I personally have never really totally understood the whole Lego phenomenon, I mean I have always liked Legos just fine. I loved them as as a kid but never understood the whole Lego versions of things that transformed into video games like say, Batman Lego, Star Wars Lego or Indiana Jones Lego video game style…but maybe I have a new appreciation now for all things LEGO! How can you not when you see punk rock in the Lego universe, it’s all starting to make a little more sense-check it!
Ok so here we are again with some more puppet themed videos!! Hell yeah! So here are a couple more music videos that feature some rad puppets-The first up is Interpol’s “Evil”. As I am not a big fan of the band what I can tell you is that I’m a huge fan of that creepy ass puppet they got in their damn video!! See the band just made themselves totally rad by having a cool puppet in their video-see it’s not that hard to make it I tell you if you just rely on the skills of a puppet and ride it’s coat tails all the way to the top!!! check it:
Ok next up is Weezer’s “Keep Fishin'”. I think we can all kinda agree that Weezer now days just kinda blows and I think Rivers has caught onto that. That’s why he decided to get the mother fucking Muppets into his band’s video! See this a common practice of bands that either aren’t that good or have somehow lost their magic. My simple rule proves true again-add a damn puppet to a music video and suddenly the song rocks ten times harder…

But then I took a closer look at it and all of a sudden I was really into it and borderline obsessing over it. I watched the video over and over. The catchy faux funk baseline over some epic, drawn out guitar lines and vocal melodies had me hooked. But what had me more hooked was the story-line, A FANTASY ADVENTURE starring himself, a lady, a Dr. Doom type villain, several groups of 3 hot ladies, his knife throwing buddy, another buddy, an older buddy, and a fleet of fire welding dragons. Take a look for yourself.
This video now gets me all stoked like watching Lord of the Rings. But what can I say, I’m a sucker for fantasy adventure stories, especially when they involve medieval funk grooves. Who is this “Chris Dane Owens”? I did a little research and this is what I found out. Continue reading
