Spoofing the unspoofable: Bonnie Tyler’s “Total Eclipse”

I think this video went viral a couple days ago, but I’ve been traveling in Nicaragua and just getting back in the swing of things. It’s a spoof on the Bonnie Tyler video from the 80’s, “Total Eclipse of the Heart” in which the artist takes the visual elements–floating fabric, acrobatic prep school boys, and Tyler herself acting like Eva Peron–and then adds lyrics that reflect the inanity of the video itself. It’s hilarious to hear lyrics like, “there’s nothing else to shoot, so zoom camera under this arch” and then viewing the correlating action.

More reflections on Nicaragua to come. Photos to whet your appetite here.
