Wrecking Ball... interpreted by Ron Jeremy. SFW, I think.

I get a "this video is unavailable" message.

I get a "This video does not exist" message, which in retrospect is probably for the best.

Oh lordy. I don't know how to describe my reaction to this. I kind of want to laugh .. and yet ... I'm kind of touched. ONLY A LITTLE!

Somehow I initially read that as Ron Burgundy: Wrecking Ball. The reality is ?better.

The films of John Waters come to mind after seeing this.

bunderful, if you've been touched by this video then I recommend some penicillin. Stat!

bunderful, could you show us on the doll where the video touched you?

I have no idea why, but when I saw the name Ron Jeremy, I thought I'd be seeing this Ron, and got mightily confused when the video started.

Please tell me Ron Jeremy isn't actually still doing porn any more.

The video was produced here in Portland, where he runs a swingers club (I hear they have an excellent seafood buffet). I think mostly he does comedic cameo roles and product promotion at this point.

Dammit, FFFish.

Sorry about that.

BTW, WTF is with his bellybutton?

OMG, right?

THAT is an outie with a vengeance.

This just illustrates for me that what Cyrus does verges on more silly than sexy. Sometimes things can be so far over the top they're just redonkulus.

I'm kind of touched.
No touching. Please. NO touching.
And we need alcohol wipes STAT for that wrecking ball.

I found this utterly delightful, and I think my world is a better place for having seen it. My partner, on the other hand, says, "I may never recover from this."

OMG, right?

On the upside, his open heart surgery scar has healed up great.

I struggled around how to say this for a bit and then gave up. Nice work.

Well now that I've got a working link, a duet immediately suggests itself.

I think I get it, bunderful.

Like, if you ignore the fact that he's obviously clowning, and maybe the fact that he's Ron Jeremy, it has a certain pathos.

Sorry, that Ron link was supposed to go to Ronnie Corbett's Wiki page.

I unashamedly and unabashedly watched all of it, and wanted more.

Thank you justkevin.

Welp that's it, I've seen everything I need to see on the internet today, I'm outta here.

(who ever would have thought of Ron Jeremy as SFW. More or less.)

IMO this is the best rerub of Wrecking Ball. No one fucks with the flute drop.

I thought it was wonderful. More pathos than Miley's version.

That is some amazing flute drop, laconic skeuomorph.

you may or may not have meant to spell it rerub, but it is a rerub.

Dip Flash:

yup

admittedly there is more than seafood, but that is what was mentioned as being good
posted by idiopath at 7:18 PM on January 19, 2014


Jeremy had achieved something akin to Grand Dame status in porn. I don't have a word or phrase more accurate than that to describe his status.
posted by Joey Michaels at 7:19 PM on January 19, 2014 [3 favorites]


yup

Lots of finger food there.

And it's not his Dame that's Grande.

Ron Jeremy: "I came in, like, a wrecking ball."

Yeah - I kinda wonder if it's a hernia of some sort, if you look at his old work, it's a regular ol' innie (no offense to any outies out there)... Even a pic I saw that's of a larger Ron seems to have an innie. I'm half wondering if it isn't related to the surgery, but then I did find a pic of him engaged in sexual action that showed it, and I don't know if he's been starring actively in any films since his surgery, so I think that throws that theory out.

I also think that I have already put way too much thought into this issue.

No one fucks with the flute drop.

Actually, I'm pretty sure that's one of those brown plastic recorders, the ones you learned to toot "Mary Had a Little Lamb" on in first grade. Which makes it even better.

A fipple-flute is still a kind of flute.

Ernielundquist, I have only a vague idea of who Rob Jeremy is. That probably has something to do with my reaction.
posted by bunderful at 5:08 AM on January 21, 2014 [1 favorite]


Aha! That probably is it, then. I know what he's famous for, but only from reading about it in scholarly journals or something.

Maybe we're more inclined to see him as just some sad old man singing a song about loss and regret because we're not used to seeing him that other way.
posted by ernielundquist at 7:36 AM on January 21, 2014 [1 favorite]


Exactly - looking at it I think how the song is sexy and tragic when sung by a hot young star ... But if we're older and uglier and fatter we still have those feelings. It just becomes pathetic to sing about them in our underwear.

And yet it also underscores the silliness of Miley. I realize I'm contradicting myself a bit but ... There you go.

OTOH, when was the last time you saw a potato with such beautiful eyes?
