- Genesis Jesus He Knows Me
This AMV took part at the Connichi AMV Contest 2005.
It was the SECOND BEST AMV in the CATEGORY FUN.
It took me 6 weeks to create this AMV. I have used diverse edit tools and believe me, you won't be able to find 90% of this AMV anywhere in the anime. It was especially hard to create a singing photo (while zooming in) and a singing magazine. However, it was worth every sleepless night, I am happy with the result.
The music comes directly from the video version of "Jesus He Knows Me". Phil Collins talks so nicely. When I watched the DVD last Christmas I thought... that fits to Anderson (Hellsing), so I had to create it. The AMV is as close as possible a homage to the original Genesis video.
It was put into the Fun Category of the Connichi2005, however, it's more kind of a Parody. It's more cynical than funny, just like the song is.
Enjoy this AMV. Watch it more than once, I am sure you'll discover more and more small details as you go along ^-^.
Here is the text (if you have problems to understand what Collins says/sings):
It was on a divine visitation that the Lord told me that I was to go on to television
I was laying on the bed and the bed began to go around
And I had this sensation like I was on a miracle round
And then the furniture joined in and then I was in the stars
There were stars everywhere
Above me, below me, to the left of me, to the right of me Ė millions and millions of stars
And the Lord said: The stars are the souls that youíll win for me
The Lord actually talks to me, you know, I hear whatís beg he said
And he said to me: Give me 18 million dollars by the weekend
And the Angel of the Lord stands by my side and speaks into my ear
Itís a beautiful thing and I hear whatís being said
Itís a marvellous, marvellous experience, I never thought that such a thing could happen
In the name of Jesus!
And the Lord spoke to me
He said: stretch forth your hand
Tell the people to put their hands against yours and I will heal them
Get me 18 million dollars by the weekend
Touch the screen! Touch the screen!
You see the face on the TV screen, coming at you every Sunday
See that face on the billboard, that man is me
On the cover of the magazine, there's no question why I'm smiling
You buy a piece of paradise, you buy a piece of me
I'll get you everything you wanted, Iíll get you everything you need
Don't need to believe in hereafter, just believe in me
Cos Jesus he knows me, and he knows Iím right
I've been talking to Jesus all my life
Oh yes he knows me, and he knows Iím right
And he's been telling me everything is alright
I believe in the family, with my ever loving wife beside me
But she don't know about my girlfriend, or the man I met last night
Do you believe in God, cos that is it what I'm selling
And if you wanna get to heaven, all I see you right
You won't even have to leave your house, or get outta your chair
You don't even have to touch that dial, cos I'm everywhere
God save the way he just uses me as his instrument
He speaks his power through my voice
In the sign of the cross, Jesus told me that
Won't find me practising what I'm preaching, won't find me making no sacrifice
But I can get you a pocketful of miracles, if you promise to be good, try to be nice
God will take good care of you, just do as I say, don't do as I do
I'm counting my blessings, I've found true happiness
Cos I'm getting richer, day by day
You can find me in the phone book, just call my toll free number
You can do it anyway you want, just do it right away
There'll be no doubt in your mind, you'll believe everything I'm saying
If you wanna get closer to him, get on your knees and start paying
One day I was standing before the cameras right here in the cathedral
When the Lord spoke to me
He said: Stretch forth your hand and tell the people to put their hands against yours and I will heal them
He said this is a form of laying-on-hands
So put your hands on the screens now
Touch the screen! Touch the screen! Heal! Heal! Heal!
In the name of Jesus! Heal! Touch the screen!
