Rich Raps

Watch This if you can. When this article on Rich Hilfiger came out earlier this month, Watch This became increasingly fascinated by rich rapping (as performed by Hilfiger and other wealthy patrons of identity crisis) and started wondering "once you go rap, how do you go back?". Becoming a young, rich rapper may be as upsetting to your wealthy parents as becoming a child star of low-brow musical theater, but whereas the rich child stage star can chalk it up to a temporary case of the acting bug, the rich child rap entrepreneur has no exit strategy, no clear path back to the life trajectory he inherited from his parents. Of course that's probably exactly the point - going rap is a perfect (and potentially permanent) rebellion against and rejection of the lifestyle your parents' wealth demands of you. The irony is if you're only as good as Hilfiger, you need a lot of money to pretend like it's working.

The Watch This Summer Dance Contest Winner!!!

Watch This is delighted to reveal the winners of the First Annual Watch This Summer Dance Contest! These two guys know that the best way to have fun at a carnival is to join the dance party, and to learn everything you can from anyone wearing t-shirt bling. Then film it so you can send it to Watch This and show the internet how to get down!

This year's winners, Matt S. and the mystery bearded dance king from Massachusetts, will be awarded with custom-made Watch This mix tapes and personally designed t-shirts for use in their future dancing exploits. And they now hold the title of Watch This Champion Dancers!

Thank you!!! to everyone who submitted videos! We hope you'll compete again next summer and keep up the body-movement innovation all year long.

Sunday Suggestion - Divine Rags of Memphis

Today's suggestion comes from Alex in Singapore. Alex could probably beat you in a 50-yard dash if he were running backwards and you were running forwards. He has a masters in economics, speaks three languages, and best of all he found this video and sent it to Watch This. Thanks Alex.
