Okay, whether you found the song funny is a matter of taste, but would you care to explain what was so funny about her putting on a ukulele? I'm always looking for things to be amused by, but I unfortunately seem to have missed the humour in the uke donning.
Uh… first of all, it's ridiculous to claim someone isn't nerdy enough or that they're fakes because they haven't seen a particular YouTube clip (or movie, or book, or anything really. Perhaps their luckiness is over 10,000
?) I hadn't seen that clip either (and to paraphrase another song
, I have been a nerd since my first five-syllable word, and no TV series or YouTube changes that), and I don't even see what's so nerdy about it. Secondly, what idea do you claim they're using? Their song briefly references the Europe song that the person in that video is covering, yes, and they happen to be using a ukulele (though with a cello rather than a kazoo), but I really don't see how they're referencing that particular cover. It's not as if they stole the arrangement or anything; they don't work for Glee.
I can only assume you're making a subtle joke that I don't get, or perhaps you didn't realise the Kazookeylele song was a cover (I understand; I'm often surprised by the things I recognise on the radio in supermarkets because I didn't realise the songs I knew were parodies [ETA: rather than just ordinary comedy songs]), because I don't see how their song could seriously be linked to that particular cover of a different song.
Also (in case you are seriously interested in solving the mystery of why she put the ukulele on) that song came several songs later in the set; she actually put on the ukulele for this one
and used it on and off for the rest of the show, switching to the guitar and back before doing The Final Countdown.
Actually, now that I think about it, I suppose it is kind of funny that she seemed to switch between guitar and uke a lot rather than sticking to one instrument for half the set and then switching. But I guess they order their setlist by style or theme rather than instrument.
