Those masks on Dare To Be Stupid video gimme the jeeblies...

Post by Fedora »

The masks on the "Dare To Be Stupid" music video are creepy. The short little guys squeezing Charmin and watching Leave it to Beaver.



Killer dolls or something, man. Jeeblies.

You think that one is scary, try hunting down a copy of the movie "Bad Taste" directed by Peter jackson (Lord of the Rings), those masks or make up or whatever for the aliens bother the crud out of me to this very day!!

Here is a pic of the aliens in their masks, its a little grainy but you can see what I mean.

(Just in case your unfamiliar with it, Bad Taste is Peter jackson's first movie, its about Aliens who come to earth and try to turn humans into a fast food franchise. A few humans find out and try to fight back!! Very funny Dark Comedy but definitely not for kids. Exploding heads and exploding sheep, but really badly budgeted so its not "gory" kind of like Al's "You Dont Love Me Anymore" video)

Sorta good point (just because I don't like him), but the faces do look similar....I think that was the point being made. It's really no different than the other allusions/similarities discussed before....unless I'm missing something.

Perhaps I am missing something. Carry on then...



(Wondering if you can make gravy out of jeeblies.)

I was thinking that this was similar to the Boojiboy mask worn by MarkM of Devo, but I think there was another instance of different masks that looked very similar used in a Devo video, maybe from either Jocko Homo or New Traditionalists.. or.. darnit, it's been too long since I've seen any of their videos.. I just remember thinking when I saw the masks in DTBS that they looked very similar to ones used by Devo.
