Al Gore Awkwardly Explains “My Humps” To Tipper

algoremic.jpegWhen it comes to this July’s Live Earth concerts, Al Gore isn’t just organizing the street-teams and working ther merch counters–he’s booking the bands, as well!

Billboard: Any particular bands on your wish list?
Gore: There are a lot of great ones that are already signed up. I recruited the Red Hot Chili Peppers; they told me yes when they came onstage at the Grammys. The Police are on board now. And Madonna’s on board.

Billboard: Any other bands you personally asked to participate?

Gore: Oh, yeah, a bunch of ‘em. I’ve made lots of calls. The Black Eyed Peas. I don’t have the list in front of me, but I’ve talked to a lot of ‘em, and I haven’t gotten turned down yet.

One can only imagine how the Gore-Fergie phoner went down: First he lobbed a few questions about why is always “all up in the videos,” and then launched into a stern warning that–unless we cut greenhouse emissions by forty percent–our London Bridges will truly be going down. “Whatever that means!” Gore joked. “No, seriously, what does that song mean?”

    I suspect that the inevitable comments made by the bands during their sets will be equally ridiculous.

    “Yo, yo, yo… we’re the Black Eyed Peas. Let’s all save the earth because it’s, like, important and stuff.”

    He should get 2 Live Crew and Naughty by Nature.

    This will only be compelling if Gore gets on stage and arhythmically jerks and flops around…

    Something in a fashion that would give MC Rove a run for his money…
