STEEL PANTHER’S VIDEO FOR “IF YOU REALLY REALLY LOVE ME” WORKS ON SO MANY DIFFERENT LEVELS

200

If you’re somehow still not convinced that Steel Panther are fucking brilliant, might I direct you to their new Michael Alperowitz-directed video, for the song “If You Really Really Love Me?” Please note the following when viewing:

  1. It’s a really catchy, really sincere sounding heavy metal semi-ballad that would totally work even if they lyrics weren’t hilarious.
  2. The lyrics are hilarious. I dunno if the band was specifically targeting Extreme’s “More than Words” — the prettiest song ever about trying to get your girl to put out more — or if it’s just a general parody and my brain just happened to go to that 1990 megahit, but whatever, it works either way.
  3. The video, like the song, is perfectly executed: the setting, the way it’s filmed, the way it’s edited, etc., all make it look just like a million other cheesy videos… the band just happens to be doing ridiculous shit.

In other words: this is satire at its finest.

“If You Really Really Love Me?” comes (cums?) offa Steel Panther’s latest, Balls Out, which is available now wherever fine music is sold.
