Literal videos

A former KLIV colleague, John Lee, pointed these out to me on Facebook. The concept: What if people in the music videos were actually singing about what they were doing? The result is "Literal Videos."

Here are the four videos by the guy who originated them:
  1. "Take on Me" by A-ha:

  2. "Head Over Heels" by Tears For Fears:

  3. "Under the Bridge" by The Red Hot Chili Peppers:

  4. "White Wedding" by Billy Idol:

Apparently some of the videos have been pulled off of YouTube because Warner Records thinks there's some kind of copyright violation. The Electronic Frontier Foundation is already taking up the cause, noting that this is clearly fair use as a parody and that the guy who did them isn't making any money off them.
