Humpday Literal Musicavisualocity

Technorati tags: , , ,

Some people call Wednesday hump day. No, not because it’s a day to get all fuck-a-delic, or anything like that. Quite literally, Wednesday falls smack in the middle of the work week (if you count from Monday) – just like a hump in the middle of a camel’s back.

And if today goes well, the rest of the week should also. In theory at least, and barring any other stupid tragedies like what we saw last week.

But sometimes it needs a little help from the unexpected. Well, this time, it came in the form of a music video of a song from the 80’s. But if you’re having something to eat or drink – STOP before you watch the video. Don’t say Walski didn’t warn you…

This choice find is courtesy of blogger Geminianeyes, who clued Walski to the hilarious video. Wel, Walski and the rest of the Twitterverse.

Thanks @geminianeyes – you just made Walski’s week. And his knees weak – from laughter. 
(Literal music videos galore, in the full post)

Done rolling on the floor, yet?

Apparently, the original literal music videos were created by a filmmaker named Dustin McLean, aka Dustball, who operates Dust Films. You can view his hilarious literal takes on A-Ha’s Take On Me, Tears For Fears’ Head Over Heels, Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Under The Bridge, and Billy Idol’s White Wedding, all neatly compiled on one web page (and also available on YouTube).

After watching the Bonnie Tyler video literalization – and literally almost spewing a mouthful of coffee onto his keyboard and desk – Walski did a little digging around YouTube, and found a whole host of music video literal makeovers.

There are a lot more that Walski didn’t bother checking out, but here are the best ones that he’s found so far.

R.E.M. - Losing My Religion
Staind Creed - With Arms Wide Open
Meat Loaf - Anything For Love
The Starship - We Built This City

That should tide you over for a bit, Walski reckons. Any more, and you’ll probably tear a tummy muscle – and Walski wouldn’t want you to do that.

Well, enjoy your hump day… and hope that these funnies help you get thru the rest of the week, happily ever after…
