Apropros of nothing, there’s a thoroughly disturbing video airing on the EMAP music channels just now. It’s a German band called the Boogie Pimps and their crass Euro remake of “Somebody to Love”. However, it’s the video that you really have to wonder about. It features seven very small babies skydiving from a plane in formation (aka the red devils), landing on a lip-syncing model who’s wearing lingerie, while the camera lusts over her breasts. Then she gets a baby bottle out and starts drinking milk from the teat, before the miniture babies all land on her breast. I really don’t think that this description does the video justice. Just what the hell is going on?
There are always one or two of these very strange videos for songs that as far as I know get no air-play from any major radio stations in the country whatsoever (prove me wrong when they get to number one). Still, we’re in the dog days of January when just about anyone can get to number one.
