I WOULD HAVE LOVED TO HAVE BEEN THERE FOR THIS VIDEO SHOOT

Dear Oceano: congratulations! You are now only the second worst group to add a vowel to the end of the word “ocean” and use that as your band name.

This video by the band Oceana (yes, Oceana) is only interesting for about three seconds. I suggest you skip to the ten second mark, and then turn the video off around the thirteen second mark. Because what really fascinates me about this video is the following quesiton: How many takes do you think they had to do of everyone starting to headbang all at once like that? I bet somewhere there are at least a half dozen takes where one of the band members starts too soon or too late. In fact, I think it’s fascinating that the singer is the only member of the band who doesn’t partake in the synchronized rockin’ out… or any rockin’ out during the rest of the video. It’s as though he were too stupid to take even the slightest direction, so whomever was in charge decided “Let’s not have him move at all and people will think it’s part of the ‘meaning’ of the video!”




I hope this is just the latest in a trend of bands using a completely fake and meaningless variation on the word “ocean” – we can have Oceani, Oceanu, Oceany,and a few dozen other bands that were too lazy to use an actual word as their band name.
