(Also watch the Bonus Video - by The Muppets!)
We have been writing about 10th most popular all time YouTubeStar VenetianPrincess since October 2006! She has always made creative and funny videos. In the early days, she did her funny skits. Lately she makes amazing parodies of well known pop songs and pokes fun at celebrities. In her latest vid, VP makes herself up to look like Britney Spears and sings a parody song about Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt, a couple who achieved fame after starring in MTV's "The Hills". You'll laugh at the lyrics but not VP's singing voice, which is excellent!
VenetianPrincess has been making great parodies for three years now on YouTube, and it has made her the 10th Most Subscribed YouTuber! But Weird Al Yankovic has been singing parodies of pop songs since the late 70s. You've probably seen the videos for "Eat It" and "Like a Surgeon" at some point in your life. (This video of Al's song "eBay" has over 25 million views and is funny too!) Well, here's a fan made live action video for Al's funny tune, "Hardware Store" from his 2003 album "Poodle Hat." I think it is as good as many others I've seen on MTV and other video TV shows over the years. Check it out!
The video is by UK uni student lazyorangenet and this is the description:
As part of my BA we have to create a "pop promo/music video". For this I've picked Weird Al's awesome "Hardware Store" After many long nights working on storyboards and anamatics (see my other videos) we finally had a final piece put together. Which I'm very happy to say got a rather good mark of 80.
Update: I should probably point out that 80 is a VERY good mark in UK Universities, whilst it is out of 100, 70 is a 1st which is the best you can get (3rd, 2:2, 2:1, 1) so I got the best, then some.
There are no swears in this song, and yes you do hear "automatic circumciser" which isn't what you think it is. Google for the full lyrics.
You may have seen some of the many "Google Image" based videos for this song. This is a live action "real" version, the only one I know of in existence too. It was created entirely from scratch, filmed, edited and post production by myself, Dave Hartly & Christian Allan. Enjoy what we've created, I hope you like it.
Oh and finally a HUGE thank you to everyone who has watched, rated and commented on this video, its been hugely more popular than I could ever of imagined, glad you guys like it.
I am a big fan of Nightwish! Nightwish are a symphonic powergothic metal band from Finland, formed in 1996. Nightwish is Finland's most successful band with more than 5 million sold albums worldwide. Their music reminds one of Iron Maiden and similar 80s metal acts, but what sets them apart is their female singer Tarja Turunen who is classicly trained and has an operatic voice. (Since May 2006, Anette_Olzon sings for Nightwish.)
In 19 May, 2000, Nightwish released their third studio album Wishmaster which debuted at #1 on the Finnish album charts, and following three weeks at number one, was certified gold in Finland. The song "Wishmaster" is one of Nightwish's greatest hits. Since Nightwish is a Finnish band and the singer has a classical opera vocal style, it is often difficult to make out the words to this popular song. Kewen (I'm Erin, I'm from London and I'm a GIRL... I make films and clothes...) made this humorous attempt at deciphering the lyrics; watch and enjoy this vid which today has 8,542,318 views!
