Snacember 21

Whose dumb idea was this Snack a Day December anyway?  Yeesh.  Even I am bored of me, and I LOVE ME.  Seriously.  I could spend hours with me.

It seemed like such a good idea back in November, when I was bathed in the afterglow of a delicious Thanksgiving.  But here I am, ten days to go, and lets be honest...pickin's are getting a little slim in the old idea file. 

So today, I give you, for no particular reason...

Literal Video Total Eclipse of the Heart

Because if you are working a normal job, this is the week you spend futzing around online pretending to work, and counting hours till you are released for the holiday weekend.

If you are not familiar with the Literal Video movement, it is videos of popular songs, many of them from the 80s, my favorite decade, redubbed with lyrics that describe the action in the video.  Literally. 

I dunno about you, but they make me laugh till I almost pee myself.  So I thought I would share my favorite.

What are your guilty pleasure YouTubes? Share with the class...

Yours in Good Taste,
The Polymath


  1. This has long been my favorite literal video, if not my favorite real video of all time. It is just so delightfuly creepy. "Take On Me" is another good literal video.

    Also, I've loved these daily postings, and will be sad when they are no more.

  2. Oh, awesome!

    Another blog I just flipped past on my google reader had titled the most recent post 'Total Eclipse of the Heart' because she uses song titles for her blog titles, and there was an eclipse last night, and etc, etc. So, I was already singing 'turn around, bright eyes' in a breathy voice in my head, over and over and over again. And now I will be watching this on repeat. Because it is fabulous.

    As are you, of course :)

  3. I've enjoyed reading each little tidbit, but I can imagine it could be a drag coming up with something every single day!
    I love Sassy Gay Friend on Shakespeare....

    and the Bears came through last night! Da Bears!

  4. I'm not bored of you. I've loved your little snacks!

  5. Stacey, I don't know what rock I've been under, but I've never seen that before... hilarious! Thanks so much for sharing that little snack!
