I spend a lot of time on the TripleDoubleU. Well, a lot probably is an understatement of the amount of minutes I’ve allotted to pure waste. All I know, is it could be worse. Like, I could have burned the entire Memorial Day weekend away in front of my laptop, and that, um, didn’t happen.
My cousin, Steve, on the other hand, is what I would call a web dabbler. He dives into the stream of the information superhighway every now and again, and he phishes out some strange finds. Such as these two videos below.
Both feature interesting music choices and eclectic slide shows.
Both took a lot of time to make… but hopefully not an entire Memorial Day weekend.
(BONUS BOTH: May both get stuck in your head!)
Awful Battle, GO!
(Click here for Egg Movie 2… and oh wait, yes! There is more Linda Gray lovefesting here. My personal fave? You can never go wrong with Cascada and staring in the credits.)
To start off… I know, I know, the last two posts have been kind of lady-centric (which literally meant something way different back in the Old West… say it slowly), so why stop now on this Memorial Day. In addition to the current state of this blog, my last Musical Musings was about songs sounding the same that may or may not have sounded the same. Don’t hold that one against my credibility. Heck, don’t even believe that I have any credibility. But this time – I think I’m onto something.
Listen to the background music in this Maybelline commercial featuring Adriana Lima (hey guys, at least it’s featuring a Victoria’s Secret model… and a golf ball for some reason):
Now take a listen to Regina Spektor’s On the Radio:
(For the record I was at that Lollapalooza concert performance. I think you can see me in the crowd at the end. I’m the guy in a striped shirt, clapping. My face was a little blurry that day, so I kind of blend in.)
Now I dare you to go back and listen to the Maybelline commercial and see how they ripped her song off. (Maybe I should have put them on this page in the opposite order… oh well, deal with it.)
The song is definitely not the original, and amazingly, it’s coincidentally similar. Kind of like these posters:
Okay, it’s even closer than these two posters… but still.
This needs to happen stat! (Why does ‘stat’ mean ‘now?’ Does it even mean ‘now?’) So let’s get to work and watch this video!
Somebody get sand in Ziplock bags.
Somebody wrap said sand-filled Ziplock bags in purple tissue paper.
Somebody sprinkle fairy dust on the Pretty Pink Pathway.
Where are the pink and purple and white helium balloons? I specifically asked for pink and purple and white helium balloons!
Why does that creepy announcer dude keep laughing to himself?
I don’t care if your hands are sore from cutting out stars! We need more stars!
What the fuck is that? It doesn’t even look like a star! It looks like a fucking claw! Gah, you’re worthless!
Stop crying! You’re giving me a headache!
Seriously, if you don’t shut up – where’s all the breakable stuff, ‘cuz I wanna break something on your head!
Peeper get back here and give me back my GD real tiara!
Is it just me, or Gwendolyn way too into letting Peeper lick icing off her finger?
Who had fairy princess music on their iPod? Don’t tell me I put on my dancing shoes for naught!
I’ll make a fairly good wager that if ‘king dad’ got hit in the nuts holding that sliding princess piñata, he wouldn’t feel it (‘cuz he’s nutless, you see).
Hurry up baking! I wanna eat the fuck out of that princess cake.
You want your goody bag of treasures, right? Candy lipstick and bubbles don’t grow on trees!
