Teen Makes ‘Beautiful’ YouTube Music to Impress Girl
In the 1989 movie ‘Say Anything,’ lovelorn teen Lloyd Dobler stood in the yard of Diane Court holding a boombox blasting a Peter Gabriel song with the hopes of encouraging her to give him a second chance.
In 2012, the technological equivalent of wooing a girl appears to be the creation of a personalized YouTube music video.
While we don’t know the exact context here surrounding the emotional significance of the Bryan Adams song ‘(Everything I Do) I Do It For You’ and a girl named Emily, we can’t help but hope this heartfelt video puts him in her good graces.
Watch above as an admittedly poor singer clad in a weirdly monochromatic Hawaiian print shirt and khaki cargo shorts sings to his dear Emily in the middle of the woods. Don’t try to understand — just take a moment and feel the music.
