One Way To Promote Ed Young’s Menz Conference

The man in these videos is Pace. He works for Pastor Ed Young (You remember Ed, right? Of U.B.U. fame?). A friend tells me he’s Ed’s “right hand man.” And I’m sure there are some days when he’s Ed’s “left-hand man,” too.

Which is big job, I’m sure. Probably bigger than I imagine…

Well, Fellowship Church is gearing up for a big men’s conference… and Pace is really excited about the men’s conference.

In fact, he posted this video yesterday to help promote it. And I thought it was a pretty creative way of marketing to a bunch of men about a conference.

And I thought we could learn something from it…

See? Creative right?

The hat.

The “black man” accent.

The “fellas fellas fellas fellas” intro…

And who wants to miss it? MISS it. Capital I. Capital T. It.

But then, Pace got REALLY creative this morning… and even got one of his bois to help…

Hide your kids.

Hide your wives.

(His boyEE got embarrassed somewhere between the wives and kids…)

But bing your huzzbin

Am I missing something? Is he mimicking a movie role that I haven’t seen?

So… anybody wanna go to d’ menz confruss wid me?

I think you’ll find the second video is a “parody” of this, probably. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y54yESyq6Io

    That almost makes it worse… considering it was about a rape…

Perhaps it is a takeoff of “Ladies, Ladies, Ladies” from the Ladies’ Man? You got me…

MPT doesn’t know about Antoine Dodson?!? I’m shocked. This guy just bought a house off the Gregory Bros remix.

    I actually have seen the video before. But didn’t find it funny, since the overall topic was rape… just sort of stole my ability to laugh…

    maybe the charges have been dropped or something and I just haven’t heard about it…

      here is the real video… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hMtZfW2z9dw

      it was turned into a song and this is why the video went viral and is being used here.

      I agree with you. The entire concept behind the bed intruder song just…makes me ill. ‘Course, this is the culture that regularly uses ‘pimp’ as a source of pride and humor, so what can we expect?

      Siiiigh.

        i think the thing that makes the bed intruder song so funny is that fact that a news team aired it. its not the story thats funny. the story is very so depressing and scary for many. but if you watch the original ‘news aired’ video and pay close to attention to the words used, the body language, etc…its rather comical. and the song is just too catchy to hate.

        The guys behind the “Bed Intruder Song” have been making songs out of broadcast news for quite a while now (Auto-Tune The News). So it’s not like they just cooked up a funny song about rape. It was a popular news clip that was making the rounds.

        That being said, I think that the song is a great big slam to the idiots committing rape and not a glorification, endorsement, or even making light of rape itself.

        Also, it’s reported that they are sharing the profits with him. http://www.bbc.co.uk/newsbeat/10997381

          I’m well aware of ALL of this – I was in on the ground floor with this meme, and I’m familiar with the Gregory Brothers. I’m glad they’re sharing the money with Antoine (who has now bought a house with the money from the song).

          But, it still makes me uncomfortable. The line most quoted (“hide your sister, wife, etc, they rapin’ errbody out here”) does nothing but linguistically cheapen the concept of rape. It turns rape into a joke, even if it’s just by a mere twist of the language. And that is enough to make me not listen to it, even if paying for it from iTunes helps the family – there are other ways that people could have helped him, but in the use of the language, the attempted rape is turned into the butt of a joke. Instead of trying to find the guy, instead of harnessing the power of the internet to try and capture a despicable man (which we’ve seen done countless times), we’ve instead turned what he did into a popular song. And that doesn’t sit well with me.

          When we turn something like that into entertainment, we cheapen the reality of what actually happened.

I HOPE someone sent the people at Ed Young’s church an email.

Jesus Needs New PR, indeed. –> Not a slight against you, MPT. If we met I’m sure we’d be friends.

It’s just…I can’t say what I think of those promos right now.

This is just cheesy church goodness, that’s all.

Some people try hard and the “trying” is obvious even though they want to appears as if they aren’t “trying”.

A. The videos above are stupid.

B. Antoine Dodson, the guy in the news story who basically saved his sister from being raped, used the money he made off of iTunes from the song to move his family out of the projects into a nicer house in a better neighborhood. So, I think some good came out of it.

That’s a bad call, Ripley- er, Pace. With all the sex scandals that have been popping up lately, church may not wanna dabble ironically here. Rip off Justin Beiber like everyone else. Nothing says Men’s Conference like the Beibs.

Reason number 12,583 why we left Fellowship after being there for 10 years. It has turned into nothing but a bunch of goons trying to be Rock Stars for Jesus. Pace (who’s name is really Chris, but he changed it to sound “cooler”) and Ed being the biggest culprits.
