Creeped out or creeping in? JoiRyder drops the facts on LoveSix’s video Night of the Creeps
Pop/Rock/Metal/Funk/Dance group LoveSix is busting out the creepiness on the song “Night of the Creeps” all the way from Sydney, Australia. The purpose of the song and accompanying video is to give viewers a little scare– but the cheesy music and the sight of the lead singer with his pants off is the real scare, although I assume this was unintentional.
The video starts out with the cheesy 80’s guitar riffs of the song. Things go all downhill from there. We see the band playing their instruments, as the lead singer prances in front of the camera with stringy hair and guyliner. He lays on the eyeliner thick– stealing his look from fellow Aussie Keith Urban. He struts around wearing weird looking grey leather pants, like he thinks he looks better in them then he really does. There are zombie looking dancers wearing corsets and lace panties making out with each other and trying too hard to be sexy. Then they grab the lead singer and rip off his pants and writhe over him and pour hot wax on his body. This “yeah right” moment in the video defies reality. Then we see the women drinking a dark red substance– could it be wine or blood?? I suppose this was meant to be creepy and scary but just comes across as cheesy and laughable. This is just an overall bad video– the weird looking lead singer, the cheesy corset-wearing women, and the fact that the other band members are basically ignored for most of the video.
LoveSix made a valiant effort to make a “creepy” video to go along with the title of the song but they miss the mark. The only thing scary I saw in the vid is the women making out with each other and the lead singer losing his pants towards the middle of the song… oh yeah… the guyliner. I tried really hard to find something redeeming about the vid but just couldn’t do it. Better luck next time, perhaps! Watch it and let me know if you agree with me.
