snagged from kellymck  
her facebook account, anyway. There's a bit in the middle that isn't all that funny, but it finds it's feet again by the end.

As an added bonus, the only other 'literal video' I'd seen prior to this. Oh, A-ha. I still sort of adore you!

hey... rich text is working on Safari. when the hell did that happen?

Peregrine "forced" the Bonny Tyler one on me last night. If you plunk "literal videos" into your favorite search engine, you can find a ton of them. From what I've read, the "Take on Me" video is the first (and the first one I saw). Lots of fun, no? Wish I was half that clever...

Somehow Billy Idol singing, "Pirouette!!" just makes me laugh.

And the Penny Lane one just....makes me happy.


Turns out there are actually a LOT on YouTube if you have the time to waste, but some of the singing is more tolerable than others.

I had never seen the original video before though I definitely know the song (I'm not THAT young!). But - IT IS SO RIDICULOUS!! Seriously, wtf Meatloaf?!

The literal version just made it seem that much better :)
