If you're bored...

So a buddy of mine is trying to get on the Ellen show. Apparently she's been hosting this "bathroom concert series" where people send in videos of themselves singing a song to Ellen from their bathrooms. She picks the best videos and she's been showing them daily, and his got picked.

Now she's turned it into a contest, and the winner gets to come on the show and sing. So if you're bored and you want to do me a small favor and vote for him, it's here. It takes a while to load, but his name is Brennin Hunt, and if you could give him a quick click, I'd appreciate it. His song is called "I'll Make Love to You." When she played it on the show, she did a rebuttal song where she lip-synced "Never Gonna Get It" while holding a picture of him. I've never been an Ellen fan, but she went up a few notches when I saw that.

He's an upcoming singer/songwriter that I think sounds a bit like Edwin McCain. He's also got a myspace page here if you want to check out some of his more original tunes. Thanks!

ps - I promise I'll be back with something funny this weekend. I have a few things cooking.

Update: Brennin is doing really good. He's # 2 on the show's comments board, and #1 on the show's music comment board, by about 200 people. Second only to Pink, which is probably a good thing because I'm pretty sure she could kick his ass.


  1. That is pretty classic. Ya gotta love those way over the top Boyz II Men songs (or whoever that was). I had a guy in his 60's that worked for me once. On his anniversary, he shared with the staff that he had been working on singing that song to his wife. Needless to say-- TMI.

    Your friend really does have a great voice, and obviously a sense of humor, too. Certainly people have been discovered in weirder ways than that-- who knows?

    I went and checked it out. What an amazing voice! I placed my vote for your friend and also watched Ellen's "rebuttle". It's featured on her page. That's great for him!

    I've been reading your blog for about a year now and this is my first posting. I kow I can always count on you for a good laugh! Thanks for being there for me. ;o)
    Have a great weekend!

    Awesome. I voted for your buddy--keep us posted, eh?

  4. In case you're keeping track...

    Went, listened, and voted. Best of luck, Brennin!

  5. This is awesome! I actually caught that show when I was visiting my mom this week, and thought it was hilarious. I just voted for him without even listening to the others, because he's good and it was so damned funny.

    Keep us posted on how he does, please.

    Small world - I saw that episode of ellen and thought that exchange was funny. Good singer. I just might vote for him even though you removed the "cute" picture of you from your blod that I used to enjoy as punishment for gay ole me saying I liked it.

  7. Ha! I didn't remove it for that reason. I mean, initially as a joke I did, but then I decided that since things were a little rocky at work it would be better to be slightly more anonymous.

  8. He's great! Got my vote...

  9. I'm totally shallow-- your friend is HOT! I'm rethinking my vacation... hmmm... Tennessee? yep.

  10. I voted for him :)

  11. He got my vote because he's so cute.

  12. Ok, I done voted. I used to think Ellen's show was painfully bad, but now I think it's just painfully mediocre.

    I watched that show when he was featured and I haven't laughed that hard in a long time! Totally voted for him and please keep us posted on the results.

    I watched that episode. Hi song was great. Holding the old pic of her was funny.

    Her comeback to him was so clever.

    Good luck to Brennan.

    Thanks for the Brennin update. I've voted several times but I didn't see anything on the site about the end date or how the contestants are doing.
