What’s that? You didn’t know that the Kardashians also did music videos? Don’t worry, no one else did either. Back in the eighties, Kris Jenner (then Kris Kardashian) made a Rebecca Black-style music video dedicated to her friends on her thirtieth birthday. All I can really say about this, is who makes their friends a music video on their own birthday? And for that matter, who makes their friends a music video, period?

I have to give it to Kris though, aside from having a voice that might make even the deaf cringe, she does make an entertaining video. And by entertaining, I mean so bad that it’s actually entertaining. But wait just a minute. The Kardashian music video fad didn’t end in the 80s. Welcome to 2011: the year the Kardashians–all 100 of them–put together a family music video to Katy Perry’s “E.T.”

For all the ladies reading this, watch the video and tell me you don’t want to have Rob’s babies.
