(Newser) – A hilarious YouTube crew thinks they have proof positive that Usher ripped off Homer Simpson. Mississippi's Y101 radio show staffers discovered that Usher's OMG, written this year by will.i.am, is strikingly similar to a Homer song from 2003—except that Simpson croons about Christmas presents 'sted of his baby's booty. "Christmas in December/Wow wow wow/Gimme tons of presents/Now now now," croaks Homer in the episode Dude, Where's My Ranch? Usher's version? "Honey got a booty like/Pow pow pow/Honey got some boobies like/Wow oh wow." Still skeptical? Check out the mash-up video here. You be the judge.
