YouTube Tuesday: Fierce Blue Ascot

I don't know about you, but if fashion is cyclical I dread the return of the electric-synth gender ambiguity that dominated pop music during the 1980s.

You know, that whole era of big hair, lots of makeup, frilly clothes and musical instruments that play themselves?

This is some kind of marketing campaign for Sprint's music download service. The actor playing "Ian" is Dominic Keating, a star of the ill-conceived Star Trek: Enterprise series.

Still this video is completely plausible. Such a band could have existed and produced such a song. The parody is spot on, and it's good to see companies taking a risk like this.

UPDATE: I just discovered that you can download a copy of the mp3 (for strictly ironic purposes of course).
