My daughter and I love this song, my wife hates it. She can’t get past this guy’s off-key voice. Boo to her. The Biz has a good sense of humor.

The original video.

UTRECHT, Netherlands (AP) — Dutch police say a man who pushed his exposed buttocks against a restaurant window as a joke was injured when the glass broke and lacerated his behind.

Authorities say a man, 21, and two others had run down a street Sunday morning with their pants pulled down. The man pushed his behind against the window of a restaurant when it broke and cut him.

The injured man was treated for his injuries at a nearby hospital. The cafe owner decided not to press charges after the men agreed to pay for the broken window.
