In order to celebrate a cheerleader competition victory, Memphis spirit squad member Marina Barrett engaged in a celebration that looks like a cross between a seizure and a full-body dry heave. Throw in her speed metal head-bobbing and hand signal, and Snooki from J Shore style hair poof, and this video is somewhat amusing.
But the probably baked dudes who posted the video turned this mildly amusing vid into an internet sensation that is likely to end up a “Web Redemption” on Tosh.O six months from now.
Daniel Tosh and Marina Barrett are truly meant to collaborate.

What actually makes this video REALLY funny, and therefore extremely popular is listening to Cheech and Chong (or Beavis and Butthead, or Harold and Kumar- it all depends on your generation of pot humor) giggling like schoolgirls as they contstantly rewind and play the clip. Her bad dancing gets funnier as you see it numerous times and listen to video uploaders’ laughter.
I’ll be shocked if they weren’t stoned while watching this.
