Not that musicky. Also, I would almost say NSFW, but I have the day off. [laughing squid]
As previously mentioned, this is an 8-minute movie by Wong Kar Wai, made for a Philips campaign. Embedded for your clicking pleasure.
Previously, I wrote about my extremely unfashionable liking for Ken Nordine’s Word Jazz. I AM NOW DOING SO AGAIN. Despite serious rooting (maybe 15 minutes of it) I was able to uncover only a disappointing number of commercials featuring his voiceover work on YouTube. But onward. (IF THIS DOES NOT SOOTHE YOU, I DON’T KNOW HOW TO HELP.)
For tourism in Wales:
For natural gas (not that trippy):
And, of course, some non-commercial Word Jazz:
The Beatles tune “All You Need Is Love” has been, of late, used in a TV commercial to sell diapers (lyrics changed to “All you need is Luvs”). The London Times writes about the kerfuffle, offering this amusing tidbit: “A Dutch fan said that if Lennon was still alive he would be an advocate of washable cotton nappies.”
Bad news for my beloved Black Eyed Peas (the best worst band ever). Their REVERSE GENIUS magnum opus, “My Humps” (a poetical homage to the singer’s “lovely lady lumps”) has been named most annoying song ever by the readers of Rolling Stone, the most annoying magazine ever.
The top 5:
1. Black Eyed Peas, “My Humps”
2. Los Del Rio, “Macarena”
3. Baha Men, “Who Let The Dogs Out”
4. Celine Dion, “My Heart Will Go On”
5. Nickelback, “Photograph”
Meatloaf and local boys Semisonic also make the top 20.
Interestingly enough, the Chili’s babyback ribs song is nowhere to be found.
