GEM.

this song is amazing and the video is even more.

gem moments:

1:24 - his grunty face

2:13 - the mouthing of the echo - like we all don't know that's an effect done in production.

2:17 - the failure to edit out his mouthing something else when there are no actual words being sung at that point in the song

2:37 - his hand gesture. um. really?

2:39 - ass slaps to correspond with hand claps in the song (see Jeremy's comment!)

3:26 - the fact that neither of them is even attempting to resemble actually playing the song on their guitars

the ridiculousness abounds.

I essentially just made you a Pop-Up Video.

In the edit suite:

"Ok, right here, when we hear the hand claps, smash cut to the three chicks smacking their own asses."

"Wha?"

"You know, so it looks like the hand claps are actually self-ass-smacks."

Editor thinks. "Fuck! You're a genius Billy!"

Billy grins. "Let's see it."


This is the way to start a morning! THANKS.

I think this video could have used a little more fog machine action. I mean, c'mon it's the 80s. Crazy effects like that cost by the hour. Show us how much you paid for it!!!
