If you glanced at Twitter or any of your RSS feeds today, you may noticed that the internet is currently buzzing as Kanye West and Jay-Z's collaborative album Watch The Throne hit iTunes at midnight today and everyone was rocking it on their way to work this morning. Early word is strong on the album, which isn't surprising, and the album boasts a number of excellent samples which again, isn't that shocking. But one element that has been turning heads? The use of a bit of dialogue from Will Ferrell and Jon Heder's figure skating comedy "Blades Of Glory."

The use of a bit of dialogue from Will Ferrell and Jon Heder's figure skating comedy "Blades Of Glory."

Yep, it turns out the rappers who often fancy themselves purveyors of high art and culture like to laugh at dumb shit at the rest of us and have lifted the "lady humps" scene for the song "Niggas In Paris" -- a more random pairing we couldn't have imagined ourselves. Even in the song, the clip is pretty jarring arriving at the beginning of middle of the song but the thought of Yeezy and Hova in the studio, with a DVD of the movie playing and realizing that clip was the missing piece of the puzzle for the song is kind of amazing. So yeah, there's your random movie trivia for the day. Check out the scene and the song below. Turn up those speakers. [Pop & Hiss]
