If you know your way around the internet you’ve probably at the very least read a headline covering actress Amber Tamblyn’s recent intricate and psychotically genius email prank on Transformers star/R&B singer/underwear model Tyrese Gibson. I had personally seen several headlines, but the amount of convoluted text that followed discouraged me from getting my head around the subject.

But then I realized I am nothing more than your humble servant and it is my duty — no, my privilege! — to familiarize myself with the story so that I can relay it to you in the spirited and digestible manner you’re accustomed to. Buckle in folks. There’s some NSFW audio in our future. Here we go…

To begin, last Friday David Cross’s fiancee emailed the blog Street Boners and TV Carnage with the following introduction. No word yet on whether a friend runs the site or she’s just high on the combination of carnage and boners.

Hi friends!

Tyrese Gibson (of Fast and Furious and Transformers) saw my name cc’d on an email that a mutual friend sent out and thought I was the model ex girlfriend of Kanye West, Amber Rose. (My middle name is Rose and my email adress is registered as Amber Rose). I’ve never met Tyrese before. He pulled my email addy from that cc list and emailed me wanting to work on an album together. So I recorded my demos on my iPhone and sent them to him. I guess you could call them Awareness Raps? I am the Hilary Clinton of Ghostface Killahs.

Below are all the email correspondences I had with Tyrese as well as the songs I sent him.

Things that need to be pointed out:

  • Tyrese’s mistake was equal parts honest and trying too hard.
  • It was practically begging to be exploited.
  • I must know who the person is that is cc’ing Amber Tamblyn AND Tyrese Gibson on the same email.
  • You could have drowned a toddler in my panties after I read “Hilary Clinton of Ghostface Killahs.”

Now on to the correspondence. The sequence of the dates and times makes no sense to me either, but I do feel it is important to note that Tyrese’s email signature for any and all emails is “Respectfully, Tyrese Gibson.” Dude is like the anti-Chris Brown.

Amber’s first brilliant Awareness Rap single, “Splits.”

Eggs at the beach sounds hella gross, but they do lead to the following exchange.

Mother f*ckers really do have the biggest feet. Somehow Tyrese didn’t dig the hot fire quite as much as I did…
