Literal Videos

I'm knee deep in to Summer Symposium at Savvy Authors. I decided a non-speculative related post is needed for a mental break this last weekend in August. Hope you enjoy!

Have you ever notice when watching a music video how it doesn't always match the song?

There are members of YouTube who have noticed and decided to take matters into their own hand. They create literal videos where they sing lyrics that match the music video. Literal videos are down right hilarious at times and most are on the mark. Watch the video to a view one of the first literal videos done.

This is not my favorite one but it started the movement. The original songs doesn't reflect the video and I never understood why it didn't when I was younger. The lyrics match the video well and the guy can sing too!

The one below I love and watch every few months for laughs. Unfortunately, the creator won't let me embed the video so here is the link to visit.

Total Eclipse of the Heart: Literal Video Version

The video was creepy before but the literal version makes it even more creepy. *shudders*

There are many more literal videos available on YouTube. And you will find some great singers as well. Go ahead and search for them on there and let me know your which ones you liked and post the link below.

Very fun! I'd never seen a literal video before. Thanks. And I do need to get over the the Symposium and check in on a workshop I signed up for.

You're welcome Marsha!

I signed up for too many of them. There isn't enough time in a day to work on all of them.

Haha! The 'Take On Me' video never made sense to me either. Thanks for the laugh, Marilyn!
