That was painful to watch and listen to, but if she truly wanted to annoy, she should try the 1-877-kars-4-kids song....

That truly was horrifying. I turned off the sound and scrolled through, and found her pretending to play guitar near the end. I was so irritated that I spent way too much time verifying that it was not an authentic vintage 1960 Gibson Les Paul Special. No, that model does not have a double bridge. And that is fortunate, because if it was real, I would have to hunt her down and confiscate it.

I am overwhelmed with vicarious embarrassment. On the other hand, kudos for having what may be the only tidy bedroom on youtube.

1. I wonder how much they paid her for this effective viral advertisement/will sue her for copyright infringement.

2. That "goth" music is utterly unlike any goth music I have ever heard, and I was a kinda-sorta goth once. It's more like an intro to a Lady Gaga song.

3. Why on earth does Stanley Steamer advertise, anyway? Steam cleaning is kind of a once-in-a-lifetime thing, and the normal way to go about it is to just rent whatever those ones are at the front of the grocery store, no? Of course, I live in a sensible place where people take their shoes off in the house, so I might have a warped perspective on the whole thing.

That was delightful. Was hoping for a Kate Bush take, though.

Yes, that was a Lady Gaga parody. Subby misphrased it.

I steamclean my cream carpets (NOT MY CHOICE! DAMN YOU LANDLORDS!) about 4-5 times a year. In "normal" apartments, I do it before I move out at least, so once every few years.

A non-pet owner, I see.

Nope, Potomac Avenue, a pet owner.

My dog brings his (raw diet) bones into the living room after they're "clean". And again: cream carpets.
