Thanksgiving will soon be upon us, which means family, food and (dys)fun(ction). If the holidays stress you out, don’t worry. Your pals at Logo TV are here with this hilarious, ridiculous music video that encourages you to “Twerk Your Turkey.” Don’t let the holiday commotion make you crazy, just do like Miley and shake your yams – everything will be fine.
This now viral video was conceived by Shawn Hollenbach, Logo’s head of social media, who also composed and sings the track. It’s directed by T Kyle MacMahon of RealityTVGIFs, who has magically made a turkey twerk in a way that will never leave you. When I asked MacMahon how he got his turkey to twerk, he told me, “We gave her $1.29 to buy Miley’s “We Can’t Stop” on iTunes and that was just her reaction.” If you’re a fan of RuPaul’s Drag Race, this song will be your new anthem and you’ll be showing this video to everyone you know. The geniuses at Logo aren’t the only ones with twerking turkey jokes this year, though. My friend and fellow comedian Jess Wood recently tweeted: “I’m making a Twerky this year for Thanksgiving. It’s all white meat but wishes it was all dark.” Hey-oh! Happy Turkey Day!
