This morning, I linked to a video of a church doing a version of Justin Timberlake’s “Sexyback” as “Serving Back.”
Well, I think this church might have done it first. And it’s great. They even include my favorite boy band scene, which is the unbuttoned white long sleeve shirt with tank top and wind machine. Plus they wear tuxedos. So romantic and classy. These guys must have done this idea before the other church.
I’ve always been honest about my love of the following things:
1. Using little kids in your song
2. Awkward youth group rap
3. Taking popular secular ideas and putting God flavor on them.
4. Uncomfortable Christian dance moves
And I have finally found a video that combines all four. I am of course talking about the church that took Justin Timberlake’s song “Sexyback” and changed it to a song about volunteering called “Serving Back.” They took the lyrics “I’m bringing sexy back, those other boys don’t know how to act” and instead said “I’m bringing service back, you can’t deny it cause it’s a fact, I think you’re special, keeping the church on track.”
But my favorite line is “Dirty babes, you see this diapers all over the place.” Is it cheesy? Without a doubt, but kudos to the church for mixing it up.
The video only has 15 views right now and was posted yesterday, so maybe it’s fairly new. Maybe you have already seen it. If I could find this posted on Godtube I would link there instead. But until it is listed there, here it is .
The woman doing sign language is my favorite part. She had to be thinking, “If I had a dollar for every time I had to do sign language for a Justin Timberlake parody…”
