L is for “Literal Videos”

literal videos

Literal Videos became a “thing” starting around 2008, so they are an “oldie but goodie” among fun things to do online.

Never heard of a literal video? Here’s what Wikipedia says about them:

A literal music video, also called a literal video version, is a parody of an official music video clip in which the lyrics have been replaced with lyrics that describe the visuals in the video.*

The attraction of literal videos came from listening to songs on the radio or watching MTV music videos, where it was common for listeners to guess at the actual lyrics when the real words were unknown.

As you can imagine, MEGA silliness ensues with Literal Videos…

Here are a couple of our favorite Literal Videos for you to enjoy:

And one more… not really a literal video, but Thug Cats and it is hilarious!
