"Literal Videos" are when you take a music video and sing new lyrics to the
song which describe what is happening in the videos very literally. They have
become an internet fad and I'm proud to say that it all started right here!
  "Take On Me"    Oct 3, 2008 +8 million views!

The one that started it all!

"Take On Me" by A-Ha. With it's stylish 80s animation and a pipe wrench fight!

  "Head Over Heels"    Oct 14, 2008 +2 million views!

By Tears for Fears.

You remember the song, but do you remember that the video features monkeys with gas-masks, a Rabbi-drummer and Dave Coulier?

  "Under The Bridge"    Nov 1, 2008 +1 million views!

By The Red Hot Chili Peppers.

I wanted to see if it would still be funny to do a music video to a newer song that didn't have as goofy of a music video. I think it still worked

This one did a number on my vocals chords. Watch Billy sing about his cool glove, his leather pants and the Goth wedding.

  "Loser"    Aug 19, 2009 +200k views!

By Beck.

The lyrics to my version almost make more sense than the original! Leave it to Beck to create such a random video... perfect for the literal treatment.

By David Bowie.

Once again you know the song, but do you remember the video? I had a particularly fun time singing this one.

  "Sex and Candy"    Nov 19, 2010

By Marcy Playground.

This was the third "literal video" that I wrote, but never thought it was good enough to record. I finally figured what the heck, why not? I used to like this song, but this dumb video was just begging for the literal treatment.

  "Today"    March 23, 2011

By Smashing Pumpkins.

The funnest part of making these is doing the impressions of the singers so I've wanted to do a Smashing Pumpkins song for a long time.

  "The Way"    August 5, 2012

By Fastball.

Figured it was time to do another one of these, and I wanted to use this to bring awareness to my new YouTube channel.
