Mom Seeks Lil Wayne Impersonator for Her Blind Son
Since it would be pretty difficult to book Lil Wayne for her son's birthday party, a Washington, DC mom took a different route: seeking a Lil Wayne impersonator. However, there's a twist: her son is blind. Bet you were wondering why this story is filed under "strange". Indeed, the impersonator can look nothing whatsoever like Weezy, but just has to sound like Weezy. Easy? Maybe not.
Blogs that got hold of this story have definitely laid on the snark, dissing the mom for trying to "trick" her son, but there's no evidence in the ad that she's really trying to convince him that the real-life Lil Wayne is swinging by the family crib.
Finally, a chance to kickstart your rap career and perpetrate fraud on a 16-year-old blind kid, all at the same time.
The story actually strikes me as quite sweet, even as the poster takes a swing at some slang. Perhaps, I mean, just maybe it's possible that this is a mom who really loves her son and wants to give him a kick-ass birthday party.
Yes, this is a real ad: the opening sentence strikes me as clearly facetious.
Serious inquiries only, this is very important to my family. Young Money Baby!
But I wonder: are there a great many Lil Wayne impersonators out there? I've never seen or heard of any, but that may just mean I'm looking in the wrong places.
