Edgewriter Hisself here.
You are invited to a friends house. They are all excited and want you to watch a video they made. So you act enthusiastic and they put this on:
You watch in horror, trying not to laugh and feeling embarassed for them. Then they tell you about their aspirations of stardom and you try to be positive while the whole time you are screaming inside, wishing you could escape.
An hour later after you have found an excuse to slip away, you leave the driveway just as more of their puzzled looking victims are arriving at the house.
Well Jan Terri and Mark Gormley have produced some of the most embarrassed friends and acquaintances ever. They evidently have quite a cult following despite the horribleness of the videos.
Let’s start with our buddy Mark Gormley. He is actually on very talented SOB. Musically his songs are quite good. Unfortunately the dude looks like my old junior high english teacher Mr. Ferguson. He should not appear in his own music videos.
(BTW notice the bandaid on his chest in that one?)
Now to Mark’s credit, he is pretty grounded for a internet sensation. in this interview, you can see that he isn’t looking to jump into fame. He even turned down Jimmy Kimmel. He is however looking for a new “signifigant other”. So ladies . . .
Jan Terri on the other hand . . . Why oh why in the name of all that is holy did this woman decide to make music?
Please kill me now. You will want to after watching this:
(1:35 dan dan dong??? Even she gets bored of the video after a while)
Here is one Pop up video style:
And so mch more . . . .
Special thanks to the folks over at the Rifftrax Blog for bringing the joy of Jan Terri and Mark Gormley into my hum-drum life.
