Today is my 24th birthday, so I made a song about it:
OT: "I'm 24" Music Video
Besides the settling down part, this song is pretty much my life.
1988? Dayum I feel old. I can remember UM games on the radio from back then.
24 is when it all changes. Horrible hangovers. A lazy metabolism. Coming to grips with real life. Despair. But at least there's good beer.
I hate how true this is.
The only good thing is you develop a taste for expensive beer and whiskey, but you actually have the money to pay for them.
im 23... but born in 88... thanks for ruining my perception of getting older. :/
This is so true.
As a 25 year old: This rules...
I turn 24 next week, and I'm not looking forward to it at all. Great job on the video though.
Wow, it's kind of terrifying when something hits home like that. I'm 23 and well on my way to becoming a thousandaire. Highlight of my week last week? Buying Oberon. Highlight of my week this week? Buying a Kindle Fire with an Amazon gift card and Discover cashback and looking forward to downloading Game of Thrones to it when it gets here.
Ugh, I think I'll go crawl in a hole.
At least you get a piece of that Walk of Shame Shuttle cash right?
with decent transitions. Has anyone ever told you that you look like Seth Gold from Hardcore Pawn.
I was going to say Henrik Zetterberg.
Sidenote: When I typed in Hank Zetterberg to make sure that's who I was thinking of, it of course suggested Zetterberg wife. Wow. If I were you I'd try to pull some 6th Day action and go take her out to dinner. I'm 24 as well and I would most certainly settle down with her.
Edit: Sidenote to that sidenote: Obviously after discovering Hank's wife I found myself on various hockey wag lists (worth the time) I discovered that our very own Mike Comrie is married to my childhood crush Hilary Duff. Go blue Mike, Go blue.
28 and I party.
My name's Rod and I like to party.
Man, pools are perfect for holdin' water.
I knows it's cliché to say this, but your stuff is so funny because you poke fun at things that are absolutely true. Really nice job, Pat.
If you keep going, one day you're going to get paid to do stuff like this. Does your current work involve anything creative like this or is this something you do on the side for now?
I'm doing mostly freelance video work right now. I'll be going on tour with Hoodie Allen and doing his videos for his spring tour which starts in a couple of days. Hoping to find an actual writing/videomaking job within the next couple of months, but who knows.
Congrats on the Hoodie Allen gig! He's pretty awesome and will hopefully hit mainstream soon. It's cool that you'll be a part of that happening!
...I graduated from UM in '88! (whole different song needed for that one)
One for 1974 grad? One of us gray hairs!
Way to redeem yourself after "Sons and Daughters".
I turn 24 in July....and this is pretty spot on. Well done, Pat
Happy birthday, dude. I'll be 24 in about a month and a half. Not sure if I should be looking forward to it or not.
Enjoy. I wish I was still around that age. At age 30 you finally discover the beer belly that you spent the last 10+ years working on, and you actually start looking at life insurance policies and financial advising services. The highlight of my weekend? Cutting the grass and washing the vehicle, one of which is a fucking minivan. OK, end of rant, nice job. Did you do the beat too? It slaps, or goes hard or whatever the young whipper snappers say nowadays.
No, I bought the beat from someone else.
"...one of which is a fucking minivan." --> I LOL'ed
I spent my 24th birthday hungover from my wedding the night before. Also how I spent the day after my 24th birthday.
...a decade ago, this song sort of makes me wish I was 24 again, except rather than going back to the shitty technical support job I had then while I was still working on the MBA, I would elect to keep my management position so I could actually afford the Bell's being funneled into everyone at the celebration.
If I turn back the clock, I want my access to decent beer to be unaffected. Cool video!
They wouldn't check mine when I was a freshman. You should feel really good about that!
23 brought me diabetes, so I'm actually super pumped for 24 to pay me back a little bit.
I turn 54 tomorrow and I guarantee not one lyric will be the same when you add 30 years to the song. I guess I'm in the "I'm old, but not that old" category, since I'm not 60! Look at it this way...you will be able to shop at Whole Foods, you can buy even better beer and keep it in your own mancave beer fridge and you'll relive your days at Michigan vicariously through your children like I do.
It's probably partly due to the name, but you remind me a lot of Pat from College Humor. How you look and the type of comedy.
I'm turning 24 in like 3 months. I feel kind of old now that I'm exiting the "college aged" range
I'm 24 and just realized I suck. :( Great video though, as always.
This video is hilarous bro. I have sent this to all of my friends...well done. That must have taken you forever.
Just want to point out that I just saw this on the Tosh.0 blog and on iwastesomuchtime. Getting faaamooooous!
