Alex Trebek raps your favorite songs on ‘Jeopardy!’—and it’s lit fam
‘Panda, Panda… Panda Panda Panda Panda Panda.’
It’s always painfully awkward when Jeopardy! brings up rap music. We’ve seen host Alex Trebek butcher Drake’s “Jumpman” and completely shit on one contestant’s interest in nerdcore, an act that was met with some resistance online.
But nevertheless, it’s college week on the game show, which means it’s time to break out the skateboard and say “how do you do” to the fellow kids.
Last night’s program included a category called, no joke, “Let’s rap, kids!” I’m not sure what’s more embarrassing: Trebek’s reading of lyrics by Kanye West and Kendrick Lamar or the actual college student who couldn’t identify a Lil Wayne verse that included two identifiers: “Young Money militia” and “Weezy.”
Some genius had the idea to set Trebek’s reading to the actual tracks and spaced out his delivery to sync it to the beats—and it works better than it has any right to. It’ll be hard to hear Desiigner’s “Panda” the same way again.
The YouTube summary says it all: “Jeopardy was lit fam.”
