On Vox: Word Up.

There are a million reasons to post the video for Cameo's "Word Up", but today I am sharing this with you because it features LeVar Burton Gettin' Funky!

LeVar is looking like a long-lost member of the Time, and you don't need a VISOR to know that's a sharp look! YES I DID JUST MAKE A [VISOR](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VISOR) JOKE.
If you want to undo the extreme funkiness of this clip (Larry's sportin' the big red codpiece!) then you can inflict the [Ko?n cover of this song](http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wq5DNLyzwfU) upon yourself. It's of the same quality you've come to expect from everything that Ko?n does! That's a nice way of saying they suck! Even Limp Bizkit is the fault of Ko?n, right down to the deliberate spelling error! That's dumber than the [heavy metal umlaut](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heavy_metal_umlaut)! There's a [film](http://weblog.infoworld.com/udell/gems/umlaut.html) about heavy metal umlaut's wikipedia entry! I can't stop shouting about this awful band! I wish I were a wolf so I could gnaw off my own paw![](http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wq5DNLyzwfU)
