Let’s get some shoes.
I apologize in advance for the fact that, whether you remember this viral video gem from 2007 or not, this song will be stuck in your head for the rest of the
day week. In “Shoes,” Liam Kyle Sullivan (who now has over 300,000 subscribers) played shoe-obsessed diva/teenager Kelly (as well as Kelly’s father and twin brother). The video was quickly passed around on Myspace (yes, Myspace) and everyone who was anyone could be found quoting it in their best Kelly-inspired Valley girl voice.
If you don’t remember “Shoes” then let’s catch you up to speed! According to the video’s description:
This is the story about a girl who is going to get what she wants, no matter what. She may not be the prettiest girl on the block. She may be a bit overweight. And even though haters pop up left and right, she doesn’t let them drag her down. I hope that we can all draw inspiration from that strength of spirit; to look beyond our own flaws and see that anything is possible.
And guess what? Kelly does indeed get what she wants: shoes.
Oh my God, shoes.
