Alanis Morissette, the female voice of the 90’s music scene, once did a cover of the Black Eyed Peas smash hit “My Humps” and yes, it’s just as bad as you think it is.
But before we get into that, we need to understand what was happening in her life at the time. The year was 2007. She had just split with her then fiancé… RYAN FREAKING REYNOLDS. Am I the only one who didn’t realize they were a thing? They met in 2002, got engaged in 2004, and split in February 2007.
After the split, Alanis was devastated. According to an interview with the Orange County Register, she said that she flew to London for 12 days and wrote 12 songs. She came back, met with a music producer, wrote 12 more songs…. and recorded the cringiest video of all time.

Now to be fair to Alanis, if I lost Ryan Reynolds, I’d be getting real weird, too. He’s perfection.
