Watch: Yahoo! parody of Fun's "We Are Young" is an anthem for depressed 33-year-olds
Yahoo!'s "We're Not Young"
The folks over at Yahoo! Studios have delivered an epically messy music video for "We Are Young." The parody isn't quite as funny if you can't relate to the plight of these almost-middle-aged men and women, but as far as "We Are Young" YouTube covers go, this one is easily the best we've heard.
Featuring everything from applying to grad school to starting a blog, being 33 to selling pot, "We're Not Young" makes us glad we're neither 33 nor working at Yahoo! -- it seems like a pretty depressing life. For every clever turn of a lyric in "We're Not Young," there's also one sad sack of a man that makes us feel a little bit better about ourselves. The take-away: if you haven't had your prostate checked yet, use Yahoo!'s search engine to find a doctor -- because Google just isn't old enough to worry about stuff like that yet.
