Since everyone is going on about eclipses today, here's one of the funniest things I've seen on YouTube recently (link sent by Aishwarya): the "literal video version" of Bonnie Tyler's "Total Eclipse of the Heart", which retains the original music but substitutes the lyrics with descriptions of what's going on in the music video (and a gloriously cheesy 1980s music video it is too). I love the "Fonzie's been cloned!" bit. And "Now I need a mop." And "Douchebags!" And many other things. Keep the volume turned up all the way.

Others in the literal-video series: REM's "Losing My Religion" ("Is that Dennis Rodman?") and A-Ha's "Take on Me".


  1. Yo may like this one as well:


  2. Brilliant. These are the videos we grew up with... sent straight to hell. Better than the Weird Al stuff we had to listen to ('eat it', 'like a surgeon' etc etc) back in school and find funny. But then again, weird al is weird al. too bad he didn't make the whitehouse

  3. and yeah, jerks who like to move their buddiehoods to facebook deserve to become ROBOTIC ANDROID clones who can never ever get the RED PILL to smash the MATRIX and survive as human

  4. I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
