5 of the best Literal Videos

Unlike misheard lyrics, Literal Videos are cover versions of songs with the lyrics changed to match the action in the video. Youtube user DASjr Productions has uploaded some absolutely hilarious examples, and others have followed suit. Here are my favourite videos by DASjr, which had me giggling like a lunatic yesterday. The Bonnie Tyler and Nirvana ones are way funnier than the others, but I got a smile from all of them. The “cat frame” is to avoid the videos being blocked on copyright grounds (which rather undermines the fair use/parody idea).

Total Eclipse of the Heart
“I’m swaying side to side / these dancers need to stop / the gayest man on earth would call this over the top”

“kicking down a door in this mock homage / blowing up a car with our stock footage”

I’d Do Anything For Love (But I Won’t Do That)
“I’m spying on women with a cup / should be illegal in all fifty states”

“girls in the car were getting bored / so they left those a-holes at the store”


Heart Shaped Box
“Hey! Dudes! / That blonde girl looks confused”

  1. Found this while seeking other literal videos. Glad you liked these! And good selection, as those are among the ones that I’m most proud of. I hope to have two more new ones this month… (and two more next month?)
