Watch! Elsie – London Town
I’ve never heard of pop singer Elsie before I did a post on her previous video, How to Handle A Sex Pest. This video was sort of cool, as it was a choose your own adventure video on YouTube (much like what The Cribs just did for Glitters Like Gold).
Well, I guess Elsie is sensitive to comments (you’re in the wrong profession, honey) and her latest video pokes fun at some of the sexiest people on the planet – bloggers. This video is also a choose your own adventure style video, so despite the fact I think her music is average, I will spend some time with her videos. The first 5 seconds shows that Elsie hasn’t improved her dancing skills since her last video. Give me a ring, and I’ll show you how to dance (perhaps even more poorly). One of the choices has you launching a blog (which is a terrible decision that no one should undertake – unless you like anonymously making fun of other people to make yourself feel better).
Unlike the Cribs video, which plays seamlessly and opens each interactive YouTube click in a new window, the Elsie video constantly has the song interrupted. This is good if your attention span is only 45 seconds, which perhaps isn’t a stretch. Also, the path I chose didn’t complete the song. If you think I’m going to listen to this song for 10 minutes to complete the video, you’re kidding yourself. Anyway, if you like average songs but innovative videos, check out the latest Elsie offering below.
