When MTV Played Videos – 9.21.12

(By YetiVedder)

If this isn’t one of the greatest songs ever written about 99 luft balloons then I don’t know what is?  Any song that uses another language is okay in my book.  Think about some of the best songs ever written that were in a foreign language.  Songs like Macarena by Los Del Rio, Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen, or Bawitiba by Kid Rock.  You add a foreign language and you have a guaranteed hit!  Bonus points if you can tell me what language is spoken in those 3 songs!  I can’t believe I brought Queen into this.

But I digress….

The effects in this video are amazeballs!  Different colors of smoke?  Check!  Really feminine men wearing scarves?  Check!  A band playing at a lumber yard?  Check!  Nena is a stonecold fox in this video.  By the way I love how it goes from daylight to night in the video.  It was like the director told the band they had the camera for 8 hours and they had to finish this video today or else!  Then at the 2:53 point BOOM!  Explosions!  There are bombs going off but does Nena even flinch?  No way my friend!  They are like the band going do with the Titanic, but this band is going out with really bad hair and some sweet, sweet synth!

How should Nena end the song?  How about we film it like a horror movie scene right before someone gets murdered?  PERFECT!  Only then did Nena know she had the perfect music video.

About yetivedder

Straight outta Cumberland, R.I. is a crazy mother f'er named Yeti. I will steal your food, drink, and girl all while you are not looking. He might actually do it while you are looking but be very polite while taking all three. He will also do it in that order mainly because he is always hungry, thirsty, and horny! The Yeti will throw the greatest party that you won't remember, because he needs to remain a figment of your imagination. He wants the ladies to think that they may or may not have made love to a giant man last night while feeding him a steak and cheese sandwich! The Yeti is all about getting people to make bad decisions, but yet these bad decisions just feel so right. The Yeti is a diehard sports fan and is never afraid to show his team colors. He also isn't afraid to talk about himself in the third person like the greatest of all time Ricky Henderson! Yeti Likes: Easy women, cheap beer, expensive beer being given out for free, Red Sox baseball KFC and all, Lakers basketball, Metta World Peace, Bruins, Mashmond, Patriots, and bringing Randy Moss back! Easy women, URI basketball, old school WWF wrestling... Yeah I said F!, J's Deli samiches. Sponsor the Yeti page with some free sandwiches!!! More beer, and easy women! Tupac, Biggie, Snoop, Dre, Jay-Z Yeti dislikes: Wine drinkers that think they are better then me, Yeti hunters on TV that have no idea where Yeti's hang out! Hard women... Take that however you'd like... New school WWE, Any rapper with Lil or a direction in their name. Models who refuse to date me, when all I want to do is feed them. Relish of any kind... It is a Yeti kyrptonite.

    I love how she trips around the 1:17-1:18 mark. “We can’t afford any re-takes, Nena! Just keep walking!”
