Have you been wondering what happened to Patrice Wilson, the architect behind earworms like “Friday” and “It’s Thanksgiving”? Well, he’s apparently been busy getting ripped, and his latest release is… well, it’s a release.
Wilson, known for a string of increasingly bizarre, made-to-enrage videos featuring pre-teen pop stars, is back with “Beautiful,” and this time he’s the star. All of Wilson’s “hits” focus on a very specific topic, and we quickly learn that “Beautiful” is about pregnant women, their beauty, Wilson’s abs, and lots of colored paint. At least we think it’s paint? (Editor’s note: We hope it’s paint.)
When we spoke with Wilson last year, he acknowledged his “haters are there, 80 percent, but then there are 20 percent fans. And you’ll get the haters to become lovers.” “Beautiful” currently has more than double the number of dislikes than likes on YouTube, so it seems everything’s in order here.
