Chris Dane Owens' epic medieval bluescreen journey to poprock superstardom. Video directed by academy award winning Robert Short.

Alright, the plot may have some holes, but the shimmering green guitar, slap bass, golden locks and lack of pretensions more than make up for it.

Please tell me it's parody. Because it's the most perfect cheese I've ever seen, and it's hard to believe that's unintentional.

You know what really sells this? The moustache.

Also, it's like Draco Malfoy grew up and decided to be a Muggle popstar.

A man who is willing to do this to himself is unstoppable.

Oh, and I think that may have ruined Gretch duo jets and sparkle jets for me forever. So thanks for nothing.

three points:

1) That was awesome.

2) I love how youtube's new "widescreen" format does nothing except make letterboxed videos doubly letterboxed now

3) I enjoyed skimming through this crazy mashup of random violent images, upbeat jaz music narrated by an earnest conspiracy theorist demanding the arrest of the "300 ruling families" that was recommended in the sidebar.

He looks a little elvish.

"lack of pretensions"?

Owens may be related to another showbiz Owens but the references elude me. Hope me, lazyweb!

He'd make a great Dread Pirate Roberts.

It appears to be a music video for a song from the soundtrack of the next Highlander movie.

I wish this hadn't been posted yet so I could make an FPP with a link to this interview. Simply amazing.
