I didn’t know I needed to see a mashup video where Jeopardy!‘s Alex Trebek rapped the Megan Thee Stallion hit “Savage.” But, yep, I needed it.
It’s frankly delightful. Here, enjoy.
It took the internet no time at all to create this doctored-up remix featuring the iconic gameshow host. In case you somehow haven’t heard the song, “Savage” has been pretty much everywhere this year. It hit the top of the charts, got a remix featuring Beyoncé, and inspired countless TikTok dances.
Trebek read the lyrics to the song in a clue on Thursday evening and, of course, slowly dictated the words in a classic deadpan.
“‘Classy, bougie, ratchet’ and ‘sassy, moody, nasty’ says this No. 1 hit by Megan Thee Stallion,” Trebek said on the show.
After that initial clip hit the internet, Vulture anticipated a remix and begged for it with a headline reading: “Alex Trebek’s ‘Savage’ Jeopardy! Clue Needs a Remix.”
It wasn’t a long time until that desire was fulfilled. The remix went even further than most might imagine by digging up Trebek uttering the word “bitch” and hitting a sick dance move.
What a world we live in.
This isn’t the first time Trebek has been remixed. As a matter of fact, pretty much every time the host reads rap lyrics, a remix follows. My personal favorite is the Trebek version of “Panda.”
