Here We Go Again… It’s The Video You Deserve

September 7th, 2020

And here I go again on my own… Going down this lonely road to a vid you know… Cause it’s Monday you deserve some laughs alone… But you know what it means, when this column drops, and you say “this is so cheesy…” Yes. It is time. For the return of The Video You Deserve. Every Monday, we give you a cheesy music video to kick off your week with a laugh and a smile, and this week’s video is certainly one of the most iconic of all time.

It’s Monday, and it’s once again time for The Video You Deserve. Now, maybe aside from the usual case of the Mondays, you’re feeling like your life is a battlefield. Well, if that’s the case, then this video might just be extra special to you, and by “extra special,” I mean it’ll make you laugh so hard you might just forget your troubles for the moment.

Word Up! It’s Time For A Sweet Video You Deserve

August 17th, 2020

It’s Monday, so how about some candy with your Video You Deserve? Sometimes we’ve got to dig a little deeper than the biggest hits to come up with the funniest videos for an artist. That’s the case this week. If I were to mention the act Cameo, I’d bet probably, once you remembered them, about 80 percent or more of you would remember their biggest hit, “Word Up,” and no doubt that song and video are fantastic. That tune, which hit the top 10 all over the world, including the U.S. and UK, was an undeniable smash, and had an awesomely goofy video which featured the band being taken in... Read More

You’ll Be Cold Busted If You Don’t Check Out The Video You Deserve!

August 10th, 2020

Its Monday, and you know what that means. That’s right. It’s time for The Video You Deserve. Mondays can be pretty dismal and dingy. And really, so is the subject matter of this song and video, but it’s so damn cheesy and goofy that it transcends what should and could be a much sadder subject. The subject is infidelity, the cold harshness of that freezing rain of a no-good cheating partner falling on you, before you walk in, cut up all their credit cards, and take back that $3700 lynx coat you got them, which is preferable to jammy flat-blasting both of them. Or, at least, that’s what Oran... Read More

You’ll Foster Good Will Towards The Latest Video You Deserve

August 3rd, 2020

It’s Monday, and it’s time once again for The Video You Deserve. Now, the past several videos we’ve featured have all been vintage stuff from the ‘80s, which, arguably, is the golden age of videos. Back then it was the wild west, there were no real rules, and imagination and strangeness ruled. As time went on, videos began to become more cliched and certain elements came up so often that we needed Beavis and Butthead to parody them. And once the reality TV plague set in, and every good-looking moron became a recording star, and MTV pretty much stopped playing videos in lieu of reality TV,... Read More
