Hey Ya for the Weekend

What do these two men have in common?

If you said “absolutely nothing” you’d be almost right. Despite their obvious differences in skin color, size, wealth and sweet plaid jackets, these two souls are inextricably linked by the unifying force that is “Hey Ya”. While everyone knows Outkast’s version that continues to blow up dance floors around the world, good old Obadiah does a nice version himself, check out the video below. What’s more impressive is that he’s Amish!*

 As a rule, never underestimate a large, bearded redheaded man.

Listening to: This song
Last ate: Tri-tip sandwich

*I’m only assuming that based on his name, but it must be true.

    I have been loving that version ever since I stumbled across it while searching for random acoustic covers on YouTube. It’s available for purchase on iTunes now (or you can find it for free).

    Did this make it onto the bedside pad?
