Daddy Cool

Posted by shanoah on July 1, 2009

Well, given that I posted Mr. Funk, I suppose I should do Daddy Cool, the epitome of cheesy disco music.

This is an absolutely classic video, down to the fake orgasms the one girl does while the guy with his shirt off slides a long hard microphone between his legs.

I actually do somewhat enjoy this video, especially watching the three ladies in this video’s over the top dancing. Thing you may want to note here is that the guy and three girls shown here are not singing. They are lipsyncing, much like Milli Vanilli.

Just like that, in fact, as it’s the same German guy behind both of them, Frank Farian. He used Boney M as one of his psuedonyms.

Now, you might have been thinking “I bet it would be easy to make a really horrible cover of that song, and throw in some chicks with punk hairstyles.”

No?

Well, the group Peaches was. I wish they hadn’t.

This is a train wreck. It’s so bad I really had to play it. That sad, lonely guy in the circle reminds me of scenes from Myst for some reason. Probably the overacting.

Funny thing is it really makes me appreciate the original…
