This is beginning to look like a case for The Unbelievables

What are The Unbelievables good at? Well, yeah, everything. Sure. But what specialty niche do we really fill? That's right; dealing with celebrities while remaining resplendently stylish. Well, it would appear that a new trend is emerging and it's something in which we should get involved sooner than later.
"Yeah, Sir Paul and Stevie can basically suck it."
First, we had the possibly-well-intentioned-but-utterly-graceless release of the Brad Paisley and LL Cool J song "Accidental Racist". Admittedly, we could have done something about that before it happened, but we weren't really paying attention when it first came out and thought the song was called "Racing Accident" and assumed that it was about NASCAR. Sorry about that. That one's on us.
"Yo, I might write a song about Anne Frank's attic; you wouldn't know if she was damn asthmatic, would you?"
Then this weekend, the unfortunately all-too-alive Justin Bieber made a pilgrimage to the Anne Frank house in Amsterdam, where he inscribed the museum's guestbook with this dope freestyle: "Truly inspiring to be able to come here. Anne was a great girl. Hopefully she would have been a belieber."

The point is, that even though the culturally ham-handed exploits of these goofs do bring us all closer together to cringe as one, it would probably be better for everyone concerned if things didn't get that far in the first place *.

Yep, it looks like it's time to host one of our patented Unbelievinars, this one on cultural sensitivity. We've done these in the past on "as necessary" basis and it would seem that this situation qualifies. I won't spend more time detailing exactly what topics we've covered in the past or any of our exact, unique methods. I'll let Jeff and Michael fill you in. Suffice to say, if we can pull this off, it won't be the first time we've saved celebrities from themselves.

* Because it's really difficult to write jokes when people do dumber things than we can make up.
