So lately I’ve been obsessed with Katy Perry’s song ET. I think the lyrics are horrible and very much emphasizes male dominance over women:
“Take me, ta-ta-take me
Wanna be a victim
Ready for abduction” aka RAPE ME, ALIEN MAN, RAPE ME….
but it’s so damn catchy. (Kind of like the Friday song, but better?…)
Anyways, I decided to make fun of the song by doing a couple mashups. My original idea was to mashup Charlie Sheen Clips with the ET song. But in the interest of time (and so Jim Groom won’t kill me because I’m so late in doing this D:) I also decided to mashup this song with a couple other videos I found randomly. I will try to come back to my original idea, but here’s something for now.
So I found this video on Archive.org website and thought it was really cool and trippy! It seemed to blend in with the song pretty well and I didn’t have to do much editing to put them together:
(Having trouble embedding these videos now, so will figure it out later)
Then for this Boobah/ ET mashup, the original video is really creepy by itself. Yet, once the ET song, it is EVEN MORE CREEPY. Sorry about the video quality, it was the best one I could find on youtube.
NOTE: I really hate Boohbahs. My sister bought me a blue one as an bday one year as a gag gift and ever since I’ve been haunted by their eyes…. Shudder.
I finished the Charlie Sheen video! It’s a lot shorter than I expected, but I think it turned out pretty amazing! 🙂
I’m a huge fan of the trippy government video. It’s definitely trippy and it captures the viewer’s attention well enough to keep you watching/listening to the video.
I love your ET Trippy Government video! The timing is so perfect! The colors really match the song so well. Incredible!
This is seriously really, really good. Did you edit the video to make it fit the video so perfectly? Or was it just naturally arranged that way? It fit really well.
And it turns out I have heard that song — I just didn’t know the name!
Both videos were excellent! I love how the song fits well into both videos. I especially liked the part in the trippy government video with the hamburgers, televisions, and baseballs- it shows how pop culture and the American lifestyle are all part of one big system.
Thanks for the comments! Anddd since you liked these, you should like this ET Charlie Sheen video because it’s pretty hilarious:
@david, I only trimmed down the Boohbah video a bit so it wasn’t such a long intro. but other than that, left as is! (:
I like how you got the song to work out great with the videos! This song is very catchy and it sounds cool haha. Your ET Charlie Sheen Video was funny! You also did a good job putting the scenes together, it flowed good!
Both videos are really awesome. You’re a ds106 pro! E.T. is one of my favorite songs right now too…even though it probably shouldn’t be. Whatever. It’s catchy and I love it. Maybe Katy Perry just has an alien-abduction fantasy.
So I was going through my Google Reader and saw the picture of the Boohbah on your post. My fiance was like ,”What IS that?!” I explained to him what a Boohbah was and he proceeded to get his iPad to watch YouTube videos of them. Then today he printed out a poster of BoohBahs that had written “Happy Birthday Granddaughter” on the top. He crossed out the word birthday and wrote Easter, and he crossed out the word granddaughter and wrote brother. Then he gave this to his brother, who is 22 years old, at Easter brunch. So if it weren’t for the picture of the Boohbah on your blog, I would not have this ridiculous story to tell. 🙂
ahaha this is hilarious! glad I could provide some entertainment to your fam! 😉
