Made me laugh all seven times I played it. PronunciationManual is a parody of pronunciationbook, apparently. Timothy Olyphant is wonderful too.
Musicwise, I’m liking The Young Professionals, from dancepop:
through trancey banginess:
all the way to this:
Plus cute Jewish boys. What’s not to like?
Just a final reminder, the latest jobs thread is here.
I seem to remember an announcer calling him “Brett Faver” repeatedly back in his college days, but now “Bo Foofer” will take over my favorite pronunciation.
Don’t fool me lady. I done saw what you did there.
Sven and Michel are doing a magic trick, when something unexpected happens.
My question to Balloon Juicers is, is this real or fake?
That first disco one seems a parody of some 80’s stuff, not really a disco flavor to me, though. I liked the arty-ness of the video, but not the song.
I’d say real.

I just wasted many minutes watching many other PronunciationManual videos. I highly recommend “darkness,” “chipotle,” and “Werner Herzog.” Thank you.

It’s a reworking/homage to a 70s/80s group from Ottawa named….Ottawan. They did a version of their hits in both French and English, the French ones sound slightly better.

T’es OK vs. You’re OK
Bo Foofer? I was pronouncing it *Beau* Foofer, but I like your version better.

If you listen to the middle pronunciation, it’s clearly Beauf Oofer.

Back when I used to be an Israeli music journalist, I interviewed Ivri Lider, back in the day, when he was a brand new and promising singer, the newest Big Thing — and then he went on to be a really, really Big Thing! (All in Israel of course. Here? He made it into one of Out Magazine’s lists, and I interviewed him again – for the Jewish press. Sigh).
He’s a very, very sweet guy and still one of my favorites.
Thank you for turning me on to TYP. The song is infectious, the video is fun and Uriel Yekutiel is worth going to Tel Aviv to see in person!

@Arclite: IMO, fake (the falling entertainment center was staged).
Don’t know about the removing tablecloth stunt.
