I don't normally watch music videos...I think I will still blame MTV for that, even though I probably wouldn't watch them even if they still played music. However, I love that the really "good" ones can get passed around YouTube with relative ease...still affording me the opportunity to feel connected with Top40 even though I gave up radio years ago.
I happened across this Ke$ha video, titled "Blow." I normally hate watching Ke$ha videos because so much of my brain space is consumed trying to figure out if she is pretty or hideous...she is pretdious. She could be a really cute girl with some coaching, but instead she just looks wrecked. (wrecked = hungover, tired, bad skin, poor spray tan, britney spears-esque weave) Or more accurately, she looks like the Ghost of Dina Lohan Past...but autotuned.
Anyhow, this is not meant to be a rant about Ke$ha, just an explanation why I don't like looking at her. Her music makes me tap my feet and maybe even sing along...so all in all, she is good in my books.
BUT THIS.... THIS JEWEL! It contains a magical creature that I didn't believe existed...and no, I am not referring to the unicorns, rainbows, or Ke$ha's eyebrows. I am talking about James Van Der Beek's sense of humor!!!
(please bear with whatever stupid red lobster commercial you have to watch first...its worth it!)
Watch carefully around minute 2:20... (and if autotune hurts your ears, 2:20 is about the place to take it off mute, too!)
Favorite line? "I don't appreciate you Slander Beeking my name." It is basically a hilarious admission that he is no longer relevant. I appreciate a washed up teen star who owns that shit and has a sense of humor about him!
Well done Van Der Beek...I just watched a whole Ke$ha video with only mild hints of shame and regret.
