Oh man, I love this video.
Rachel Bilson is one of my favorite actresses. True story: I didn’t watch The O.C. when it first came on because it looked like just another 90210-type soap and I just wasn’t interested in that sort of stuff, but after hearing all the buzz surrounding the show and watching the admittedly intriguing commercials for each week’s new episode, I finally broke down and started watching the show and I almost immediately fell in love with it. I’m still an O.C. nut today. And part of that has to do with Rachel Bilson. After watching all the commercials I was set to hate her character Summer for being the rich spoiled bitch that Seth shouldn’t be with. He should be with Anna, right? The cute nerdy girl that gets him. Why would he want to be with Summer? Then I actually saw Bilson’s performance and hey, I get it. While she was a little grating at first, the writers did an excellent job fleshing her character out and she quickly became one of the best characters on the show.
Today Rachel Bilson has a new show on the CW called Hart of Dixie, which while not perfect, is actually one of the best new shows of the 2011-12 season. It feels a lot like if Everwood took place in the Gilmore Girls’ Stars Hallow down South. And while it’s not yet as good as either of those shows it has a lot of promise and is becoming more charming and quirky as the weeks go on. I’m actually really looking forward to its return from winter hiatus next week.
All that brings us to this hilarious music video Bilson made for Funny-or-Die that rivals Natalie Portman’s SNL digital short–whom Bilson calls out in the song (Watch your back, Natalie!)–in which Bilson calls out all the haters who say she doesn’t make for a believable doctor on Hart of Dixie. It’s pretty funny stuff. Watch the video for the surprisingly catchy beat and Rachel’s sick flow and stay for some funny cameos by a few of her Hart of Dixie co-stars.

And no, I have no idea why there is so much blank space after the video.
