Video plus lipsynching equals fun

You know those days when you come home to an empty house, having spent half the morning in a hospital gown and a doctor doing ultrasound scans on your testicles, and then half the afternoon trying to work your way through a pile of immediate website fixes before getting to the stuff that you promised someone in another unit that you’d finish in two days and that was three and a half weeks ago?

Well, this video is something akin to an antidote to those kind of days. According to b3ta.com this is “just a bunch of Americans mucking around and miming to Harvey Danger‘s ‘Flagpole Sitta’.”

But I think we all know that it’s more than that. This video embodies the hope of a new generation, it questions the fundamentals of western civilisation as we know it, it captures the Zeitgeist of … oh, just watch the video and make up your own mind.

It made me smile.

  1. oh no, more ultrasounding? poor you! perhaps you should invest in your own personal urology department so you don’t have to travel to hospitals all the time…loved the video, but think perhaps these yanks have FAR TOO MUCH FREE TIME!!

  2. OK, witness the facts in that video:
    1. It’s amusing
    2. Everyone in that office is under 35
    3. Most in that office are dressed uber casually, except for two in jackets
    4. They’re drinking beer
    5. It’s the middle of the day
    6. There are no fat people

    My diagnosis… It’s a marketing agency
