What Is This Review All About?
26 November 2010 | by (Valhalla) – See all my reviews

Now He Is Not My Favorite Spoof Artist...My Favorite Is A Bit Of A Change...Kevin Bloody Wilson (Ad In Review: Kev For Prez). I Enjoy Most Of The Songs On This DVD The Only One's That I Hate Are "Its All About The Pentiums", "Bedrock Anthem", "Headline News", "I Lost On Jeopardy", "This Is The Life" & "Living With A Hernia" Every Other Song I Like So Thats 6/24 Songs That Are Bad. When I First Saw "Smells Like Teen Spirit"...You'll Never Believe This...But...I Was A Die-Hard Fan Of Nirvana...I Was & Am Not The Kind Of Guy That Reacts To A Spoof Or A Remake Of A Song Or Movie That Had A Dead Guy In It Like "Oh Hey You Insulted Him" But That Can Be Understandable If Its A Bad Spoof Or Remake But This Was Not A Bad Spoof In Fact Besides Those 6 None Of Them Are Bad Spoofs. All In All A Great Video DVD.

Best Song: Jerry Springer

Best Music Video: Smells Like Nirvana(How Similar It Is To The Original Is Uncanny)
