I am beside myself with excitement. I love these literal videos, and it's about time they came up with another one. This time the geniuses at Dust Films have literalized Billy Idol's "White Wedding," and it was well worth the wait! Notice how hot Billy was, if you can see through the tears of laughter.
Devon. That's her name. The blonde vixen who enters the geeky (but cute!) dude's apartment and asks to play her tape, yes tape, because her family's stereo is broken. Little does the geeky cute dude know what he's in for. She struts in with her high ponytail, black headband, tied boyfriend shirt and short black biker shorts and stirs up quite a show. Some may call it a strip show, but I call it a rockin' display of fashion circa 1990. With her Madonna undertones, Devon declared herself sexy at hello. I may have been eleven years old but I wanted to be Devon and I turned out OK.
GiggleSugar posted this video of Billy Idol singing "White Christmas" a while back, and we were both surprised at how well the "White Wedding" singer went from rocker to crooner. If you don't believe me, you can listen to Idol's new Christmas album, Happy Holidays, in its entirety online. "White Christmas" is a standout track, but I also like "Merry Christmas Baby" and his take on "Jingle Bell Rock."
Forget "White Wedding." Billy Idol's moved on to "White Christmas." For those of us who remember his tough guy pose, his new Christmas album might seem as weird as the duet that David Bowie sang with Bing Crosby in the 70s. But hey, even pseudo-punk rockers catch the spirit this time of year! And by "catch the spirit," I mean "need money to pay for Christmas presents." All kidding aside, Idol and "White Christmas" works--he really sounds amazing.
