Tastes like Chicken Payback

Chicken Payback [WMP streaming video; Real Player stream here.] At first, this music video from The Bees [Flash site] seems like a quick, harmless Friday diversion. Not for me, though. For me, it’s rapidly becoming a truly painful earworm, and worse: is there such a thing as an “eyeworm?”

The Bees have been one of my favorite newer bands. Free the Bees is their latest, their last cd Sunshine Hit me (as "A Band of Bees") is also really good.

Whatever you do, don't do a Google image search for "eyeworm". That is all.

Anyone have a link to better streams? Server seems overloaded.

woah, thats some mad DDR play. Although looking at the arrows, the game was either on easy or medium, if that guy played on expert mode, he wouldnt have time for all those silly hand gestures :-p

Eye worm? Not quite, but close.

(NSF some: blood, bot fly)

Good fun. Love the Japanese take on things. Gave it a 'strangeness' vibe. Cool.

Only one problem with the whole thing...

You see the arrows light up.

You see the points being awarded.

But...

Did anyone notice the score stuck at zero?

I wasn't entirely thrilled with the video/music (I kept waiting for something to happen with the music, but it never did...just kind of shuffled along like an 80 year old man on a walker), but I will give them props for a nifty flash interface on their site :)
