Today’s unapologetic cheesefest is this sublime slice of cheddar courtesy of Australia. I don’t know what it is about the video (and actually the song a bit too) but it kind of reminds me of Boyzone’s 'Picture Of You'. Some things I love about this video:
- It looks unashamedly late-90s. Those over-saturated colours! That pseudo dance routine! My God, those haircuts.
- The girl ironing, actually ironing, her hair. Umm, what?
- The news anchor in a pale pink suit with the make-up artist in the fluoro-green jacket and bright red skirt. WHY. JUST WHY. MY EYES ARE BURNING. BURNING, I TELL YOU.
- If you squint a bit, John Farnham actually kind of looks like Rik Mayall trying to take the p!ss out of John Farnham.
There’s a lot more additional WTFs going on here, but I’ll leave some (dubious) viewing pleasure down to you.
(And yes, I do quite like the song)
