Jon Lajoie was raised in Montreal, Quebec and he graduated from Dawson College’s theater program in 2001. Jon Lajoie first became popular through the music video “Everyday Normal Guy”, in which he, in ironic contrast to typical rap songs, sings about his bland, run-of-the-mill daily activities and his peaceful nature. Two of his music videos have developed into three-part series: “Everyday Normal Guy” was followed by “Everyday Normal Guy 2” and “Everyday Normal Crew”, with the “WTF Collective” video supposedly being presented by “Normal Guy Productions.” His videos have received millions of views on several websites.
Lajoie’s songs are often parodies of everyday things, such as stay-at-home dads, and doing chores on Sunday afternoons. His commercial parodies advertise undesirable products like “pedophile beards” and “rapist glasses” (other products advertised included “serial killer vans,” a “there’s gotta be something wrong with that guy hat”, and pencil crayons) or mundane human behavior such as “breathing”.
Lajoie currently has a role in the FX Network TV show called The League asTaco McArthur a perpetually stoned and unemployed musician. Created by the husband-and-wife duo of Jeff Schaffer (Curb Your Enthusiasm) and Jackie Marcus Schaffer, the show revolves around five guys who love fantasy football and they will do anything to win the league while dealing with other problems. Other ensemble cast members include Mark Duplass, Steve Rannazzisi, Nick Kroll, and Paul Scheer.
Jon Lajoie filmed an episode of Comedy Central Presents on November 7, 2009. It premiered on March 5, 2010. The special featured the world premiere of the video for his song “Pop Song”.
