We talk about the song that glorified the comedian Bo Burnham and conquered the expanses of TikTok

Jeff Bezos - under this name, the audience fell in love with the groovy track Bo Burnema, which was released in 2021. As it is not difficult to guess, the song is addressed to Jeff Bezos - founder Amazon and just a billionaire who in July of the same 2021 went into space! But what exactly made it a hit among young people, and moreover "Gimme! Gimme! Gimma!" the legendary Swedish band "ABBA"? We offer to understand this story together, but first things first…

Jeff Bezos - a very wealthy and influential person today, the founder Amazon and owner of an aerospace company blue origin. Jeffrey Preston (real name) was born in 1964 in New Mexico, in the family of Jacqueline and Theodore Jorgensen. When the couple divorced, Jeff's mother became engaged to a Cuban immigrant named Miguel "Mike" Bezos Jr.. As a result, the man adopted a 4-year-old boy and gave him his last name.

In 1986 Bezos graduated with honors from Princeton University, and soon got a job at the famous Wall Street: basically, the guy was developing networks for international trade. And then, one fine day, he came up with the idea of an online bookstore. So in 1995 Amazon appeared, and years later Bezos was talked about as a businessman with working fresh ideas. Naturally, Bezos earned many millions of dollars from his company. And during the 2020 pandemic, his fortune grew by about 24 billion dollars! But why exactly did he inspire Burnham on the track? After all, there are enough billionaires in the world ...

The idea of the track and flight into space

When Bo wrote this song Bezos topped the annual list of billionaires Forbes! This made him the richest person in the world, beating Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, Microsoft founder Bill Gates and tycoon Warren Buffett. In his song Burnham sarcastically praises Bezos, noting how much the Cuban immigrant's stepson surpassed his fellow tycoons:

"Come on, Geoffrey, you can do anything,
Pave the way, pull up!
Tell us why, show us how
Look where you're from and look who you are now..."

The song gained a lot of interest after July 20, 2021 Bezos flew to space! It happened nine days after the flight of his fellow magnate Richard Branson. Then a flurry of criticism fell upon them, saying that the flights of billionaires into space are an expensive and useless waste of money. To this, Jeff replied that Amazon employees and customers "Paid for everything". This statement led to condemnation in society ... But as you understand, Bezos himself was not at all worried about this.

There is no such person who has never heard "Gimme! Gimme! Gimma!" groups ABBA. This is one of the most famous and to this day popular hits of the band, released at the end of the 1970s. A video was shot for the song, which gained 300 million views on YouTube, and she herself did not stop on the radio for a long time. Even today, this composition can still be heard, tuned in to the right retro wave ... And so, one enthusiast decided to combine the hit of the 70s with the anthem to Jeff Bezos! It turned out very interesting…

As a result, the remix became very popular in TikTok, thanks to which both songs have gained new fans!
