LITERAL VIDEO VERSIONS
Rank: George Ivan Awesomeoff
Nominated by Ivan Awesomeoff

Special Selection July 2009

Litteral video versions are pretty big fad on YouTube, but the art is being perfected more with each posted video. The concept is simple, there is nothing more pretentious and random than your average 1980's music video. You listen to the song, and maybe don't fully pay attention to how completely lame the visual story is in the video.

Fast forward 25 years, and some talented artists are re-recording new lyrics to these lame visuals, and the result is pure gold. The first video in this playlist has more awesome than can be taken in just one viewing.

"What the effing crap, that angel guy just felt me up" - pure genius

I think the Ah-ha one is great, but I can not find the original. I'm not going to post the one with that douche from digg, I want the original without the intro or starwars crap at the end. I just can't find it! reply high five

Fair enough, the intro and extro are veryh annoying! reply high five

Take On Me (complete version) http://www.dustfilms.com/literalvideos This also has Dustin's other three literal videos. Take On Me and Under The Bridge were banned from his YouTube account (though other YT users repost them). Dust Films (DustoMcNeato on YT) originated the literal video. The four by him, and the eight by DASjr Productions (dascottjr on YT) seem to be the most highly regarded, though HomeStarRunnerTron's two are well-produced, and worth a look. reply high five
