The Funniest Video Ever

When I was in high school, MTV first came on the air. (Yes...I know...I'm old. Whatever.) Anyway, I watched it whenever I could (at my friends' since my parents refused to get cable) and was totally fascinated by it. The first time I saw Bonnie Tyler's Total Eclipse of the Heart, my response was, FWUH? I couldn't figure out what the hell that bizarre-ass video and its shades of pedophilia had to do with the angsty love song.

Well...I still don't know, but I'm thrilled to report that some freaking genius has made a literal video of Total Eclipse of the Heart. If you're not familiar with literal videos, it's where someone sings a voice over of the original song with lyrics about what's happening in the video.

I. Love. This. Video. (okay, the talking in the middle is pretty lame, but the rest of it makes me laugh until I cry.) I hope you guys enjoy it, too. I think the balls/metaphor line is my favorite...or maybe it's the ninjas...I can't decide.

Oh. My. GOD!

"twirling ninjas" and "totally surprised guy" are my faves.

I laughed. I cried. It was better than peeing my pants.

Thank YOU!

Dakota Rebel said...

Oh. My. God! I know Mia already said it, but it bears repeating.

It is all about "Glee Club of the Damned."

That is the funniest literal video I think I've ever seen. Thank you so much for posting that. I needed that laugh really badly.

My favorite line is, "mullet with headlights."

When I watched this, my kids asked if we had a guinea pig, because I was laughing so hard I was squeaking.

ROFLMAO! I loved 'it started off as Hogwarts but now it's Lord of the Flies'...Love it, Bron! Thanks for the morning chuckle!

LOVED this!!!
But I have to admit - MTV was WAY better then than it is now.

Mia Watts said...

I think Bonnie Tyler has an obsession with shiny eyes... the glowing headlights... and then there's that song, Turn Around Bright Eyes. Yeah, she's a zombie groupie.

By the way, loved the surprise mirror.
