David Lee Roth Tapes Intro for YouTube Star’s ‘Hot for Teacher’ Cover

If one in an infinite number of monkeys would eventually type out the complete works of Shakespeare, then it stands to reason that a similar number of YouTube channels would eventually produce a cover of Van Halen‘s “Hot for Teacher” by a former stripper and lingerie model turned vlogger and reality TV celebrity.

Given the distinct credentials boasted by performer Trisha Paytas, it also comes as no surprise that the video for her version of “Hot for Teacher” is preceded by an introduction from none other than VH frontman David Lee Roth, who has always had a healthy respect for the pursuit of fame as the means to its own end.

“Never before in the history of digital cyberspace. Get your cyberlegs ready. You’re about to lose your balance. Ladies and gentlemen!” barks Roth before cracking up and falling back in his chair. “As you can see, I’m a little bit distracted, because what you’re about to see is going to blow your mind. Mind-roasting!” Roth then utters a Japanese phrase that he says translates to “my mind is burning” before introducing “the homeroom teacher that you’ve always dreamt of” and promising that watching the video will lower your IQ by 14 points.

With an endorsement like that, you can hardly say no to watching Paytas’ “Hot for Teacher,” and if you like this, be sure to check out the rest of her new EP Fat Chicks, which has already made it into the Top 40 of the iTunes U.S. Pop Chart.
