Comedy gold: “Total Eclipse of the Heart,” the literalist remix

posted at 1:55 pm on May 30, 2009 by Allahpundit

The A-ha remix was good, the Tears for Fears remix was better, but this tops them both. How could it not? They had an infamously bombastic song and arguably the worst music video ever made to work with. It’s like taking a free throw from half the standard distance aimed at a hoop that’s twice regulation size. Swish.

Here’s another literalist video I haven’t seen mentioned yet, and it’s worthy of mention: Journey’s Separate Ways…a music video just begging to be made fun of.

Granted, the singer for this version is a far cry from Stephen Perry, but what it lacks in production values it more than makes up for in comedy.
