The Government = We Shut That Down!

The new Miley Cyrus We Did Stop - SNL highlight video has gone viral making headlines in the news media as the Nation still awaits an end to the 2013 Government shutdown that began on October 1st, 2013. The SNL Miley Cyrus We Did Stop video offers the nation a bit of comical relief in the midst of so much uncertainty in the government during the shutdown of 2013. It seems the political leaders in Congress have cut off salaries to hundreds of thousdands of workers and furloughed (delayed) the pay of thousands more because they can't agree on Obamacare and budgeting decesions. Ironicly the political leaders and Congressmen are still being paid during the shutdown - WTF!? Oh well at least one good thing has come out of the government shutdown of 2013 - the hilarious SNL Miley Cyrus We Did Stop Video! The video is a parody of the hugely popular and viral Miley Cyrus video from earlier this year, "We Can't Stop" portraying a comical party with the Speaker of the United States House of Representatives, John Boehner (Republican representing Ohio), and Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (Republican representing Minnesota).

In the We Did Stop - SNL highlight video, John Boehner and Michele Bachmann (portrayed by Miley Cyrus) are shown partying hard and celebrating the government shutdown with other Republicans at a raucous house party raver. The iconic Repblican elephant is shown throughout the SNL We Did Stop video in many hilarious scenes (Political cartoonist Thomas Nast was responsible for the Republican Party elephant. In a cartoon that appeared in Harper's Weekly in 1874, Nast drew a donkey clothed in lion's skin, scaring away all the animals at the zoo. One of those animals, the elephant, was labeled "The Republican Vote." That's all it took for the elephant to become associated with the Republican Party.)

The We Did Stop video shows a worried Barrack Obama outside and pearing through the window at the Republicans partying inside with a concerned look on his face, while federal employees including astronauts and law enforcement officers are shown to be refused entry to the party as the republicans are shown dancing in their underwhere and getting crazy in the pool! The We Did Stop video is a smash hit with over 2 Million views in just a couple of days online quickly becoming the number one video on Youtube and a trending search on Google in the United States. The Miley Cyrus Saturday Night Live video is hilarious, but the government shutdown does have a very real impact on many people's lives throughout our Nation, so hopefully our leaders can reach an agreement soon and get the government back on track!

SNL + Miley Cyrus - We Did Stop Lyrics

It's our party
We can do what we want
It's our party
We can say what we want
It's our party
We can stop what we want
We can vote how we want
Defund what we want

Red states and sweaty bodies everywhere
Bills in the house like we dont care
cause we came to shut it all down now
No government around now
If you're not ready for health care
Can I get a HELL, NO!
'Cause were gonna keep it out shut down
D.C. is a closed town all-round

So la da di da di
Republican Party
Repping G.O.P.
Doing whatever we want
This is our house
This is our rules

And we did stop (the government)
Yeah, we did stop (shut it down)
Cant you see it's we
Who are right?
Cant you see its we
Who bout that life?

To my government workers on the furlough
Even though you're already paid low
Remember only God can judge us
Forget the haters cause somebody elected us
And everyone in line for early childcare
Anyone who planned to see a grizzly bear
We are all shut down here
Getting so shut down, yeah, yeah

So la da di da di
Republican Party
Repping G.O.P.
Doing whatever we want
This is our house
This is our rules

And we did stop
Yeah, we did stop
Can't you see its we
Who are the right?
Can't you see its we
Who bout that life?

It's our party
We can do what we want
Its our party
We can say what we want
It's our party
We can stop what we want
We can vote how we want
Defund what we want
Shut it down.

Miley Cyrus Reveals 'We Did Stop' Video With John Boehner On SNL - Thanks HollyWood Life

Still confused about the government shutdown? Well thankfully Miley and the cast of Saturday Night Live put together a hilarious video boiling things down to 'We Can't Stop' terms. This might be the most genius thing Saturday Night Live has done in years. With Miley Cyrus as the host and musical guest on Oct. 5, the comedy show utilized her song and video We Can't Stop to poke fun at the government shutdown with a video cleverly titled We Did Stop. Miley Cyrus' Hilarious We Did Stop Video Miley stars in the video as a sexy Michele Bachmann alongside Taran Killam, who plays a creepy, nearly naked John Boehner. Both Michele and John are pretty psyched about shutting down the government, and are celebrating by taking a page out of Miley's We Can't Stop book. The teddy bears, the grills, the twerking girls are all on hand in a perfect recreation of Miley's scandalous video. There are way too many awesome shots to choose from John Boehner twerking, Michele getting raunchy in a sexy pantsuit, or maybe President Obama looking in on the party from outside with a WTF look on his face.

Miley Cyrus Tackles the Government Shutdown with 'We Can't Stop' Parody on SNL - Thanks Celebuzz

Say what you want about Miley Cyrus, but she brought her A-game to Saturday Night Live this week. Smiler or not, there are a few things to love about this music video about the government shutdown, set to the tune of "We Can't Stop." That's SNL's Taran Killam as House Speaker John Boehner, and Miley as Michele Bachmann. And yes, Miley licks an Abraham Lincoln doll at one point. The original video's bears are replaced with the GOP elephants, but the fries remain.

We Did Stop: Miley Cyrus Mocks Government Shutdown on SNL - Thanks Wall Street Journal

On last night's Saturday Night Live, host and musical guest Miley Cyrus helped the show send up the government shutdown in Washington with a parody of her hit music video We Can't Stop, pointedly retitled We Did Stop (The Government). The SNL bit laid the blame for the government shutdown squarely at the feet of the Republicans. The video showed SNL player Taran Killam dressed as Republican House Speaker John Boehner, and Cyrus as Minnesota Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann, partying hard, and symbolically having their way with Uncle Sam, while Barack Obama (played by Jay Pharoah) looked on uninvolved and forlorn, locked outside this very unpatriotic house party. Given that much of the shutdown is about public relations, one has to wonder if even a silly thing like an SNL parody might have some real-world effect, if Republican lawmakers get the sense that mainstream outlets are singling them out for ridicule. In a Weekend Update piece on the show, Boenher and the G.O.P. were both labelled loser. (So was the Affordable Care Act website only because of reports of glitches due to too much demand for Obamacare.)

SNL Does Hilarious Miley Cyrus Parody We Did Stop (The Government) - Thanks Media ITE

Saturday Night Live took full advantage of host Miley Cyrus' cultural footprint this week with a hilarious sendup of her aggressively surreal We Can't Stop video, instead featuring Republicans like John Boehner and Michele Bachmann vamping dirtily to We Did Stop (The Government), an ode to the current federal government shutdown. The piece featured We Can't Stop's weird, scuzzy imagery, stuffed elephants in place of teddy bears, and a voyeuristic President Obama peeking through the curtains.

Miley Cyrus' 'We Can't Stop' Video Gets Sexy GOP Remix On 'SNL' - Thanks MTV

Miley Cyrus' unruly video for "We Can't Stop" was something of an illustration of what happens when you put a bunch of mutinous kids in a room together to see what unfolds -- which, you could argue, is exactly what's been taking place in Congress in the wake of last week's government shutdown.

Miley Cyrus Pokes Fun At VMA Performance On 'SNL'
"We Did Stop (The Government)," a pre-taped music video from the Miley-hosted "Saturday Night Live," merges these two worlds to create a smart, rebellious and downright hilarious statement on just how twisted things are in D.C. It's quite a bit more conservative than "We Can't Stop," but in political affiliation solely -- it's every bit as raunchy as the original, and in ways, it's even more alarming. The burning marshmallows are replaced with burning $100 bills (seriously, just look at how much the shutdown's costing us), the creepy singing face is replaced by that of Republican deity Ronald Reagan and all the dogs and stuffed bears are replaced with -- you guessed it -- elephants. In short, it brings a hilarious (and at the same time, a truly terrifying) new meaning to "This is our house/ This is our rules."

The two-and-a-half minute clip opens with Taran Killam as Miley-meets-John-Boehner as the Speaker of the House puts in his grill and slicks back his hair as a familiar voice rings in with a slightly different message: "It's our party, we can stop what we want, we can vote how we want, defund what we want."

That's when the really Miley shows up, dressed almost uncannily as Republican representative Michele Bachmann (who has been one of the most fervent opponents of President Obama's health care law). But that doesn't mean her moves are going to be any less suggestive this time around.

"Red states and sweaty bodies everywhere/ Bill's in the house like we don't care/ 'cause we came to shut it all down now, no government around now," she sings as she and Killam dance with Uncle Sam, break a pinata in the shape of the American flag, and turn away astronauts and park rangers who want to get in on the fun. "If you're not ready for health care/ Can I get a "hell no!" /'Cause we're gonna keep it out shut down/ D.C. is a closed town all around."

The clip aired during Miley's double-duty gig on "SNL," which also saw her playing Hillary Clinton and during which she performed "Wrecking Ball" and an acoustic version of "We Can't Stop."

There's sure to be more hilarious moments where that came from the extended, 90-minute version of "Miley: The Movement,' airing tonight on MTV at 8p.m. ET.
