Proud moments for honest Gujaratis and bigots alike.
Anyway, the point is, there are certain very well known artists, such as Weird Al Yankovic and Jim Carrey (or the entire cast of Saturday Night Live, for that matter), who have been entertaining us since the 80s.
Spurred by his newfound popularity, Devang Patel decided to pursue things on a larger scale, thus spawning Patel Scope I, II and III over the next decade.
Granted that us Indians and originality don’t necessarily go together, for once, one has to acknowledge the finesse of Patel Scope’s production quality. Considering the music videos, replete with visual parodies of all elements, especially the costumes in ‘Challu Girl’ (an ode to Aqua’s ‘Barbie Girl’) and the dance moves in ‘Aye Raju’ (an obvious diss to Wes’ ‘Alane’) as well as the background beats, it is a real wonder why the original composers haven’t filed lawsuits against Mr. Patel.
Cyd The Squyd is vehemently verbose and immensely proud of his own Gujarati heritage. You can hunt him down Here, though.
