The Glamour Boyz: Beware Of Found Footage
Every day Rocks Off trolls the tubes of you in search of videos to share. If you have something that you think deserves to be video of the day, send a link to jef_rouner at yahoo dot com.
One of your daily video guide's favorite people is Rocks Off's own Craig Hlavaty. His articles are well-written, his musical knowledge is deep, and sending him to godawful shows is always hilarious.
When he sends us videos, though, it's something of a mixed blessing. Last time we used one of his suggestions, a gun-toting karaoke singer belting out Lionel Richie's "Hello," it ended up sparking a political firestorm and we couldn't get the damn thing out of our head for weeks. We doubt anyone but rabid Michael Jackson fans will riot over his latest offering, but it's just as mind-raping as other things he's sent to us.
The Found Footage Festival is exactly what it says it is. Hidden on a tape found here in Houston which was featured in the festival and also contained the 1990 Lakewood Yacht Awards was a music video for The Glamour Boyz's "Bluejay."
Now, if you can't decide whether to rip off Sexual Harassment's "I Need a Freak" or Michael Jackson's "Billie Jean" then the only logical thing is to do both at once. While you're at it, bust some dance moves that make House Party look like House Party 3.
Why not dress like an act cut from Purple Rain just to top it all off? After all, some half-ass journalist might need a video to mock 20 years later.
