Ingrid Michaelson "Girls Chase Boys"

I was going to write a post along the lines of "Uh, is this Robert Palmer parody a little late?"

Then I realized that "Addicted To Love" came out in 1986.  Meaning, anyone age 27 or younger (like a large swath of Ingrid Michaelson's audience), wasn't even born when the video was in heavy rotation on MTV.

The parody is so old that it's gonna be completely new to a lot a lot of people.  To some, they may not even realize it is a parody, it's so old.

Thoughts on this?

Hear the song on Youtube.
