South Florida's Favorite Parody Tune, "I'm on a Boat," Gets a Grammy Nomination

If you're like most of the folks at the Juice, watching music awards shows generally ranks somewhere above sniffing Tom Delay's underwear and below intentionally getting Tazed on your scale of "things I'd like to do with my evening." But that might change this year, all because of one fantastic anthem celebrating four simple words: "I'm on a boat."

That's right, the Andy Samberg, SNL digital short, which features T-Pain and was shot completely in South Florida, was among the songs nominated in the Best Rap Collaboration category. Also in the category: Jay-Z and Rhianna. The real celebration here, though, is the fact that we have an excuse to post the video.

"I'm riding on a dolphin, doing flips and shit
This dolphin's splashing, getting everybody all wet
This ain't Seaworld, this is real as it gets
I'm on a boat, motherfucker, don't you forget"
