We love Usher's hit song OMG, but did he actually steal it's inspiration from Homer Simpson? Say it ain't so!
The Simpsonâ€™s song dates back to 2003 when Homer attempts to write a Christmas carol in an episode called Dude, Where's My Ranch?. A DJ at a popular Jackson, Mississippi radio station discovered the similarities, and decided to splice the TV show and music video together to post on YouTube, prompting hundreds of comments.
They really arenâ€™t that far off. In OMG Usher is heard singing:
- â€œHoney got a booty like pow, pow, pow. Honey got some boobies like wow, oh wow.â€
While Homerâ€™s beat is similar:
- â€œChristmas in December, wow wow wow. Give me tons of presents, now now now.â€
Check out the Usher/Simpson's OMG music video mix below:
We have to admit they do sound alike, but we're betting this is just a random coincidence!
