Cee-Lo 'F**k You' Video: Hottest of the Year?

(Arista)

We have to say, we didn't expect a video called "F**k You" to be hilariously (and almost innocently) funny. 

And the song's pretty catchy, too!

Cee-Lo Green's "F**k You" video was viewed over a million times on YouTube in its first three days on the site. It now has over 4 million views -- pretty impressive for a video that features nothing but scrolling lyrics.

The song is similar in concept to Kanye West's "Gold Digger." The singer's girl has left him for another, richer guy, and he'd just like to politely say to them both: "F**k You."

In fact, the song is sung so sweetly that the F-word (which can easily be bleeped out for your PG-rated pleasure) is not even as off-putting as the N-word (which sneaks in just once).

And no one is more shocked by the video's success than Cee-Lo, who is also a member of the group Gnarls Barkley. 

The video was only supposed to be a temporary placeholder while Cee-Lo shoots his official video for the song in the coming weeks, Urlesque reports. 

Sometimes, the more simple the delivery, the more powerful the message.

As for who will have the viral video hit of 2010, Cee-Lo has plenty of competition. 

Tween heartthrobs Greyson Chance and Justin Bieber will duke it out with icon-in-the-making Lady Gaga and a little 13-year-old opera singer.
