Grinning Revi!  ^_^

grins like the insane man he is while Indian music plays in background

Wow. I tell you what, wow.


sa7chan showed me a music video from an Indian musician named Daler Mehndi called "Tunak Tunak Tun," and let's just say I'm obsessed. Obsessed is too weak a word, the song is glued to my head and wouldn't come off if you applied universal solvent to it. Here's the original music video from YouTube: Tunak Tunak Tun (Best Copy).

WHY is this man not popular in America????? Yes, yes, I know, most people aren't geeks like me who get catchy weird Indian songs stuck in their heads, but it's such a fun little song! I've listened to it several times now, and I'm grinning like a Cheshire cat!

For some reason, I want to do a Black Lagoon AMV to this thing. Yes, I know, I'm obsessed with that too. It's just, somehow I think it could be funny, if to no one else then to myself. The trouble is, to do it well (i.e., how I am envisioning it) would take a tremendous amount of skill. I would want to lipsynch a lot of the words to Revi and the others speaking. It would also require digital effects and m4d 3d171ng skillz; at the very least, I would want to import a couple images of stacks of dollar bills (to the part of the song that sounds like "Dollar, dollar, ..."), which, oddly enough, doesn't show up so often in BL as I recall.

I see this thing as coming out like the Tainted Donuts AMV. It would have a kind of a plot. It would be a very loose plot, but that's beside the point. Ah well, it's a fun idea. Say what you think.
