A Little Funny To Go With The Dark Mood

Plus it's a pretty good song. Sounds like the follow-up to My Sharona the Knack should have released instead of Good Girls Don't.

As YouTube Is Down... This link should open a high bandwidth WMV file of the song, from the band's site.

Thanks to CraigC and yls.

Watching Again... One take, no edits. They go slightly out of sync in a couple of places, but that's pretty good. (Unless this very cheap-looking video has some kind of very sophisticated CGI effect to disguise a few edits... which doesn't seem very likely.)

How many damn takes did these guys do to get that one good take? Like, thirty? Forty?

Or Are There...? Maybe I've got fauxtography on the brain, but I think only lunatics would try this in one take. There are a couple of places where everyone is pretty well frozen; I wonder if a CGI morph couldn't marry one still shot from one take into a still shot from the next.

MAJOR RETRACTION/CORRECTION: Okay, not that major. But the "frozen" parts I think now were just stuttering video on my computer. It looks like one straight take. So they are lunatics.

More... Shawn, but not lowercased shawn, in some Dave at Garfield Ridge "It's Old" move, tells me he bought two of the band's CD's today.

He also says to check out their website, where a lot of videos are available. He recommends the band's "instructional videos." A funny one on ping pong is here.

However... As funny as all that is, I think this video, linked on this site in its third week or so, is still the funniest video eveh.


Plus, the song rocks 42% harder than the OK Go song.

Not sayin' the OK Go song isn't good.

It just doesn't rrrrhockh as hard as this one.

Eh... Why Not More And Make This The Funniest, Rrrrrockin'est Post Ever?
William Shatner kicks all kinds of ass with Joe Jackson covering Pulp's Common People.

Shatner rapping The Evil That Men Do, from his one-man version of Julius Caesar, from the movie Free Enterprise, I think.

And, of course, this. How psyched does Bernie Taupin look?
