So I’ve been on an old music kick of late, and when digging through old CDs, I found an old copy of Beautiful Soul and thus began my week of listening to every single Jesse Mac song ever to be made.
Naturally, I migrated to YouTube where I stumbled upon this:
This song used to be my jam, but the video never fails to amuse me. It’s like a four minute road safety video without the car crash. I especially like the part at the 1:59 mark when Ludacris shows up….holding chains connected to two different moving cars….as he stands on another car. Quite what message we’re supposed to take from the video I don’t know. I would have loved to be a fly on the wall during the concept meeting. The car theme seems to come up in a lot his videos even though he still looks like he’s not tall enough to reach a steering wheel. 😛
The story so far: once upon a time, Jesse wanted you and your beautiful soouuuul His blond bowl-cut hair is kind of hilarious. And there was that time he lived because you lived. And then he just wanted you to know, that he’s right where you want him, because he can’t let you go. Oh, and there was the was the whole Disney thing (the lip syncing is quite funny in this one). And then he was leavin‘, but not before letting you know that he didn’t speak Japanese, Spanish or French but your body language definitely made sense.
We also can’t forget that time that you were his (and the rest of Dreamstreet’s) sugar rush! LOL at the kid with the red glasses…oh and something happened every time down on Dreamstreet. Apparently. The end of the video makes the song seem a lot less innocent than advertised…hahahaha.
Most recently, Jesse’s moved onto some girl who’s Superbad, presumably because beautiful souls aren’t very 2014. His fans don’t seem to like this new Jesse, because the old one actual had morals or something. It’s all very amusing.
Typical comment to be found on each video: OMG JESSE MCCARTNEY SHOULD BE WHERE BIEBER IS NOW. Be careful what you wish for JMac-ers (I think I cried internally at this term still being a thing. I thought we left it behind us in 2008!)
Ah, these videos make me feel old, lol.
