Pork and Beans

Over on libras_art's journal she posted the most awesomest video ever. On Saturdays we usually gather at our place and in-between watching Doctor Who and movies we share YouTube videos (alex this is where I often show things I find on your journal.) So I was THRILLED when LLL posted this. I missed it in her original post; she talked about it this weekend on our road trip. I think I recognized all but two. How many do you get?

Here's the Wired blog about the video Weezer's Memetastic Video Director Spills the 'Pork and Beans

Here's a deconstruction of the clips used in Pork and Beans. Don't look until after you've watched, of course. Want to understand the viral-video references in Weezer's "Pork and Beans" without having to actually play all 24 source videos? Turns out I'd missed four: Daft, t-shirt, blend & KFed. I recognized K-Fed (sadly) but didn't know the specific video it referred to and the blender seemed familiar but I couldn't place it exactly so I'm not counting it as having "seen it". But I am remedying that as I type...

Also Weezer has a Weezer YouTube channel with some behind the scenes clips of the making of the video/promotion of the video that are really cute. :)

That is SO cool! Took me two hours to download it, but it was worth it!!
=o) I like weezer now! I'd love to hear more stuff from them.

I didn't recognize the long haired guy sitting at the soundboard (was that k-fed?) the big beefy cartoon gay guy and the hands and bodies with the writing on them. <-super cool!!)
There might be another, but I can't think of it atm...

sorry it took so long to download!!! but it was worth it :)
Yeah, that was K-Fed. Technically I didn't recognize him either. My exact thought was "he looks like he could be K-Fed, wonder who he is? Is he with Weezer? Maybe he's the keyboardist since Chocolate Rain guy is playing keyboard for this bit." Which is an awful lot of thought to put into that video! LOL!

The DAFT Dancers were really cool. I loved how they used N & ever and H & our to spell out different words. They did an amazing job. The DAFT hand video was clever in it's idea but he had trouble with putting it into action I think unless my computer was just moving slowly. Because there were times when I couldn't read the words on his hand or when the motion made the text blurry. Other than that, I was amazed by his video. And he did a perfect job in the Weezer video.

And John and I were talking about how we need to look for some Weezer stuff now :) :) :)
And I would like the songs from the DAFT dancer and DAFT hand videos, too.

Remind me saturday that I have another video I want to show you. It's along the lines of "Cute with Chris". Rowan showed it to me and now we're both hooked on him. He's easy on the eyes too... lol...

He's funny, but he doesn't have any pictures of mutant-eyed cats on his webcasts.

Or pens.... bitch. ;)

True. lol. But his humor makes him worth sharing. =)

I'm all for watching :)
I am game for anything funny.

Admittedly, I'm very pro animal pictures... but I'm open to anything.
