ADAM READS OUT COMMENTS FOR THE APPLE MAC MUSIC VIDEO
Here’s something that the BUG team filmed at BUG 24, The Directors Cut on March 25th 2011 at the BFI. It was a good night despite the fact that I was in the grip of a full blown cold/chesticle infection as you may be able to tell from my voice and somewhat gruesome appearance. Also there’s the bowler hat. I’ve convinced myself this is a good look for me having worn it for our Song Wars Volume 2 photoshoot, but I was also wearing it at BUG because we were showing Garth Jennings’s Radiohead vid that night. It makes me look like a hairy Oddjob here.
The You Tube comment reading at BUG and my own shows is something I’ve been doing for around 3 years now. There’s a few videos of me doing it as part of the BUG playlist (here’s me reading out comments for Enter The Ninja by Die Antwoord) but I think this one gets closer to making it work for You Tube itself. I would still like to try an audience free version commenting on newer videos, more in the style of one of You Tube’s in no way irritating fast-cut behemoths but that may have to wait til I’ve got too much times on my hands again.
To get the most from this video you need to have seen Dennis Liu’s Apple Mac Music Video first. We showed it at BUG when it came out back in 2008 and it was one of the first that I read out comments for. A reminder that these are real comments. If you’re insane you can go and find them for yourself. Don’t hassle the commentators though. That’s how wars start. Hope you enjoy it and do leave your own comments on You Tube or right here on my new look blog, which I believe allows you to sound off beneath posts now. OK, I’m off to write a song for Kate and Wills.
