And in other literal news…


You may remember that a few weeks ago we snorted with laughter at the Total Eclipse of the Heart literal video. This past Thursday, Simon Owens of Bloggasm posted an interview with its creator, David Scott. It’s got some cool glimpses of what goes on behind-the-scenes in creating these videos.

[I]t’s not just a matter of replacing the lyrics, but also managing to uphold and mimic the inflection and context of the original lyrics, matching up how they’re being presented. This creates a kind of authenticity of the satire because it correlates with the “cognitive memory” of the original.

Check out the entire interview here. But first check out Scott’s latest [freaking hilarious] literal video, Air Supply’s Making Love Out Of Nothing At All.
