Hey gang! So, we’re not particularly denominational here at Y,WGAV!, but it’s still a place where any holiday is celebrated. Whatever you got, we’ll gladly take the day off to celebrate it. In this instance, we’ve got the Easter long weekend to look forward to – a spiritual time for some, but for most just another excuse to send ourselves into a confectionery-induced coma. To celebrate, here are five videos that will annihilate your sweet tooth. Chocolate, ice cream, lollies… it’s too good to be true!
5. New Young Pony Club – Ice Cream
Within the first 20 seconds, there’s a glorious spinning shot of sticky sweetness in a conglomerate of gooey candy – bullets, licorice, teeth, jellybeans etc. It’s a low-budget delight for the senses, really – and that’s not even mentioning knockout lead singer Tahita Bulmer. Simple pleasures are always the greatest.
4. Craig David – What’s Your Flava?
Here’s a blast from the past – suffering from Second Album Syndrome, Craig David tried to rustle up some interest in his new gear with this dorky homage to Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. As lame as it is, credit where credit’s due: he actually runs a fairly solid parody that runs with the plotline of the original story. Oh, and he travels down a chocolate river. There’s no earthly way of knoooowiiiing…
3. Rainbow Chan – Sweet Tooth
Here’s one a bit out of the ordinary , to say the least. One of my favourite Sydney artists, Rainbow Chan (yes, that IS her real name!), a few months ago took the initiative of having multi-coloured ice-cream melted and dripped onto her from above. It sounds a bit weird – and by god, it is. What can’t be denied, however, is just how watchable it is. There’s something strangely beautiful about a woman eating a snake lolly while being completely covered in rainbow ice-cream. And I never thought I’d say that.
2. Shanks & Bigfoot – Sweet Like Chocolate
Perhapsthe definition of a one-hit wonder. No-one had heard of Shanks & Bigfoot prior to the late nineties, and no-one has heard from them since. With their sole hit single, however, S&B inspired a whole generation of chocolate lovers. I loved this adorable fantasy chocolate world as a child, and it still brings out the child in me to this day.
1. Katy Perry feat. Snoop Dogg – California Gurls
Yeah, sorry Shanks – but not even your land of chocolate can compete withKaty Perry shooting cream out of her glorious tits.
Happy Easter, kids, hope you enjoy your holidays. We’ll be back on Monday, bellies full and eyes square from watching so many videos. Good times!
