Well, it looks like the effects of Barack Obama's nuanced speech on race relations — "the most honest speech on race in America in my adult lifetime," according to pundit Andrew Sullivan —are already being felt in the pop-punk constituency. All Time Low actually seem to exist in a sort of Colbertian post-race world where poking fun of hip-hop video stereotypes is no more dangerous or transgressive than dressing a midget in a Celtics leprechaun suit or having a three way tongue twisting session with a ferret. It's certainly juvenile, no doubt, but "Poppin' Champagne" is certainly less offensive than even a semi-clean edit of the Ludacris video "Pussy' Poppin." --> watch "Poppin' Champagne"
All Time Low "Poppin' Champagne" (Hopeless)
