Well, here it is. I warned forum-goers (especially truerachel) that I was doing a DBZ vid, but I also promised that it wasn't an action/rapcore vid. I kept that promise.
The idea for this video came about because I'm an avid watcher of Comedy Central/Cartoon Network/Sci-Fi. Unfortunately, all three of these channels seem to have the same lame commercials. One in particular advertises a CD compilation of singer/songwriters called Once Upon a Song. In the smack middle of this ad, Janis Ian comes on and sings "I learned the truth at seventeen"...this little bitty clip got STUCK IN MY HEAD AND I COULDN'T GET IT OUT!!! So I decided to use my brain's little quirk to my advantage and send out a DBZ vid you'd never have looked for.
I imagine this vid telling the story of 17's first incarnation, and him (her, in the vid...little girly man...) reflecting on how much it really sucked. I mean, REALLY sucked. The pain of finding others stronger than you...why does 18 get all the guys...stuff like that.
So, give it a dl and see how much I've progressed in two short months!
