I thoroughly enjoy watching music videos that can best be described, “What the fuck?” A friend of mine, Omar Gallaga, recently shared the following video on Google+ and I have to say, it took the WTF? cake. The video is courtesy of Jamaican-British Dancehall duo Diplo and Switch under the name Major Lazer:
Until I saw this one the next day thanks to my friend Ben Hawk. It is by American-Canadian DJ duo Duck Sauce:
“Pon de Floor” is much more shocking, what with its frantic (and acrobatic!) dry humping and “I dropped too much acid” background. The video also seemed as though this may be what our Sims do on Sims Social when we’re not playing with them. “Big Bad Wolf” is, on the other hand, hilarious. I laughed while saying, “What the hell?” Then I watched it again. And again. Both videos and the musical acts behind them clearly set out to create a video that stood apart from the crowd of gyrating, “ooh look at me!” videos that too often make sex boring instead of exciting (Britney, I’m looking at you). Well, Mission Accomplished.
