My brother likes watching the music channels, I happened to watch this:

Is this for real? Is it a piss-take? Is it just me or is this the biggest piece of crap music video/song ever?

I mean, their last two singles were pretty terrible, but this one takes the cheesy biscuit.

Anyway, let’s have a look.

That slow singing at the beginning, where he’s dressed as some kind of arab, what’s going on there? And is that another pair of novelty sunglasses I can see? Moving on, to where he’s riding an elephant accross a desolate planet.. what? Yes, because that makes sense. It’s OK, he mentioned the word “galaxy” so they stuck Jupiter with Saturn’s rings in the background.

Now the chap in the astronaught suit, where does that fit in? Why do some words j-j-j-jump a bit? Further on, the bloke digs up something, which he turns to make some wierd reflective polygons rotate, causing everyone else in the video to stare. A bit of arm-raising and lighting effects later they turn into meteors. FIN.

I saw this band last night.

They were great, basically. Not much of a review, Alison was gorgeous as usual.

The song selection wasn’t fantastic, but then again they have only one album. Really good band though.

Heard this on the radio the other day
