Forgotten Classic Video of the Week

This week's vid is for a Rick Astley hit that is neither "Never Gonna Give You Up" nor "Together Forever." Yep, it's the other one. You're welcome.

Wow, I had forgotten how clingy and needy Rick was. Perhaps if he hadn't come on so strong so fast with his constant declarations of everlasting love, things could've worked out. But by the time he got around to proclaiming that "It Would Take A Strong, Strong Man" to ever let us go, his obsessive behavior had everyone a little freaked out. And follow-up singles like, "Leaving Is Not An Option," "Not Acceptin' This Separation," "Pick Up The Phone (I Know You're Home)," "Your PFA Can't Stop My TLC," and "Loadin' My Gun With Love," only made things worse.*

* Rick would never tell a lie, but I might.

Nothing says "creep" like "loading my gun with love"... jesus.

Prior to this post I had no idea who this guy was, but now I know to be extra careful when in poorly-lit parking lots at night.

That faux motivational poster (what are we calling these things?) is hilarious.

I gotta love Rick as a fellow redhead. It's Ginger Rule #1.

Okay people, now I had to tack on a little quasi-disclaimer to the end of this post. I guess I shouldn't assume that everyone will understand when I'm being sarcastic. When I assume, it makes an ass out of u. Only u. Not me. I'm still awesome.

Unless your comments were sarcastic. Hmmm....hadn't thought about that. This is awkward.

That is the most convoluted Rickroll I have ever encountered.

If "Pick Up The Phone (I Know You're Home)" is not a real song, it should be.

What about Cry for Help? That was a pretty big hit. But by that time he looked like a hippie. Our dorky Rick was gone.


Who Does This Broad Think She Is?

My photo
I am a winsome muse who was sent to Earth to inspire an artist to turn a vacant building into the world's coolest disco roller rink. We fell in love along the way, and I foolishly gave up my immortality. When the disco craze ended and all the roller rinks were shut down, that lazy bum wouldn't get a job. We broke up and I was stuck on Earth with nothing to do and no one to inspire. So, now I write a blog.
