearly warrants addition into the article, but only if properly cited. TheGoonSquad 11:28, 10 November 2007 (UTC)

Barack Obama is in the video[edit]

at 1:01. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 128.193.239.159 (talk) 21:40, 6 June 2010 (UTC)

There's an internet rumor about a man who sort of looks like Obama. I think it might take something more definite. NegativeK (talk) 23:03, 6 June 2010 (UTC)
  • I think it's worth noting that it is a well known rumor. I agree that stating point blank that Obama was in the video is inappropriate (as it probably isn't him) But the fact that it is a popular rumor is worth noting. --97.124.69.84 (talk) 01:37, 7 June 2010 (UTC)
