I immediately regretted this decision after having watched this one video. I was wondering how could a group possibly come up with such an abomination as this so-called 'song'? How could they make such a video that is so, well, crap, to put it bluntly. Just what has society come to if this horse-shit is allowed onto our screens, if it is allowed to get into people's minds, if it fills so many people with, quite understandable, unquenchable hatred and detestation? I shall explain why it was, to my eyes, such crap.
First off, there is the terrible, high-pitched singing, that much is enough to make any mature man's ears bleed. But the video itself is just too much. It really is cringeworthy. I can't understand why in the name of all that is holy, and unholy for that matter, they got the idea of posing themselves as actors in such an effeminate way. They seemed to have decided to take the image of what many people would see to be fairly cool, but my god, they've somehow managed that in such a way that they appear to me as little better than young children trying far too hard.
A speedboat? Ok, not too bad, but what's the context? Just some gay-looking 21-year old driving a speedboat, just to show off in his video? One word this tells me: W**KER. Anyone who does that just to show off is universally accepted as a total tosspot,I'm sure most of us can agree on this.
Then there's the guy 'playing' the role of a copper. He manages to 'chase down' an apparent criminal. They could have settled for just crap at that, but they sank even lower: the 'criminal' was portrayed by Danny Trejo. For any who don't know, Trejo is one hell of an actor. In one of his most recent films, Predators (2010), he took the role of a Mexican Drug Cartel Enforcer. He is eventually hunted down and torn apart, but in a cool, gory, glorious way. In this video, all this goes straight down the drain. Being seen getting 'caught' by a member of one of the most vile, effeminate bands ever to have existed sets the bar pretty damn low. The fact it was acting takes it even lower; why would such a good actor agree to 'act' in a video for such a purpose as showing off in a childish manner, rather than what acting is really for: PROPER ENTERTAINMENT.
Then, there is the other guy. He is seen making an attempt at some sort of martial art that doesn't seem to make much sense to me. for example, how could a man which such wimpy arms throw a ninja eight metres backwards? For much of his 'act', i'm convinced there is a stunt double, wires, animation, or some other form of cheating going on.
And, oh dear, they put their NAMES into the video. WHY?? Real artists would never do this. This is acceptable only for proper films, or for when credits are actually appropriate. They do this simply because they use crap, outdated titles for each of their flicks, so they feel that putting not only their names in, but also 'starring' and 'as so-and-so'. They actually make up names for themselves. I just fail to see how they managed to figure out how this might possibly look 'cool'.
Again, I feel the context of this song and the accompanying video is simply non-existent. One moment there's a kid in a speedboat for no reason other than to make himself look cool, the next another kid is swinging a chain in front of a fairly well-known actor, who for some reason, presumably a shitload of money, agreed to feature in it, the next moment another kid is beating up ninjas by tapping them and jumping above them. You've seen picture unrelated? Well, this is video unrelated. Finally, the song itself. After having described what occurs in the accompanying video, you'd have thought the song could have had some relevence to the video, or vice versa. Nope. They did that wrong too. The song bears no relevance to the video at all, it's simply about three immature 21-23 year-olds trying to get off. Or at least that's what it sounds like. I couldn't hear much, because the reedy effeminate voices are completely overdone by the overdone, effeminate video. I could only catch bits and pieces of it. Not that i would really want to, but still. The 'topic' of the song, or rather, apparent lack thereof, is pretty damn typical with teenie artists like such. Think back to Justin Bieber. What were his songs about? Yup. Trying to get off with women who rightfully wouldn't acknowledge him, were they not gifted with tons of cash. Apparently. The Jonas Brothers are actually a step down from Bieber. The songs are just as crap, but at least Bieber's songs had context, and were vaguely relevent to the video. This is the only place Bieber can hold a little respect in. The Jonas Brothers, as explained, got that bit wrong too.
I haven't mentioned a lot here, but so much doesn't need mentioning, it goes without saying. So much of it, once it has been seen, cannot be unseen. It is so strikingly obvious what image they try to portray, yet the image they really show to the viewer: that of untalented poofters.
It seems the only audience that could possibly enjoy their music is young children and immature teenagers whose minds haven't been opened to the real world of music.
For any of you wishing to view the video, to see for yourselves just how low they set the bar, and to properly explain why i dislike them so much, here's the link to their video i just described: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ScXLHgPcZuc
Two words, Jonas Brothers: The Beatles.
Sincerely, the vast majority of mature people.
