==== When I made this I experimented with large, way overblown credits. They are an AMV all their own.
OK - so it didn't go over very well. So I recommend watching the version on Youtube on my IO9WWWW account.
This is an improved version anyway

I wanted to do a video with a singer on screen for the entire run of the vid, singing and moving around. I had done several comedies and thought to try a romance again, so I thought about Mahoromatic. A lot of that anime was a romance, especially towards then end.
I started looking through it for good scenes, and kept finding these wonderful mad reaction shots of Mahoro, so I thought maybe to make them arguing or something.
Then, one night I stumbled across a rerun of "Married with Children" and that idea solidified, and I realized it would be a comedy.
So now I needed a song with man & woman arguing...... Sean Morey's "Lovers Duet" jumped right up, screaming and waving it's arms.
The background TV screen went reasonably well, but the foreground singers - they were a true bear! SO MUCH masking, a ton of photoshop work, color balancing to keep their hair, clothing, skin tones and whatnot all looking consistent enough.
Everyone I have shown it to laughs - and even at the correct places!
