Vid Kids 2014 #6: Indiana “Solo Dancing"

When we learned about Beavis & Butthead's resurgence back in 2010, our minds immediately started wondering and wandering around the idea of untapped music video commentary. And we know we weren't alone, although many of those in our company were probably thinking "hell yeah, boy band X and pop singer Y will finally get what they deserve." We simply anticipated ANY commentary, with dozens of videos produced between 1997 and 2011 coming to mind. For whatever reason, we had hopes reaching as high as Tyler The Creator's "Yonkers," No Age's "Eraser," or possibly even jumping all the way back to the untapped late-'90s with Chumbawamba's "Tubthumping." Our hopes - like the hopes of many others - were ultimately crushed after learning that Mike Judge was not using this as an opportunity to scratch that particular itch. B&B did watch a few videos here and there, but there were at least 2 instances where 30 minutes passed with no video commentary at all.

On occasion, a pop video like "Solo Dancing" will surface that seems almost too perfect for B&B's couch jokes. In this instance, the entire 3:33 is devoted to literal interpretations of euphemisms. Huh-huh-huh. Check it out. She's twirling her dreidel. Huh-huh. Hey, check it out. She's petting her kitty. And so on, and so forth...
