Far too cute for 1,000 words, this gay-baseball rap video is fun because it has fun. Yes, the words are silly and addictive; yes, the performances are amateur--in the best sense. The whole idea seems to be just putting it out there: we are who we are, the L.A. Batboys, who play, dance, rap and act just like guys on any weekend ballclub. That there is an emotional attraction between lead rapper Jay Spears and the bear-like Mike is just one more bit of reality that is worth celebrating, like a good day at the park and a hot shower after the game. I suppose you can attach all kinds of deeper meaning if you want to delve; my inclination is just to like Mike and all these "guy" guys right back.
