Literal Videos

You remember the weird videos of the 1980's where you sit and think "seriously, what the heck does this video have to do with the song?" Was that just me? Anyone? Anyone?

Well anyway, there are smart, smart people out there who've taken those weird '80's video's and matched the words to the scenes. It's a hoot. I've put one of my favorites up. Enjoy my little smarty-pantsers...

Marni,
One of my Facebook friends shared this last night and I haven't been able to stop laughing about it. I love it! Thanks for posting it here. What a strange video, even for the '80s!

Beth said...

That. Was. AWESOME!!! I think it might have made me laugh harder than the "Jesus is My Friend" video. And that's a lot, my friends.

Anyone wanna guess what song has been stuck in my head ALL DAY?

This was a totally awesome "boat song" as my kids call them - one from a mix tape that we used to play over and over while lollygagging as a family down the Mississippi, eating red licorice, slathering on sunscreen, drinking (root) beer...yes, awesome, memorable boat song of my kids' childhood.....

UNTIL NOW

Waaaaaaahhhhhhh.

I have ALWAYS hated that song....

Until now.

"What the effing crap? That angel guy just felt me up?" - That's an instant classic!

Thanks, Marni, now I'm going to be on YouTube all night! Here's one for those who love all things shiny!!

I'm glad I didn't see this until now, cause I would have been signing this all day at work. I loved the video. Thanks Marni.

Now make it stop....

Katdish, no joke - that was my favorite line of all! Also, I lol'ed when she says "I'll never go to church again!"

This is the first time I've ever seen the video, and I don't see myself watching the original at this point. It could never compare to this awesomeness.
