Ronan Keating broke my brain

with 2 comments

Apologies for being quiet over the last week but slipping on tiles and landing on my shoulder meant I’ve been away from the keyboard.

Today I spotted, to my everlasting horror, Ronan Keating’s new song and in a moment of what I can only describe as pain-killer  induced madness I watched it.

The song itself is typical Keating trash. Some saccharine whine about his ex wife and blah blah blah I’m so rich it hurts.  It’s an ode to mediocrity and a parody of music.  It is essentially a pure representation of evil and all that is wrong in the world.

But the video my friends is something to behold.  Imagine the Hoff but really taking himself seriously and you have a fair idea of what to expect.   At one point there are two Ronan’s each gazing longingly into the others dead eyes.   The vast emptiness reflected therein is  chilling.

And I’m not sure what is worse, that he made this modern-day horror or that in the comments section under the video people praise it and one particularly bright person asks, “what does the video mean?”  I suspect this person has problems tying their laces and finds door handles a challenge.

Remember when music videos were an art? or when music was for that matter.

We’re doomed.
