    Well, not really.

    I downloaded the "Total Eclipse of the Heart" music video (bonnie tyler). And while watching it me and another person noticed that there is one 3 second clip of a person that looks very similar to me. I probably wasn't born at the time this music video was created. I showed the pic to my friend and sister and both of them thought it was me. (If anyone has seen this music video or downloads it, let me know your interpretation of it because it makes NO sense what so ever).

    Me: (just image my hair shorter, and my head tilted down more)

    I don't know, maybe cause you guys have never seen me in person you can't really tell with the picture above as a reference.

    Whats the deal with the upstanding collar? Reminds me of Europe in the 80ies. Can any European MR member conform if we are back to upstanding collars again, I think I missed the cue :p Enjoy your 15 minutes of fame

    I was in a music video, too. A local band called The Flipside shot a video at a show I attended (w/ Hellogoodbye!). It was really low budget, and you can't see my face, but I know it's me because (1) My friendis standing in front of me, and (2) I was doing a certain hand motion when they filmed it...

    Here's a screeny

    Madonna rang me once, asked if I wanted to be a in vid. I said ok so long as she crimped her hair just for me. So she did. We sang a lullaby and recorded a video. It's currently on that rocket now heading the CD press factory on Pluto.

    and yes to up collars! I can't wear them down. just can't!

    Now me, I wouldn't be bragging about that Total Eclipse of the Heart video too much... It's possibly the dorkiest music video to come out of the 80's. THe song is about 2 minutes too long (let's go for ANOTHER repeat - this time with more strings and some tympani too!), Pretentious as all get out (esp. the part at the end where the kid's eyes are glowing... :p ) and it's borderline creepy

    "And I need you now tonight
    And I need you more than ever
    And if you'll only hold me tight
    We'll be holding on forever
    And we'll only be making it right
    Cause we'll never be wrong together
    We can take it to the end of the line
    Your love is like a shadow on me all of the time
    I don't know what to do and I'm always in the dark
    We're living in a powder keg and giving off sparks
    I really need you tonight
    Forever's gonna start tonight"

    And Bonnie Tyler is singing this to someone apparently in their mid-teens.

    Eeeeww.

    I know, it is disgusting. The music video makes no sense. Notice how all the boys have say "turn around bright eyes" and they are the ones with the bright eyes. I have concluded that all the boys are gay, and they just have really bad eye contact.

    The full version is 7:00 min long.

    Yea, I bet when you older people were young you wore your pants up high, and did those other horrendous 80's things.

    Popped collars are for trust-fund yacht babies.

    But yeah, he does look like you.

    The popped collar goes back way before the 1980's.

    James Monroe had it in 1817.
