Haha, wow. This song.
Even more wow: that mandolin skill.
One of the main reasons I visit this site is to see what poeTV people are searching for in YouTube.

The Rednexus of porch and hood.
I hate when people who aren't electronic or heavily visually-based performers give other acts shit about lip syncing. In an environment where so much can go wrong, and you want the performance to go off without a hitch, then you use some canned performances as back up. If the act is visual (or lazy) or dance-based, then the lip syncing becomes par for the course to maintain the performance.
Like my brother "Katy Perry lip synced at the Super Bowl so she sucks". Oh, I'm sorry. Did you not see the multi million dollar stage show and dance choreography going on in that show? I'm sorry if it's a little more important to focus on all of that going off without a hitch than it is to focus on live vocals when your singer may have a sore throat or any number of performance issues.
That said, I enjoy acts that both sing for real and lip sync.
That said, Rednex is just dancing around cashing a paycheck and more power to them.
Yeah, I've always fully respected Rednex for not giving a single fuck about being Serious Artists.
Singing well and dancing well are somewhat mutually exclusive activities.
Fortunately, neither was a problem here. This song is as obnoxious now as when it first sprang forth from the devil's asscrack.
Just so all of us can branch out from "appreciating" this song, here're some links to some of their other work:
"Football is our Religion"
"Innit For the Money"
"Spirit of the Hawk"
The history of the group is worth reading, it really explains a lot...
5 for evil!
As an American, I am deeply triggered by this problematic cultural appropriation. ;__;

If a complete different group of doofuses appeared on stage, being introduced as Rednex, and proceeded to jig around and lip synched this song, would anyone really notice it's not the real band?
Rednex literally put the band up for sale, lock stock and barrel: http://www.billboard.com/biz/articles/news/global/1323619/rednex-o n-sale-for-15-million
Hahah just look at their lineup changes over the years on wikipedia...21, more if you count spinoffs.
