Oh hell Ya! Where to start with the Rad-ness that is this video. The pink spandex, the mime dancing, the "television is for losers"... loved it. Nice shot up through the drum.

That looked like a fairly serious production, and well done. It was great to watch yours and the original back to back to fully realize the care taken in the shooting/editing. Great song.

The 80's Rule!

man... i wish i had a band... even a fake band to do something like this.... i thought you guys were going to step up with "the humps" video.. .but you guys took it one step further.. one HUGE step further.

and it's an 80's song! my god man.... you took the 80's and made it web 2.0! that's brilliant.

Actually made a statement, albeit a worn one, which is very rare for vloggers I think. Incredible production value, minus aesthetic issues with cinematography and set design. All hail the psychoelectric auteurs.

This takes me back, way back to that special day when I went to a friend's house to witness the birth of music video because my Mom was too cheap to get cable.

Nice leotard, dude!
