This one is better than McGovern’s previous few videos, but still not as good as the first two he did. At least he’s stopped his slide downhill.

Wtf? This is garbage!

I want to go to Comicon with Markaholic!

so, basically, he wants a guy that looks like a porn star with glasses with tape on it? The more things change the more they stay the same. ugh.

Made it through about a minute and a half….

Liberry? Snore of a video

I liked the music and was actually enthusiastic when I saw the title for his upcoming video, but Gary is right: these guys look like they were borrowed from a porn studio and given a bag of Halloween ‘nerd’ glasses.
I mean real nerds come in all shapes and sizes but not many of them spend time enough in a gym to look so chiseled. Give me nerd of the ‘Jim Parsons’ type anyday….

I thought it was cute, funny, and clever. (And interesting that all those self-righteous, demanding diva skanks on “Undateable” are so adamant that tighty-whities aren’t sexy–gay men sure seem to like them.) The only thing that didn’t ring true: the sexiest moment is when a guy finally takes OFF his glasses (preferably after everything else)–think Christopher Reeve in “Superman.” (Speaking of super, who was that hot redhead on the bass fiddle with the cool blue eyes?)

Of course his masterpiece is “Don’t Fall in Love With a Homo,” but this is even better than “Soccor Practice”

What’s with all the twinks? Those guys look as if they couldn’t write code to get themselves out of a paper bag. Wasted opportunity. What could have been a very funny video is just sad. I will not be re-posting.

Jonny McGovern is just an embarrassment. Stick a fork in the dude, because he is SO done! He is to Gay men what Stepin Fetchit was to African-Americans.

The only nerds I saw were the string players.

Couldn’t finish the video. ugh.
At least his meth message was good. Now if only he’d write a LOVE song, and stop doing all the vain sex songs all the time.
August 3, 2011 at 1:22 pm
Idiotic. Terrible music, lame lyrics, and the least nerdy boys I’ve ever seen. Get thee to DragonCon, poser.
August 3, 2011 at 2:24 pm
So I guess the message I should take away from this is, “Black guys are neither smart nor hot. Ever.”
(someone please tell me I’m just being dramatic and that there was at least one black nerd in the video, who I happened to miss…)
August 3, 2011 at 3:58 pm
Awesome video! Great looking guys. Made me so horny.
August 3, 2011 at 4:13 pm
You would think that after making music for YEARS he would move on to a different sound and know how to write a catchy lyric by now.
August 3, 2011 at 4:40 pm
I thought it was clever enough, but what he really needs is a hair stylist… Loved the Markaholic cameos.
August 3, 2011 at 6:46 pm
Those nerds are hot
August 3, 2011 at 6:47 pm
That was hysterically bad. I loved it.
August 3, 2011 at 7:24 pm
Its videos like these that just took Towlerroad off my bookmarks…. Stick to real artist.
August 3, 2011 at 10:21 pm
haha – right, none of these guys are actual nerds … I do love gay nerds though – time that sliver of the gay community gets recognized!
August 3, 2011 at 11:27 pm
I’m confused, does he want a hot nerd or a hot geek? The title says one thing, but half the lyrics say the other…

Hilarious!!! LOVE IT!! Thanks for posting Andy!

Henry on Ugly Betty is the sexiest nerd EVER!!!
August 4, 2011 at 4:05 pm
It’s my life! It’s my life! I’m in tears… Thank you, thank you…
But I can’t believe the adolescent seriousness of these comments. It isn’t art! It isn’t a love song! He is sooooo a stereotype!
I’m all for discrimination, but isn’t that a little like debating the social and artistic merit of two different episodes of Wheel of Fortune?

At least they used Dungeons and Dragons 3.5 Player’s Handbook rather than that 4E crap…
