Oh, music videos. We love you, but sometimes you are ridiculous. (Born This Way, anyone? O_O)
Every once in a while, someone gets to the bottom of this weirdness and graciously mocks music videos for our benefit. Exhibit 1: Literal Music Videos, wherein the actual lyrics of a song are replaced by what is literally being shown in the music video. This is the literal version of Total Eclipse of the Heart (Bonnie Tyler):
We think this is a brilliant way to get the creative juices flowing and warm up your ridiculosity muscles (for writing). So here’s your challenge. Take the following absolutely bizarre music video by MGMT, literalize a certain moment of it, and share it in comments. Example: “@5:07 Floppy awkward running and whatthefoo your body popped — your face is now hotdogs.” Be sure to give the time of your literalization. OR give comment with other examples of ridiculous music videos.
That is all.
