I never know if I'm ahead of the curve with silly internet memes or tragically behind, but the Literal Music Video thing has had me in stitches of late. It's partially due to the fact that yes, I came of age in the dawn of the music video age, and the 80s were fertile fields that are just now finally bearing the ridiculous fruit that was planted back then.
But it's also because, DAMN, the people who do these? For the most part, they're really smart and really funny.
In a Literal Music Video, one hears (and sees) re-written lyrics that are superimposed over the original images, delivering a creative a wealth of smart-assed snark on the choreography, direction, lighting, accessorizing...you get the picture.
Clever spuds, the people who do these. Much cleverer than me.
Head Over Heels
With Arms Wide Open
Take On Me
And nothing's sacred, kittens! Even the Beatles are fair game.
SO many more at YouTube, you just won't believe it..
