Easily one of the most ridiculous video's EVER! Beyond bad. And he sounds like a boyband reject on top. Hardly a carreer booster...

That reminds me to revisit 'Pink Narcissus'. Merry Christmas, y'all!

Poor Ari is human, forgiveness denied.

yikes... I couldn't even get through the 1st minute... it's right up there with Liza Minnelli's "Don't Drop Bombs"

I made it all the way to 1:54...
One can only shiver from such an unfortunate display of neo-2003 pastiche gong-worthy insipid self-sucking tack.
Andy, do that affected schmaltz a favor and delete this post, it's actually cruel to keep this post up.
well, i thought i'd have another go at it... but this time i only made it to 0:41. at that point it caused my irritable bowel syndrome to start acting up. oh gawd! make it stop!

really, Faghettini Basta? you and your precious, self-cherishing sistern can go to hell. what is it with the cannibalism of self-absorbed, self-hating faggots who seem to get some sort of carnal knowledge by eating their young? gawd, i despise you and others like you.

It's much better than his Burger King rap or whatever that was a couple months back.
Way better! If he improves this much by his next song... he is going to be A list! Nice package, too!

It's PM Dawn meets Bjork... not a bad thing to aspire to in my book.
Posted by: bendskier | Dec 24, 2008 3:32:49 PM
this is beyond mediocre.
the production is very 1999/2000, and the new lyrics are cringe-worthy.
is he getting coverage here simply because he's gay? i mean...this is CLEARLY something chartrigger, your guest music editor, would destroy.

the vituperation is astounding, given that there are much more vile videos out there. you bitches are just vile.

Such a good looking man, such a crappy, predictable and vanilla cover.

Wow, how sad! well, at least his hair plugs are finally growing in, if that's a good thing.

Okay, two things. First, this is at best a mediocre cover. The Human League collaborating with Jam & Lewis = Musical Gold [and not Ari Gold]. Second, this video is visually stunning. It's very obviously an homage to the photographic and film work of James Bidgood (director of the classic underground gay film "Pink Narcissus"). Bidgood was the most creative of the physique photographers in his day; and did most of his set-ups in his apartment. His work provided much inspiration to Pierre et Gilles. Kids (meaning anyone 40), do your homework on gay culture before 1995. There's a rich artistic heritage for you to discover. [Maybe it's that this doesn't look like Brit's "Circus" video or Xtina's Target commercial...]

He's trying. Bless his heart. I'm happy for that. I think he has talent but isnt produced well or managed well or doesnt have the best material or something. I do remember though, he has a nice piece.
