Lyrics:
I wanna be a billionaire so fucking bad
Buy all of the things I never had
Uh, I wanna be on the cover of Forbes magazine
Smiling next to Oprah and the Queen

Oh every time I close my eyes
I see my name in shining lights
A different city every night oh
I swear the world better prepare
For when I’m a billionaire

Yeah I would have a show like Oprah
I would be the host of, everyday Christmas
Give Travie a wish list
I’d probably pull an Angelina and Brad Pitt
And adopt a bunch of babies that ain’t never had shit
Give away a few Mercedes like here lady have this
And last but not least grant somebody their last wish
Its been a couple months since I’ve single so
You can call me Travie Claus minus the Ho Ho
Get it, hehe, I’d probably visit where Katrina hit
And damn sure do a lot more than FEMA did
Yeah can’t forget about me stupid
Everywhere I go Imma have my own theme music

Oh every time I close my eyes
I see my name in shining lights
A different city every night oh
I swear the world better prepare
For when I’m a billionaire
Oh oooh oh oooh for when I’m a Billionaire
Oh oooh oh oooh for when I’m a Billionaire

I wanna be a billionaire so fucking bad

I'd cheerlead for you any day, you know that, right?

Seriously, though, this gets better every time I watch it. *is mesmirized*

Also, some things I forgot to flail about earlier--the scene with Christy with the lyric, "since I've been single"? Way too perfect, I don't even know, dude. You're inspiring. And the "close my eyes" when Mark is praying is so damn apropos, and the fact that you used that clip where Eduardo is dancing just made me so happy.

...so, basically, all the adoration I've felt all along, in a whole new comment box!

Aww, you are amazing. I don't think I would have finished this so quickly if you weren't squeeing about it along the way, so it was good motivation! <3

And I originally didn't have the clip of Eduardo dancing in there, but I was thinking all along I had to put it in somewhere. Like the laptop slamming, there are certain clips of this movie that just HAVE to be used in every vid or it's blasphemous.

Also, your comment reminded me to put the lyrics under the cut. It makes much more sense when you can understand what they're saying!

I feel like I haven't seen that clip in many vids--maybe because I've mostly watched angsty ones before this? But I do agree that it ought to be in pretty much every single one ever. It worked with the music, too, which was nice.

Oooh. *dances* Just watched it twice.

Awww, I got a mention. *spins you around*

You used the uncensored version :O I haven't actually heard it. I'm curious...did you debate over which version to use? (I wonder if the censored version might be more cracky? Just a thought.)

Some of the match-ups were hilarious ie. Eduardo being the Queen, sadface!Chris as Brad Pitt (he is a looker!) The repeat of the zip line was kinda lol too. A great transition at 48-9 secs too. Mark closing his eyes ahaha. Wardo dancing was a must!

Some of the clips could have fallen a little tighter to the beat but nice crack going. So glad you did this! <3

I didn't, actually! It was just the version I happened to have-- I noticed that it wasn't censored but I didn't think anything of it. Interesting suggestion-- I kind of want to try lining it up with the censored version now.

And thank you!! I'm glad you enjoyed it. :)

Well I thought the "fricken" was lol because it sounds like he's trying to be hardcore but it comes off more as whining xD

No problem! It was a fun watch :D

Great work!

Thank you!! <3 I love Sean too, secretly (though I guess it's not much of a secret because I made a vid about him). JT is just so ridiculous.

I was kind of skeptic about JT as an actor at first, because too many musicians or models try and a lot of them fail. Not to mention I was never a big fan of him or NSYNC in general. But he completely convinced me. He's just so awesome. ;)

I am just amazed at how he went from being in a boy band to being in an Aaron Sorkin film almost seamlessly. Who else can even do that? I'm usually skeptical of singer-actors too but he can definitely pull it off.
