Friday Videos Fan Themselves

Lynz sent me this link, and said, “I was channel-surfing the other day and paused when I saw a shot of an attractive man taking his shirt off – wow, that's a really awkward first sentence, I should start thinking more before I write. Anyway, my attention was thoroughly caught and I stopped to watch the video. Seconds later, what did I see but a Harlequin Suspense being used as a fan? I was thinking the video was really cute, until I hit the 2:20 mark, at which point I realized that it was the Best. Music video. Ever. Once I stopped laughing at the ending, I realized that other romance readers might get a kick out of it. Which made me think of you! “

Lynz is right – I thought this was adorable. And someone involved in the making of this video really likes romance novels.


Cool thing I learned: the video was produced with the help of MuchFACT, which is a Canadian fund that helps Canadian musicians produce music videos.  Interesting fact: “Many of Canada's most influential recording artists received VideoFACT funding for their early recordings, including Sam Roberts, K-os, Céline Dion, k.d. lang, Matthew Good, The Pursuit of Happiness, Bran Van 3000, Lara Fabian, Blue Rodeo,Rascalz, Sloan, Jean Leloup, Great Big Sea, Sarah McLachlan, Death From Above 1979, Dubmatique, Aspektz and Ashley MacIsaac among others.” Canada, you are so freaking cool sometimes I don't know what to do with myself.

I hope you have a weekend full of books so great you have to wash the car and fan yourself a lot.

    That was so awesome!  Man, I love Carly Rae Jepsen.  Remember when she was on Canadian Idol and she did that Bond girl/trenchcoat thing? 

    Or am I the only one who was still watching Canadian Idol by the fifth season…

    Hah!  In fairness, the whole “love at first sight” idea is utterly superficial: “He/she is so handsome/beautoful, they *must* be wonderful on the inside too!”  Fortunately, mamy romance novels only reach their HEA when the characters learn, and learn to appreciate, that it’s what’s on the inside that counts.  (KInda bathetic for an analysis of a music video, but still..)

    This is marvelous—and I agree, there should have been a wind machine.

    I wonder what that poem is on his side . . . no cougarish reasons, just curiosity.

    I admit… I laughed when she fell off the car.  However, I hate you for showing me this because my 18 month old keeps wanting to dance to it.  So now I’ve listened to this video at least 20 times in a row.  It’s a good song but it’s not THAT good.

    Words can not express! Just let me say that I just spent 45 minutes (normally 20) getting from satellite to main office because it’s coming down an inch an hour in the Chicago suburbs, and I have to be here for at least an hour before what looks to be a 60 minute (normally 15) ride home and this? This just put the biggest smile on my face. THANKS!!

    *GIGGLESNORT* That is too funny! But I wish you’d posted a Liquids Alert(tm)! ;)

    She does a nice “Sunshine on my shoulders” too, but I have not seen a video for that.  Its the song we use in the morning to make Mommy stop screaming at two toddlers to hurry up before they are late for preschool.  Maybe you know what I mean.  Thanks SBTB!

    So, besides single payer medical insurance and Banff, the Canadians also have MuchFACT?  Why oh why didn’t my grandparents emigrate to Toronto instead of New York?

    Back in the day, MUCHfact was known as VideoFact, and most Canadian acts’ first videos were VideoFact productions because they had no money to put out videos. I was the only one of my friends to have Pay TV which included Muchmusic, 1984 began my addiction. Ah, the good old days. I’ve purged the video addiction and replaced it with romance novels.

    By the way, Matthew Good = best Canadian musician EVAH! Check him out on youtube.
