Earlier this year, a 33-year-old man got plastic surgery, valued at $100,000, to make his face look like that of pop star Justin Bieber, a move that was deemed kind of creepy but altogether innocuous.
Then came his single.
Sheldon, along with two other Botoxed-up acquaintances, have formed the group the Plastics, with a new song, also called “The Plastics,” now on YouTube.
The tune begins with something out of an infomercial: “Are you one of the boring people who don’t want to be beautiful?” the Plastics ask. “Because everyone can be beautiful — when you’re made of plastic!”
Thus begins our descent into madness, during which Sheldon, along with Kitty Jay and Venus D’lite, sing about the joys of plastic surgery through — what else? — Auto-Tune, because why not up the artificial ante?[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=55Csg0XCGIk]
Kitty Jay sings a bit about her idol, Jennifer Lawrence, having decided to take on her appearance due to her standing as a “perfect specimen,” while D’lite is all about aping Madonna. Of course, when one knows the look each is going for, everything makes a little more sense — but only slightly.
