Mhm uh This is tm I with louder.
00:08
When I was younger, I was obviously very awkward.
00:11
You guys know I was shy.
00:13
So when I met my best friend, Mimi, she took all of that and embraced
00:17
it and she's like, it's OK.
00:18
I accept you.
00:19
Thank God Mimi and I met in high school in our drama class in
00:23
ninth grade.
00:23
And at first I did not like her because she was a total teachers
00:26
I was not, I was not a teacher's pet.
00:31
There's a difference between someone who is passionate about
00:35
what they do and about the art of the theater and someone who's
00:38
a teacher's pet.
00:39
She was lazy.
00:40
This is what you would do.
00:42
Um Teacher, I know the answer to that.
00:44
Oh yeah, that's how you do a scene.
00:46
Oh yeah, this is how I'm going to do this.
00:48
And the teacher was always like, wow, Mimi, you're so incredible
00:51
A plus a plus.
00:52
Me, me, she was like Mimi like, oh put your hand down.
00:56
That's not true.
00:57
I didn't raise my hand.
00:58
I just was prepared with my scene work.
01:00
I did my work too.
01:01
No, you didn't.
01:02
This is Laura homework.
01:03
What's homework?
01:04
Oh, we have a scene to do today.
01:07
Where am I?
01:08
Sometimes teacher mumbled.
01:11
Where's food?
01:12
Is there food anywhere?
01:13
Can I have your cheese?
01:15
Can I have your crackers?
01:16
And you always fed me?
01:17
So, thank you.
01:18
You're welcome.
01:19
So then one day the teacher put us in an assignment together
01:23
and I had to go over her house and I was like, oh, great.
01:25
I was already like, great.
01:26
I did not want to work with her because I thought she was kind
01:28
of annoying because the teacher was obsessed with her for
01:30
no reason.
01:31
I have to do this assignment.
01:32
So I get there and she's like, oh, hey, what's up?
01:34
And she was really nice and I was like, whatever, she's nice
01:37
But then I noticed that she had a bunch of Barbies.
01:40
Mind you, we were 15 years old and I'm like, do you still play
01:43
with Barbies?
01:44
She's like, yeah, do you want to play?
01:46
And I'm like, yeah, I want to play.
01:49
You ain't got to ask me twice.
01:50
And so we took out all of her toys out and she had so many Barbies
01:54
I had all the Barbie sets.
01:55
I had the Barbie Grand Hotel.
01:57
I had the Barbie cruise ship.
01:58
I had the Barbie airplane.
01:59
I had the Barbie mcdonald's.
02:00
I had mcdonald's.
02:01
I had a Barbie mcdonald's.
02:02
It was a play set.
02:03
I had the Barbie Pople Pals.
02:06
Hey, are you ok?
02:08
Do you need, do you need one.
02:09
No.
02:10
Ok.
02:10
So then we take out everything and when we're about to start
02:14
we don't play because we're 15 and we realize that it's not
02:17
that fun to play anymore.
02:18
So what we do, we start playing dress up.
02:20
We start, we're 15 years old.
02:23
I know actually the night of Chong Alicious, we were playing
02:26
dress up chal on the eve of Chong.
02:29
I know it's hard to believe.
02:31
But looking at the beautiful women that we are now, but we used
02:35
to be nerds.
02:36
We were, we were, we looked up to Chong.
02:39
Chong guys.
02:39
Were it for us?
02:40
They were cool.
02:41
They were confident they had one paper in their book bag.
02:44
They didn't care about school.
02:46
They all had boyfriends and they had cool outfits.
02:49
They always looked cool.
02:50
They lost their virginity.
02:53
We started making fun of them.
02:54
We're like, you know what, whatever choga they think they're
02:57
so cool.
02:57
Well, guess what?
02:58
They probably put sharpie lip liner on their lips and they
03:01
probably glue their hair with Elmer's glue.
03:02
And we started saying things like that.
03:04
We made it into a song that night song.
03:08
NYC.
03:09
My mom came home that night and she was like, why do you look
03:12
like a prostitute?
03:13
And I was like, oh no, no, it's a funny video we made, we showed
03:15
her and she's like, you're not putting this on the internet
03:17
right?
03:17
I already posted it on youtube.
03:20
I just posted it on youtube so we could share it with our friends
03:22
really easy.
03:23
But before you know, it, every time we were clicking on it,
03:25
it was going up like 500 1000 100,000, we were like, oh my God
03:29
what is happening?
03:31
Someone sent it to a local DJ and then he loved it.
03:34
And then he started playing it on the radio and then it became
03:37
the number one requested song on Power 96.
03:39
They were playing it at clubs in New York.
03:42
Soldiers in Afghanistan.
03:43
They would be like, oh, you guys made us laugh.
03:45
