Even though this a spoof music video, I think its a great lesson in effective songwriting. What makes it so funny is the fact that its so well laid out and structured... if it wasn't for the ridiculous lyrics you would think its just like any other song on the radio. Actually, I think the lyrics are more intelligent and better thought out than 99% of the lyrics on most pop songs.

By the way, if you're easily offended, you might not want to watch it tongue.gif

Cool smile.gif Not only that you can learn something about music production, this video has some cliche video production guidelines that are worth implementing. smile.gif

Nice smile.gif The guy slinging his dreads in slow motion is a nice touch as well. You almost can't have a guitar solo in a vid without that smile.gif
