First, lets get one thing out of the way… this is a boring video. That comes from two very VERY important factors.
1. It is a character profile of Kotori from the “X” movie, which basically means ***SPOILER ALERT kinda*** she looks worried, dies, or does some combination of the two in every shot. **END spoiler alert** Not much variety in the diet there.
2. I did not spice it up with many effects. In fact, I only used a couple fades. Why, you may ask? Well, some might say that it’s because I’m lazy, but that’s not true. To date this vid has probably occupied about 30 hours of my time, whish is insane considering it’s only 1:40 long. Making those flower petals at the beginning dance was the worst! ~scream~
So then, why should you download this video? Well, if you know the movie at all, then its good for a laugh. It’s not very re-viewable, but before you get sick of it you may just smirk to yourself a few times.
I noticed in flipping through the vids here that there are two things people tended to avoid when they made X vids: poking fun at the takes-itself-ultra-seriously plot and execution, and Kotori. :-)
In her defense, she’s actually a very good actress. You see ***SPOILER ALERT kinda*** she knows she’s going to die. You can see it in her eyes. She’s like a cornered mouse *pat pat* but that doesn’t mean she’s giving up, oh no. She is going to die as tragically and melodramatically as possible! **END spoiler alert**
I meant to end with Kotori, but it seemed so incomplete that I extended the clip to include the next part of the song and used everyone’s favorite movie ending scene, in greatly increased speed, because when you think about it, those two are acting very silly.
THEME: The theme is the conspiracy between Kamui and Fuma to kill the hapless Kotori, who is actually evil-er than they are HAHAHAHAHA ~ahem~ sorry. At the end Fuuma pays for his plotting *pats* and all is snide with the world.
LYRICS: As above, so below
Place your bet which way the head will roll
Made in your image we,
are at least as twisted and mean as thee
For your eyes, what a curious sight
Your children have turned on you
And you say you don\\\'t sleep well at night,
well, we\\\'ll take care of that for you
All my troubles, all my pain
stems from this thing that you call a brain
Be my guest, sever me
from the source of all my agony
What a shame, I\\\'ve forgotten my name
without the use of my brain
And I bet I\\\'ll sleep well tonight
without this head of mine
Get that damn thing off my neck
I’m the head of the board
now I\\\'m bored of my head
Sharpen up the blade boys
What are you waiting for
Here\\\'s where we all get ahead
Wipe that damn smile off your face
or we\\\'ll lop it off clean with our new guillotine
Sharpen up the blade boys
Bells are now tolling
soon head will be rolling
Please sir, for me sir, won\\\'t you see if you see sir?
Dear, I dread I seem to have lost my head
Should be up by Aug. 14
