Things I'm Digging: Good Times With LiteralMSPaint
Spouse directed my attention to LiteralMSPaint's "video" for LMFAO's Party Rock Anthem. (Click on "Party Rock Anthem" in the previous sentence for a link to it on YouTube.) I laughed. I cried, but also from laughing. I showed it to the kids. We watched it over and over. And we wondered: how flippin' creative are these people?
Answer: very creative. Delighted to learn that they have their own YouTube channel, which, right now, only features three videos - Party Rock Anthem, Chris Brown's Look at Me Now and Like a G6. (EDITOR'S NOTE: The Chris Brown song is the explicit version. Don't watch with children. You have been warned.) I am hoping that they will add others. And I am hoping that, by publicizing their work effort to date, I will increase the likelihood that that will happen.
You have to watch a couple of times to get all of the subtle nuances. For example, I was initially confused by the Lloyd Dobler stick figure with the boom box.
Then I realized that he represented the concept of "WOO." Get it? Woo? WOO!? Double meaning? Anyway. Now every time I hear "party rock is in the house tonight" the image at the top of this post flashes in my head.
Check it out. I guarantee that you will have a "good time":
