W is for Why not Jimmy?

Okay, so my gif woes will not end. My first choice for W was this song called 'Why not Jimmy' from the 2008 movie Jimmy, starring Mithun Da's son Mahaaaaakshay Chakraborty (also known as Mimoh). But like what happened before, Shemaroo will not allow playback on other sites so I can't generate gifs. Normally, I'd just pick another song in a case like this and I did consider some options, including 'What is your style number?' but I couldn't do it.

'Why not Jimmy' is that amazing.

(Though I have to say I'm still wondering if it's supposed to be 'Why not Jimmy?' or 'Why not, Jimmy?')

Anyway, for this song, I decided to make do with screenshots instead of gifs. Though I'm heartbroken because the gifs would have been kickass. You'll know what I mean when you see the full video.

The song starts off with Mimoh trying to be Keanu Reeves from The Matrix.

Except that this Neo has only one fan backing him up -- literally. And that's daddy Mithun.

This reminds me a conditioner ad. With Mimoh showing the 'before'.

Let's take a closer look. Bad hair day for Mimoh? Or bad heir day for Mithun?

And now it's only fair that we also see some post-conditioner photos.



And oh, btw, he's also a dancer like daddy. In fact, when he dances, sparks fly. Off his shoes. Like, really.

All I can say at the end of this song is 'Why, Jimmy, why?'

Check it out.

Omg nooooo I had posted both U and V on the same day (because of the giphy glitch) but it looks like V got saved as a draft again (maybe I was doing some editing and forgot to hit publish!). Thanks for pointing that out. I've just published it. :)

What is ^^^? :D

Apne din aayenge, sounds like C-grade version of Apna Time Aayega, but Jimmy's time never came. :-)

Mithun: My son will be a bigger stud than Akshay!
Wife: What should we name him?
