My heart is open like an open book and yours is closed

There's so much to love here, it's hard to know where to start: the "No Parking" sign above the parked motorcycle (indicating outlaw status of Ms. Terri's love interest), the date scene (happier times), the close-up on the United sign (ultimate freedom).

 Just need your love, indeed.

i like how you noticed the signs. we were doing the same thing. there's a LOT going on with this video. deep layers. almost like a kubrick film. i'm thinking this video will be released with a criterion collection soon.

I think that's Paula Deen singing about Al. It's that butter thing.

@dean, she was on a show alright..."American Idle".

The lovely chanteuse is apparently a member of that tiny, statistically insignificant percentage of people who thought "Little Miss Sunshine" was a fine documentary, nearly up to the standards set by "A Mighty Wind." And damn if the dude on the bike doesn't look like Rupert Pupkin. If I squint.

Rebecca Black and Carly Rae Jepsen ought to keep copies of this on their persons at all times in case anybody gives them any grief over their own CV.

If Andy Warhol had had any idea how technology was going to make his "fifteen minutes of fame" idea such a horrifyingly true reality, he surely would have included a 'sunset clause.' Or cut it back to something more reasonable, like maybe 30 seconds.
