By now, unless you've been living in Antarctica, you've heard the song "Somebody That I Used to Know" by Gotye, a song that is basically your typical, "you were a crap girlfriend", "oh no, you were the idiot boyfriend" -- just set to a catchy beat.
Actually, I lie. Some penguins HAVE heard this song and were seen pushing their ex-significant others into the water.
Lying in bed for weeks has given me some extra time on my hands and YouTube can entertain me for way more hours than it should. I found two parodies of this song that I love for different reasons. I know a lot of people don't like to click on videos in blogs, but I hope you will enjoy.
First up, we have "what really happens when the song comes on the radio".
The first minute I thought, "oh, boring, just two guys who are going to Mystery Science Theater 3000 this thing", but then STARTLE! And both Rick and I giggled the rest of the way.
The thing is, I get it. I DESPISE the song "Hotel California". Yet I know every. single. word. And why, when I know those words, do I have to sing it? Gah!!!
This last video, though, is a true work of art. Zack is a huge Star Wars fan and had to explain a couple of references to me, but even if you don't know a thing about the films George Lucas USED to write, you can still enjoy the work that went into this. It mimics the visuals of the actual video, which I'll just let you find on YouTube.
I hope you enjoyed this fun little waste of time. I think I might make this a regular "Filler Feature" when my brain is too dead to write cogently.
And just be glad I didn't bring out the "Gangnam Style" parodies.
