(The lyrics are way below)

This is simultaneously a reification of the power of Alecia B's music and a parody of one of her most accidentally funny songs. (Really, some of her songs do come off sounding funny when they were not intended to be.) I had this project more or less in my mind ever since I heard this song and decided on making it last month.

By far, this has to be my latest and greatest video I've ever made to date. It is unlike any other I've done in that it is my first music video and for an artist who didn't even make a music video for this song. (And no one else has done it in video game form, either!)

Some scenes I added in at the last minute or changed around to make this music video more interesting. If you are as much of a film aficionado as I am, you can give me a PM here and I'll give you the original screenplay via e-mail just so you can see how different it is from this version. I even taped footage I thought I would use, but did not because I just felt like getting this project done and over with. (I'm going back to college soon.) Maybe I will even make another version in the future with GTAking33 in order to stick more closely to my original vision I had of this music video in my head.

My only wish is that YouTube hadn't so compromised the quality of the video. =( I suppose I could try figuring out how to host this video in uncompressed form via BitTorrent or some other website... oh well.

Here are the lyrics for Pink's original song:

Can't keep me down
Can't keep me down, down
Can't keep me down
I said you can't keep me down
You know you can't keep me down
I said you can't keep me down

Hey, hey, man! What's your problem?
I see you tryin' to hurt me bad
Don't know what you're up against
Maybe you should reconsider
Come up with another plan
Cuz you know I'm not that kinda girl
That'll lay there and let you come first

You can push me out the window
I'll just get back up
You can run over me with your 18 wheeler truck
And I won't give up
You can hang me like a slave
I'll go underground
You can run over me with your 18 wheeler but
You can't keep me down, down, down, down

Can't keep me down, down
Can't keep me down, down, down
Can't keep me down, down

Hey, hey, girl! Are you ready for today?
You got your shield and sword?
Cuz its time to play the games
You are beautiful
Even though your not for sure
Don't let him pull you by the scar
You're gonna get your feelings hurt

You can push me out the window
I'll just get back up
You can run over me with your 18 wheeler truck
And I won't give up
You can hang me like a slave
I'll go underground
You can run over me with your 18 wheeler but
You can't keep me down, down, down, down

You can push me out the window
I'll just get back up
You can run over me with your 18 wheeler truck
And I won't give up
You can hang me like a slave
I'll go underground
You can run over me with your 18 wheeler but
You can't keep me down, down, down, down

Everywhere that I go
There's someone waitin' to chain me
Everything that I say
There's someone tryin' to short-change me
I am only this way
Because of what you have made me
And I'm not gonna break!

You can push me out the window
I'll just get back up
You can run over me with your 18 wheeler truck
And I won't give up
You can hang me like a slave
I'll go underground
You can run over me with your 18 wheeler but
You can't keep me down, down, down, down
