There are few things more pretentious than the Genius Verified series, which has over-the-top artists explain the lyrics to one of their songs in front of signature yellow background.
YouTuber Zane Hijazi poked fun at the series with an explainer of his song “Boom,” which he refers to as “a story” and a “positive epidemic.” Explaining that his love interest has him feeling “like an animal,” he makes sure to hold up a dog to explain that it too is an animal.
“We all have dirty little secrets,” Zane continues. “But I, I have a little dirty secret … I’m not wearing any underwear.”
He then describes how he wants to take his “babe” on a long drive out of Los Angeles because he “only wants her presence.”
“So we’re driving far into the desert,” he describes. “And she starts questioning, why is there a shovel in the backseat? Why is there rope, why is there tape? And I tell her, we’re just treasure hunting.”
If you’re over completely oblivious artists explaining their weird lyrics to Genius, watch this. Like Zane says, “Is there boom after life? Or life after boom?”
