As is my habit, and my Bobby Brown prerogative, I tend to take pop music and POKE GIANT HOLES IN IT. Because it’s entertaining.
Or I find something bizarre, maybe a music video that we all thought was so flipping cool back in 1995 or 1985, but when you look back at it now, the thing is just wacky.
HOWEVER: this video is different.
It’s a sad song with a real story. There’s nothing cheesy or silly about it. I salute the singer, the actors and the whole shebang. More, please.
Bonus: the Bobby Brown song that I named dropped. My favorite part is the dancer “playing” one of those guitar-keyboard things, which is trying desperately to be cool. Give it up. Pianos and such are cool just how they are.
