(Newser) – A video poking fun at Whole Foods shoppers and Prius drivers is closing in on a million hits on YouTube. "It's Getting Real in the Whole Foods Parking Lot" is by Fog and Smog, led by David Wittman (DJ Dave), reports Berkeleyside. Wittman is a Whole Foods fan himself, but the idea is to have some fun at consumer culture and the store in particular. The best part of the rap? "Rhyming 'brah' with 'quinoa,'" declares the Seattle Post-Intelligencer.

Sample lines: "Pay my 80 bucks for six things and get the heck out" and "I’ve been on edge ever since they took kombucha off the shelf." This would be more interesting if Whole Foods hated the video, but the company thinks it's pretty funny, notes the Today show blog.
