It's a message we can all get behind: Moms are hot. I think we're all in agreement that most moms are sexy since it's a near biological necessity: you get pregnant from sex. There must be at least a few men out there who like having sex with women ready to bear children, otherwise how are so many people pregnant? This video's message is so needlessly redundant that I'm starting to wonder if the creators of this music video have ever had sex before. They seem to be trying too hard to convince us they actually have.
Even though we're all on the same page about this video's message, it's awful. They managed to take something we all love, and squeeze the fun out of it. The only good thing about the video is that I get to describe it using a word I rarely get to use: "tartingles" (It's the feeling of embarrassment you experience for another person). Watching this video is like watching a middle schooler do stand-up for the first time at a talent show and bombing in front of his extremely fuckable parents.
But wait. There's more. I think the terrible feeling I get from watching this video is because they're not just singing about how they want to be dads. They're singing about getting into a sort of Jerry Maguire situation where they can be friendly to single moms who already have kids. Again, totally fine, but the more I watch the video, the more I think they're being sarcastic. They all sat in a room and said "wouldn't it be funny if we thought moms were hot?" And they all laughed and laughed and then went home and banged some girl ten years younger who had no interest in children. I hate it. I hate it so much.
Even the extras dancing at the end of the video look like they don't want to be in it. That's how bad it is.
I hope you've enjoyed this rant. Please forget you ever saw the video, and go tell a mom she looks great...but not in a creepy way. Actually, just leave everyone alone. Bye.
