Happy 4th of July, Amer-u-kuh!
There are so many things to love about this video, an oldie but goodie. The hair, the make-up, the fashion, the sexy angel, the fact that the credits for the video start halfway through. Also, the fact that who the hell is this guy, this Dennis Madalone? He says he's with us in a different way, but what was the first way? And who are these Loved-Ones? Are they mad white figures that are shooting out of Madalone's hair at one point? Are they magic? Is that why the ocean is now American flag-colored? Ok, I can accept that.
This video represents everything that is best about Amer-u-kuh. Firefighters that walk in the clouds. Cliffs. Water. Sand. Mullets. And creepy babies with perfectly round heads. But I think youtube commenter auriga1488 typed it best when s/he said, "This is just art perfection in every sense. Rhymes, wording, sense, harmony, rhythm, performance, pronunciation, haircut, video editting, photography, and many, many others!"
Enjoy this video today and forever and don't forget to hug a Loved-One. Also, see below for a video that is with you in a different way.
