When I was in high school, MTV first came on the air. (Yes…I know…I’m old. Whatever.) Anyway, I watched it whenever I could (at my friends’ since my parents refused to get cable) and was totally fascinated by it. The first time I saw Bonnie Tyler’s Total Eclipse of the Heart, my response was, FWUH? I couldn’t figure out what the hell that bizarre-ass video and its shades of pedophilia had to do with the angsty love song.
Well…I still don’t know, but I’m thrilled to report that some freaking genius has made a literal video of Total Eclipse of the Heart. If you’re not familiar with literal videos, it’s where someone sings a voice over of the original song with lyrics about what’s happening in the video.
I. Love. This. Video. (okay, the talking in the middle is pretty lame, but the rest of it makes me laugh until I cry.) I hope you guys enjoy it, too. I think the balls/metaphor line is my favorite…or maybe it’s the ninjas…I can’t decide.
