I've been a fan of Jonny McGovern's hilarious gay-oriented music videos for years, so I was glad to see a new one pop up in Submitterator. Normally I'd let a video like this speak for itself, but I'd like to highlight a few key lyrics that just make it:
I be sexy strippin'
We can read science fiction
while we make science friction.
You and I, we can fly
with Bill Nye the Science Guy.
I'll be working your shaft
while you play World of Warcraft.
We can get our freak on
in the bathroom at Comic Con.
If you're not comfortable with hunky men dancing around in their underwear, you may not want to watch this video. That's as racy as it gets, though.
Thanks allenh! [Video Link]
Genius work from Joe Sabia, for the nonprofit Mama Hope.
This is the second video in Mama Hope's "Stop the Pity. Unlock the Potential" campaign. This video campaign is about telling the story of connection instead of contrast and potential instead of poverty. Directed by Joe Sabia and Bryce Yukio Adolphson. Shot and Edited by Bryce Yukio Adolphson. Sound Mix by Matt McCorkle. Produced by Nyla Rodgers.
The video is something of an homage and re-singing of Paul Simon's "Call Me Al," off the album Graceland.
Frequent fliers on Virgin America who watch our in-flight Boing Boing television channel on the airline, and regular readers of this blog, will also recall another great video Joe Sabia did with Mama Hope: "Alex Teaches Commando." If you missed it before, you need to watch it now.
The song, and the video, which apparently led to Die Antwoord's divorce from Interscope to go independent. This will be the first single to be released off their soon-to-be-self-released album TEN$ION.
Warning: If you are afraid of spiders or scorpions, you should not watch this video.
