It’s a song that has defied the ages.
Sir Mix-a-Lot released Grammy Award-winning hit single “Baby Got Back” back in 1992 and now, whether people like it or not, it’s a popular reference in U.S. culture. To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the song, Sony Music Entertainment will be releasing a smartphone app through iTunes in May of next year.
Here’s the official description listed on the App Store:
“Sir Mix-a-Lot’s Baby Got Back app comes fully-packed with a buttload of hands-on features including the Mix Makeover photo lab, the Ba Dunka Dunk club game, Sir Mix-a-Lot’s Booty Calls, a social media Text Mix and more. As a deluxe visual bonus, the Baby Got Back app includes the old school but still-hot-and-hilarious “Baby Got Back” music video (briefly banned by MTV in 1992).”
Buyers must be at least 17 years old for:
- Frequent/Intense Mature/Suggestive Themes
- Frequent/Intense Profanity or Crude Humor
In one of the app games, users can alter a person’s photo to “desired results.” The instructions even encourage users to send the altered image to Facebook. I can already see the beginnings of another Sir Mix-a-Lot controversy. See an iPhone screenshot below.
Here’s the video that was briefly banned on MTV for those who are feeling a bit nostalgic for the 90′s single.
Here are some recent videos featuring the iconic song.
