I'm not sure what Cubby Squires has been up to now that he's no longer on 96.1's A.M. Mayhem morning show, but one thing's for sure: he's looking for his next 15 minutes of fame. In late 2008, Cubby became an Internet sensation when the video spoof he made of Beyoncé's "Single Ladies"--complete with black leotard--went viral, garnering millions of views on YouTube. He rode the wave of fame for two years from that video, appearing on numerous television shows, as recently as a cameo on Tosh.0 in February and on Beyoncé's nationally televised concert special last November. Now, Cubby is back dancing like Bey in his newest spoof: Beyoncé's "Run the World (Girls)" video.

Cubby has no problem making fun of himself, but in the 4:45-long video, I didn't find myself laughing until about the 3:20 mark (when he appears in the green ensemble). Since he posted the video on YouTube last Wednesday, it's garnered a respectable 17,000-plus views. But the clip has actually been watched much more than that--it's been picked up by several gossip and entertainment websites, some who rip the video and upload it onto their own servers, often making it difficult to track the number of views. Those include,, and, the latter of which has received more than 75,000 views in the first four days.

Looks like Cubby's trying to rock that black leotard all the way to the bank. And if it appears to not fit as tightly as it once did, that's because Cubby says he's lost more than 40 pounds in the last eight months.
