: I knew going into Festivids that thirdblindmouse
was going to get a Hazards of Helen vid from me. I make her a vid every year (except last year). I also knew that she would immediately guess that I'd made said Helen vid. So, I decided to use this to my advantage, using the Helen vid to draw her attention away from a *second* vid. This one.
It's not exactly what she asked for, but I needed to come up with a concept that I could clip quickly with a limited number of episodes. Foeyay seemed the best way to go, so I whipped up this Murdoc vid (after a few false song starts). It is... much more ridiculous than I'd anticipated when I started.
Also, obviously, this owes a debt to the marvelous Doctor Who vid
to the same song by such_heights
. I honestly tried to find a different song for a long time (options included Britney Spears and Nat "King" Cole), because I didn't want to step on their toes. However, ultimately this was the only song that really worked for what I wanted to do. I hope they don't mind.
