Our BUST-crush, musician Kelis (who’s featured in our Apr/May 2014 issue), and her infamous song “Milkshake” made a special appearance at the recent Scripps National Spelling Bee.
When contestant Sriram Hathwar, 14, was asked to use the word “feijoada” in a sentence, the “pronouncer” Dr. Jacques Bailly read: “While Tabitha discovered that her milkshake brought all the boys to yard …” before he was cut off by an off-camera voice.
Dr. Bailly apologized and said he was reading the wrong sentence, which got a big laugh from the audience.
Check out the awesome clip below:
I don’t know what I love most about this clip: 1) the fact that Sriram was probably 3 or 4 years old when “Milkshake” was released (yeah, that made me feel old), 2) the panicked voice off-camera urging Dr. Bailly to stop reading the sentence, or 3) the name “Tabitha”used as an example, to whose aforementioned yard all the boys were flocking.
I guess we’ll never know what the full sentence was. Also, congrats to co-winner Sriram and Ansun Sujae.
And now for some nostalgia (I had to)!
