Eric Warheim Awesome Music Videos Great Job!

Riddle me this! What do The Bird and The Bee, MGMT, and Ben Folds have in common? They’ve all got music videos directed by Eric Warheim (of Tim & Eric fame). I had seen the Ben Folds vid, but the other two came to me via JQ

The Bird and the Bee – Polite Dance Song 

Ben Folds (and Regina Spektor) – You Don’t Know Me

MGMT – The Youth

I think this one might be my favorite – not because it’s the funniest, but because there’s just something really sad about it. Stylistically, it hits the same beats as the other two (and a lot of Tim & Eric comedy in general): awkward, absurd, real-people humor (that is, 80’s and 90’s glamor shot versions of real people). But in this case, I feel like the video and lyrics are a little more thematically intertwined.

Adam West Gets Intimate

 

Adam West admiring Adam West.

Adam West admiring Adam West.

While we may never get the 1960’s Batman show on DVD over studio disputes, I’m happy to say that Adam West apparently doesn’t care. Nope, he’s taken it into his own hands to record his memories of the show while he still has time ticking on the ol’ bat-clock, and has sent a preview of the footage directly to the die-hard fans!

What I really love about Adam West is that he manages to stay goofy and funny in the most self-reflexive way, even when he’s pushing 80-something. If this edited-together preview is any indicator, it looks like there’ll be a lot of Lookwell-esque comedy…or is that simply Adam West comedy?

I’d go so far as to say that he’s carved out his own stylistic comedic niche. He’s literally the Batman of comedy, and I don’t think you can get any more badass than that.
