Paul Ryan featured in hilarious Bad Lip Reading video

“You ever have a butt cheek problem in the morning?” Paul Ryan asks viewers in the new Bad Lip Reading spoof released Tuesday on YouTube.

The video is one of many humorous and nonsensical voice overs created by the YouTube channel Bad Lip Reading. With more than 400,000 subscribers and 74 million video views, the channel has become an Internet sensation, churning out hits mocking Twilight, The Hunger Games and Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used to Know.”

In the Ryan video, formatted as a personal diary, the voice over tells viewers about his band, Steak Baby, and sings part of their first single “Quench Your Heartbeat,” featuring lyrics such as “I’ll make a sandwich / I’ll help a moose.” The GOP vice-presidential candidate also laments an unexpected interruption from running mate Mitt Romney and gives numerous suggestions for a new band name after Steak Baby is scratched. Sadly, this video is far more enjoyable to watch than Ryan’s real Google+ Hangout last month.

Ryan is not the only candidate to get featured on the BLR channel. President Barack Obama has a video, as does Vice President Joe Biden. Romney was featured a year ago, but then given another video in August of this year.

At the time of this posting, one of the top two comments on Ryan’s BLR spoof advised viewers not to eat or drink while watching so as to avoid choking. The other top comment asked for a full-length track of “Quench Your Heartbeat.” With another comment calling for a remake of the debates, you can bet this won’t be the last Bad Lip Reading video this election cycle.
