TV reporter is the latest to tackle Blackalicious' 'Alphabet Aerobics'

Posted on

Daniel Radcliffe may have really started something. Back in October, the erstwhile boy wizard appeared on The Tonight Show to promote his new movie Horns and ended up winning the Internet for the day with a surprisingly adept performance of iconic underground rap group Blackalicious’s tongue-twisting 1999 track “Alphabet Aerobics.”

Now, other non-rappers have begun taking a swing at the song as well, including Midland, Texas news reporter Kim Powell, who apparently uses it as a warm-up before going on air. Her Radcliffe-level rendition–which she did without a beat behind her–has made her an Internet darling, and almost definitely ensured that we’ll get another million or so amateur versions of “Alphabet Aerobics” in the coming months.
