My New Favorite Thing on the Internet

You can thank Skendall for this. Tonight, she asked if I'd ever seen the "Total Eclipse of the Heart" Video, like the original one from back in the day.

I said no, and she made me watch the first minute of it, just to get the full scope of how terrible it is.

Now you watch.

Then she showed me THIS. Which is the funniest thing I may have every seen on the internet.  My life is now, more complete.


Make sure you watch until the end. My favorite line is the one about Hogwarts.

HAHaha! I can't believe the original ever aired!..thanks for the 'spoof'. That was pretty darn funny. And now it's stuck in my head. Thanks.

That is one of my favorite videos of all time! I don't remember how I found it, but I spammed about every person in my contact list to spread it around. I still pull it up just to get a laugh every now and then. My favorite part is the dancing ninja men "who know how to twirl." :)

Haha, I love those literal videos! My favorite might be Meatloaf's. The dancing ninjas was definitely my favorite part.

You should check out the Literal Movie Trailers while you're on YT. They're hilarious.

Angelica R. Jackson said...

I knew it was going to be the literal version! The one of Take on Me is great too.

I laughed in the first video when I realized she literally meant bright eyes.

I'd never seen the literal videos, but I'm a fan. I have some viewing to do.

Kristi Helvig said...

The "Glee club of the damned" line had me crying. Thanks for the laugh!

Jeigh said...

Wow, I had so many things to say about the original one, but I think the literal version pretty much summed up everything I was thinking. Those bright eyes are going to give me nightmares.

I love literal trailers. Usually I watch the ones for movie trailers but this.... this is priceless!

What does it say about me that when I hear the music, I think of junior high dances? Hmmmmmmmm...

Mullet with headlights is my favourite. :)

Funny. I like the ones Tobuscus does of trailers.

Hubby and I saw this several years ago, and we STILL reference it - which is saying a lot, considering how many videos we've viewed (and then forgotten) in the ensuing time. Have you seen the chart? http://jeannr.tumblr.com/post/165291081/i-made-a-flow-chart-that-we-might-better

How have I never seen this? It's brilliant! Thanks for posting. *raises hands in backlit Rocky pose to show appreciation*

I almost wet myself laughing. Trying hard not to procrastinate further by watching some of the other literal videos. Not sure how long I'll be able to hold out...

Melissa said...

Brilliant song, but the video had me rolling on the floor, clutching my side. And then I watched the literal video . . .

Thank you so very much for posting this! Everyone should start the day with a cheeks-hurt sort of laugh.

:-D

This is the funniest parody I've seen since Drunken Jedi.

Five Random Things About Suzie

1. I drink so much orange soda, it's probably running through my veins. I've been known to go through a twelve pack of diet sunkist in a day.

2. I'm legitimately nocturnal (or a vampire). I will be so exhausted at two pm that I'm falling asleep standing up - it has happened before, at Six Flags no less - but as soon as the sun goes down I'm wide awake.

3. I have a gorgeous unused $6000 Reem Acra wedding dress hanging in my closet, and it showed up on my doorstep the same day my (now ex) fiance broke up with me. And thank God for that. I wouldn't have wanted to waste that dress on him.

4. Social anxiety plagues me daily. I write a script and practice in front of the mirror when I have to make a phone call, but most people who interact with me have no idea how nervous I am (or perhaps they lie) because I've worked so hard to try to overcome it.

5. I'm actually worried that I will never love my children (when I do have them in the far off future) as much as I love my dogs. I just like animals better than people - they're sweet and innocent and soft and furry - is that so wrong?
