Two Awesome Fan Videos

And the Montgomery Burns Award for Outstanding Achievement in the Field of Excellence goes to...

"Clint Eastwood" by Gorillaz - a Gaius video made by bop_radar
(There's also a stream link, but it only streamed about halfway for me)


"I Touch Myself" by The Divinyls - a Gaius/Six video made by nicole_anell
(It also links to Youtube, but the video has been removed from there - bastards!)

These are seriously good videos. They seem to share the same strengths:

-the lyrics fit Gaius (and Six)

-the scenes are timed to the rhythm of the song, so they actually look like music videos

-there's a lot of humor in both the choice of clips and their timing

-scenes from different episodes and seasons have been intertwined instead of simply making a chronological video

Most importantly, both videos show the creators' own reading of Gaius/Six. There's something original about the choice of clips and the way they've been arranged; the personalities of the creators come through.

More of these, please!
