- Bonnie Tyler Holding out for a hero
Well, some months ago, as I was looking through the AMV archives...I noticed that there weren't many videos using footage from Daft Punk's music videos (except rare folks like Brantelg's "It Is Well With My Soul" video :D ), so the idea came to me to make one using that...and I thought of a song that summarized the Crescendolls being kidnapped, then Shep flying into the rescue, and trying to be a hero.... That's where Bonnie Tyler's song "Holding Out For a Hero" came into mind. I found out not long after that there was an entire movie made out of these videos, so that was even better! I was glad too.... I mean, the way those four videos told it, the pilot guy goes off to rescue them, but then crashes and fails, and then the band gets brainwashed and the bad guy wins?! What the heck kind of a story is that?!
Anyways! I summarized all of what was going on with this video, and I've been told by a couple people that this was one of the best things they'd seen in awhile, one girl even claiming this was the second video ever to have made her cry. I...don't know if it's -that- great, but take a download, if you'd like, and check out the latest (...at this current time, at least...) movie from Matsumoto. Just a word, though, this video does not summarize the entire movie. Where this video ends is actually just some place about the middle.
I think that's about it. Another quick note is that anybody who is offended by seeing blue people in their underwear shouldn't watch this video (the scenes from the factory scene/"Harder Better Faster Stronger" video.... There's nothing risque about those scenes--it's just blue alien people in their underwear being "turned 'human'"). Also there's slight violence and yellow blood at one point...but honestly it's not bad! Certainly nothing rated R. I'm just covering all the bases with letting you folks know about this content. ^_^
Another quick reference I'd like to make is how long the video is.... It's not much, but just quickly check that out once you've downloaded it. =) Also, the artwork at the end was made by my internet friend Rissa(-chan), a girl I met on a forum who was enthusiastic about getting her artwork onto the internet.
Anyways, that's it for my ramblings about this video. Enjoy! =)
