- Title: The Most Pretentious Dragonball Z Video Ever
- Premiered: 2003-10-29
- Pixies Something Against You
Ok, first of all, I am not nor have I ever been a Dragonball Z fan. I don't think I've ever even sat through an entire episode of the show. I am also not a person who despises the show with all his heart. I just find the show silly.
I made this video purely with the intention of making fun of dbz.
There's nothing special about the conception of this video. I'd been wanting to make a video to a Pixies song for a while since only two of their songs have been used in videos so far (Velouria and of course, Where is My Mind?). At some point it hit me that the song, Something Against You would work perfectly for dbz, in an exaggerated, parody sort of way. And that was the kind of video I made. I decided that whatever originality scores I get for using dbz would be worth it for the chance to edit to the Pixies.
So there you have it. The video is far from the most outstanding thing on the block and if you plan to download only one of my videos don't make it this one. I've done more ambitious projects. This was just a fun, silly little video in which I use mindless action to parody mindless action.
Nonetheless, if you can get past the fact that it's dbz, and want a reason to download it, I might mention that I think it turned out to be pretty well timed and it also has what is truly the best lip synching I've ever done.
Last thing I should mention. The lyrics are almost impossible to understand unless you already know what they are. So I decided to take mercy and subtitle the lyrics whenever they're sung (yelled actually). I hope no one minds.
