“Baby Got Back” Day

“I like big butts and I cannot lie!” Fox & Friends Weekend co-hosts Alisyn Camerota, Dave Briggs, and Clayton Morris could not resist these infectious strains of Sir Mix-a-Lot’s “Baby Got Back.” As the tempting tune played, the F&F trio got off the curvy couch and did their booty dance. Even conservative columnist Cal Thomas couldn’t restrain himself.

After a segment on the controversial Burger King commercial that celebrates Spongebob to the altered lyrics of “Baby Got Back” (e.g., “I like square butts and I cannot lie”), the co-hosts began to animatedly move to the music. Then Aly and Dave stood up and started jauntily gyrating with their backs to the audience as they segued to meteorologist Rick Reichmuth.

It got even more spirited when Rick’s weather report concluded: All three co-hosts  got up and did their booty boogie. However, wisely, Dave and Clayton backed away and gave Aly the floor. She did not disappoint: The Italian dish happily became the camera’s cynosure and the Italian dish saucily shook her groove thing with reckless abandon.

As to Cal, he was caught earlier doing a few disco moves to “Baby Got Back” as he sat in his chair awaiting his on-air appearance.** After playing the vid for the audience, interviewer Dave apologized for doing that to him. Cal responded, “No, no, it’s great; it’s fun; [and] it shows that white people have rhythm, too.”

    Hey Jake and guys and gals,

    Jake, great job on the website. I recently discovered Fox and Friends and I absoultely and throughly enjoy it. Well, I first started watching the weekend version. Dave and Clayton are personable and amusing. They are personable, amusing, and entertaining, There seems to be a kind of friendly sibling rivalry there. Alisyn is like the big sis at the centre of the show. My only gripe is that the sweepstakes for Fox and Friends Breakfast is not open to overseas viewers.

    Have to admit those silly butt movements forced a smile. Nothing like a good butt dance in the morning. {\} {|} {/} {|} {\}

    Thanks, David. The trio are fun. I see your point on the sibling rivalry between Dave & Clayton. As to Aly, she’s the beautiful captain of the F&FW ship. With regard to your gripe, why not write them at friends@foxnews.com? Welcome to Carpe Diem comments!

    Al, seems like they are getting a mite more comfortable in their own skin, eh?

  5. Al Says:

    It does appear to be so, and they’re working as a team. It’s watchable again.

    They may be watchable…..but are still not “must-see TV” for me.
