If you or anyone you know are, have been or ever will be 57, then this song is for you. Dedicated to my parents, who at one point were 57. --UPDATE-- My parents are no longer 57. They have since turned 60 and got a song for that as well... http://youtu.be/48y3B3wEqAY
Dozens of inquiries are anticipated to come pouring in at the release of this video. Listed below are the questions that I know everyone will be dying to ask. Or not. These could just be coming from the voices in my head....
Q: How did you come up with the idea for this song?
A: My parents turned 57.
Q. What does this video have to do with the 80s?
A. I believe my Pac-man Ghosts and Orko t-shirts speak for themselves. Also, I have been told more than once that the song sounds a little like Peter Gabriel. Singing like Peter Gabriel, wearing 80s shirts... seriously, how is this video not 80s-related? ;-)
Q: What is that thing that keeps popping out in the top left corner in some of the frames?
A: A Scrabble board.
Q: Who was filming? Couldn't they keep the camera steady?
A: The camera was mounted on a tripod, but apparently either the Scrabble board or the camera could not stop dancing to the music (perhaps caused by a predefined image stabilization setting, or something, I don't know). I didn't realize what was going on until after I was done filming, at which point I lacked the time and energy to reshoot.
Q: Why do you have a Scrabble board on your wall?
A: In a house full of small children, game boards are often put to better use as wall decorations, rather than playing games on them.
Q: You're not pulling a Corey Vidal, are you, like in that John Williams a cappella video? Is that really you singing?
A: No, no. That is my voice you are hearing.
Q: Where did you learn those dance moves?
A: Before shooting this, I reviewed my How To Dance Like A White Guy instructional guide: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2HiuCa...
Q: Did you just do the Macarena? That was sweet.
A: Yes, I did. Thanks.
Q: What characters are on your t-shirts?
A: Top left: Orko; Top right: Figment; Bottom left: Beaker; Bottom right: Pac-man ghosts
Q: How did you find the time to make this?
A: When you have a dream, and that dream is to make a cheesy song and video celebrating your parents' 57th birthday, then you make the time.
Q: This song rocks. I want to listen to it everywhere I go. Where can I download a free MP3?
A: Here: http://ccmixter.org/files/cuajitoben/...
