This Week in Web Videos: ‘Dad Rap’


Sam Reece and Becky Chicoine are many things. They’re humans, they’re women, they’re writer/creator/actors, and…AND they’re really funny.  Perhaps most of all, though, Sam Reece and Becky Chicoine are Girls with Brown Hair. What does that mean? Well, first, it means they’re brunettes. Obviously. Like…what? Obviously. It also means they’re the duo responsible for an impressive cache of smart, well-written web comedy that’s not getting its due. With just 138 channel subscribers, Sam and Becky are a prime example of top-tier talent being beaten down by the noise of YouTube make-up tutorials. Luckily, Splitsider’s here and we’ve got a promise to make you: once you watch Sam and Becky’s infectious Dad Rap — in which the Girls reprise two spot-on upper middle class dad characters from their series No I Can Do It, Let Me Try — your day will be irreversibly brightened. Then you’ll watch Dad Rap again, and again, and again. Seriously, though, if your day isn’t brightened, come at us (in a friendly, non-threatening way).
