First off, I'd bet you my life Cody Bellinger doesn't knows who Kenny G is. cody-bellinger-didnt-know-who-jerry-seinfeld-is-until-this-weekend.html
Secondly, as soon as I saw this tweet I just lit up. Big old belly laugh from Ole Dozie on this one. Seeing Kenny G in 2017 make reference to one of the most polorizing memes on the internet right now hopping around on a trampoline like a 8 year old girl at her best friend's birthday party makes me laugh. Sorry.
I can't lie though..
I really just know about Kenny G because he's Kenny G. That simple. Enough said. To me Kenny G is just famous for being Kenny G. Sure he's a famous saxophone player, but nobody under the age of like 27 knows Kenny G for his music. He's just famous for being Kenny G. Some guys all you need to know is the name. There's a lot of guys out there who technically are Kenny G's, but they aren't Kenny G. You don't think of them when you hear Kenny G. You think of curly fries and music that our aunts listened to in her 30's. You think of Kenny G.
Kenny G is just that dude who has ridiculously curly locks that after 61 years still won't quit! (obviously I looked up how old he is, I'm not some freak who knows how old Kenny G is off the top of my head), and that he plays the hell out of a saxophone.
Now did I know the name of a single Kenny G song before 20 minutes ago?
But that's the thing about Kenny G, and really all pop culture in general, you really can sound a lot smarter than you really are by knowing even the most minute facts about something. That's all it takes for you too to have found this tweet hilarious.
Secondly, I also know that I'm officially a Kenny G guy for life. His music could be absolute shit (which I doubt because the saxophone is fantastic instrument), doesn't matter, I'll defend him to the death. You don't make fun of Kenny G in front me. No way.
Any out of date celeb who is smart enough to hop on the latest ULTRA_DANK MEME is cool in my book. Kenny G knows people aren't thinking about him everyday. It's not 1992 anymore. He's gotta strike when the iron is hot and he realized that meme play is the perfect move. So congrats Kenny G you just gained a new fan for using twitter for exactly what it is designed to do. Congratulations. And for those of you that have read until this point, and for some reason still have no idea what this is even talking about. It's about Kenny G making reference to "The Floor is ______" memes which of course play off the old game "the floor is lava" in which....you know what I'm just gonna pepper a few in here, I think it's pretty simple to understand.
The floor is clarinets. Kenny fuckin G man. Enough said. And yes if you were wondering, yes, I too was absolutely amazed by how still Kenny G's curls remained in that picture. You'd think gravity doesn't play favorites and still applies to Kenny G. I know he's on the way down, but still you'd think a little wing under those feathers would create a little flow flight.
Do you think Kenny G actually hates clarinets? Or that he just needed something just funny enough get in on the meme reference to make this tweet gold? Because I'm going to just live in a world where I believe that Kenny G is a saxophone guy to the death guy and fucking hates clarinets. And clarinet people hate Kenny G like poison. It's like Rome v Sparta in the woodwind community. Need more beef in the instruments you played for 2 years in middle school community. That's how you try to attract more people to your elevator music.
