CLEAR! (An Usher CPR Parody)

Dr. Harry Returns to Save Us…From Disco.

 

That the American Heart Association has been pushing 1970’s era swill on an unsuspecting public has never settled well with Dr. Harry. I mean, who the heck would really use Stayin’ Alive as a reference for the pace of chest compressions in CPR? How would Dr. Harry ever possibly look cool flexing his hastily oiled triceps while vigorously pushing on the sternum…to the Bee Gees?

 

Now USHER…yeah, that’s a completely different subject.

 

As it turns out, the beat of Usher’s 2004 classic club anthem “Yeah” is just about the same as the minimum pace of chest compressions recommended to save a life when you see an adult or teen collapse. And it turns out, around 2008 researchers suggested that doing mouth to mouth (or “rescue breaths” as they’re known in the business) is probably not needed to save lives…just:

  1. Call 911 or have a friend call.
  2. Push hard and fast in the center of the chest at least 100 times/minute.
  3. Don’t stop until help arrives.
  4. IF there is an AED (Automated External Defibrillator) nearby, then use it as directed (and attach it to the chest as quickly as possible, even before starting CPR). There’s a voice prompt that will walk you through the process…of potentially saving a life.
  5. Flex triceps entire time. If muscle oil is available, apply liberally.

In conjunction with the staff of Turntable Health, the amazing folks at Fremont East Studios donated their time and resources to produce this amazing video. And Downtown Vegas stepped up with volunteers and extras galore!

Up in the club with the ZDogg, can’t believe I paid 2-5

Just to dance with these D-bags—this place kinda smells

Not a shawty was checkin’ up on us

Despite the tats and the earrings, they could tell that we’re forty

So we bought some Cristal…

Drinks were kinda expensive

When I saw the tab, my heart was ready to blow

(watch out, oh, watch out)

Chest pain was extensive

Then my heart stopped and I collapsed to the floor

I don’t wanna die poor!

 

[ZDoggMD]

 

And when I saw him I said

Clear Clear, homie dropped down, so I best move quickly

Clear Clear, but then I got caught up thinkin’ where his lips have been

Clear Clear, if I don’t move now, Imma lose my homie

Clear Clear, don’t you die on me, can’t pay this tab myself, G!

 

I’m freakin’ out in my head now

Got me thinkin’ that it might be a good idea to call somebody

Better check with Siri? *now locating nearest morgue*

But should I post this first on Facebook?

Maybe an Instagram or a snarky tweet?
A sure-fire OMG!

 

[Dr. Harry]

 

Are you kidding me, ass, if you don’t run, you know where it’s gonna lead

You better move fast, call 911, or I’ll be underground six feet

And then you get down low

Listen, yeah, if you really want to succeed

Push hard and fast in the center of the chest

Two hands are really all you need!

 

[ZDoggMD]

 

And I said

Clear Clear, homie dropped down, so I best move quickly

Clear Clear, don’t get so caught up thinkin’ how his lips look icky

Clear Clear, first I’ll call for help or maybe ask a homie

Clear Clear, ditch the mouth to mouth, CPR can be hands only

 

[Zu-ducris]

 

Look out, mouth to mouth’s ridiculous in the club when the mouth’s vesiculous

And rowwwl your protocol’s all out of date

Blowin’ air down the pipe is so 2008!

So forget about that, Imma squeeze the chest

CPR hands only when your homie arrests!

Just gimme the rhythm and it’ll be 911 first

Circulate, defibrillate and this might be reversed

Well versed if you grab yourself an AED

Automate defibrillation cause it’s so easy to use

Just stick the pads on the chest, hit analyze and let the AED tell you the rest

It’ll test the rhythm, and if it sees the need

It’ll indicate to shock ’em like double speed

ZDogg and Dr. Harry, never leaves em dead

Resuscitate ’em in the street

Serve ’em breakfast in bed!

 

Clear Clear

 

Take heed, rewind the beat

It’s the pace of compressions for a homie in need

Jump back, rewind the track

Better push from your hips, don’t hurt your back!

 

Take heed, rewind the beat

It’s the pace of compressions for a homie in need

Push down, recoil it back

ZDogg and Dr. Harry make your ribs go *crack*
