Alanis Morissette Does Black-Eyed Peas Spoof

I wasn't quite sure whether BEP themselves weren't spoofing their genre, the whole hip-hop obession with sex and money...explicitly sexual degrading portraits of women and ostentatious love of money and self. But, even if that's so, they don't get let off the hook in any way given that most of their young audience will not see their videos as anything more than a validation of hip-hop culture with all its -isms. So, I like Canadian Alanis Morisette all the more for showing them to be the fools that they are, for "dissin 'em", in this video.
