The Greatest Music Video Ever Made, or 'Oh Noes, He's Grabbed The Pointy Ends!!11!eleven!'"

This is going to be all over the internet soon, and peope are going to be queueing up to take the piss, but I genuinely think there's something glorious about this video. The guy who made it knows EXACTLY what he likes, and you have to respect that. Well, not 'respect' exactly, but something very close.

Also, if I could play the guitar, I would play it exactly the way Chris Dane Owens does at 2:13.



It's also brought a deeply repressed memory back of a strange incident in Kent, about ten years ago, involving Waterstone's, female nudity, crossbows, and a television repair man. But there's no time to go into that right now.

Involving Waterstones, hey - but not James Moran or the entire spiritual world concentrated inside his Mac?

Maybe I am psychic, lol

Reading that back, that makes no sense at all really does it.

But you know what I mean, James...

Can I jump the queue and start taking the piss now?

It's what would have happened if John ("Missing You') Waite had starred in The Princess Bride.

That is hilariously terrible. It's like Flight of the Conchords' LOTR offering. But with a worse song and less pretty elves.

PS I don't care about the female nudity but will admit to some curiousity about the crossbows part of your story...

Everyone knows Elves like them some good funk-rock.

Cf: Prince, Rick James, Beck-when-he-was-still-funky - er - Legolas?

He probably played slap-bass when none of the Fellowship were looking.

Is it the eighties again already?


My WV is 'eridand'....sounds vaguely appropriate to the Tolkeinesque theme.

It looks like a porno with the rude bits cut out. All the women look as if their clothes are about to drop off. Is this man a German, he sure looks like one.

Re the previous discussion the reason why I loved Green Wing so much was the obvious involvement of women in the writing although you'll tell me, no doubt, that you wrote all the girly gags.

Hey, there's no girly gags, there's just gags. The ruder stuff was mostly Fay and Ori though.

My inner 14-year-old just went "Squee!"

Well, that'll keep the Merlin fans happy for a while...

At least he didn't try "Got me some dogs in there..."

Smat said...

I would so have fancied him when I was younger....

Trust me, you wouldn't. Not with those floppy cuffs. They'd mute the strings.
