It's Tuesday and so on and so forth...finished this last night, but instead I chose to watch the Ricky Gervais special (which I fully endorse). The staging for the Gervais special included five, 1.5 stories high, letters spelling out R I C K Y behind the tubby comedian. Yet another image reminiscent of the Elvis 68 Comeback Special.
Anyhow, I stumbled upon the clip below sometime last week -I can't remember why - but I've decided to post it for a few reasons.
1. It's a music video that's essentially about the perils of making a music video.
2. As it attempts to mock other videos of its era, it fails to come out on top, suffering from all the ills of its time that it makes fun of. It's like a greatest hits...of crap.
3. It pokes fun at David Lee Roth mid way through. Or maybe it honors him, you be the judge.
4. It has the potential to reopen the debate as to who was a better solo performer (this time a three way comparison). Phil Collins? Peter Gabriel? Sting? Head to head (to head).
