    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.

    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.

    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?)

    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.

    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.

    So I guess the message I should take away from this is, “Black guys are neither smart nor hot. Ever.”

    Got it.

    (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…)

    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.

    I thought it was clever enough, but what he really needs is a hair stylist… Loved the Markaholic cameos.

  11. JD says

    Its videos like these that just took Towlerroad off my bookmarks…. Stick to real artist.

  12. reality says

    haha – right, none of these guys are actual nerds … I do love gay nerds though – time that sliver of the gay community gets recognized!

  13. Andrew says

    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…

  14. Bryan says

    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?
