Bubb Rubb: "the whistles go WHOOOO!"

Bubb Rubb is the newest Certified Internet Celebrity, and the kind of character you could not invent. And if you did, you would instantly be branded a racist. But truth is the perfect defense against libel, and this site is all about the truth at 24 fps. Really, you can't make this shit up... though in the interest of equal offense, someone has made a "Red Neck Woo Video." Not as funny, but a nice effort.

To make a long story short, Bubb Rubb came to fame after a San Francisco TV newscaster interviewed him (and his little sister, 'Lil Sis) as he was having a "whistle tip" put in the exhaust pipe of his car. For the uninitiated, a whistle tip is just a little punched-metal tab that turns any exhaust pipe into an organ of screeching agony for all those nearby. As this trend reached the Bay Area, the citizens of Oakland were, for the most part, not amused; the tips have since been banned. Which is sad, because they are "just fa' deccarayshun."

The great thing is-- if you watch the full video, not the edited version-- is that the white KRON newscaster speaks at least as strangely as Bubb Rubb. You would swear it's a fake, but no FANSters, it's the real thing.

If you really want to laugh, make sure you also listen to the Woo2 remix.
