“Just Give Me A Reason” by Pink VS the “Guatemalan Love Song” From The 40-Year-Old Virgin (video)
So… yeah. The title is kinda says it all. Kinda.
There’s no defending this one – or rather, explaining. This is just a weird video. The melodies of “Just Give Me A Reason” by Pink and the “Guatemalan Love Song” from The 40-Year-Old Virgin don’t seem to have much in common, but as every DJ on the planet continues to run “Just Give Me A Reason” into the ground, it just sounds more and more like the “Guatemalan Love Song,” and I’m fairly certain that most of the similarity is happening inside my own mind – hence that clip from the end of Pi.
I believe this is the first short I’ve ever made that includes no original video nor any voice over, so it’s a welcome change. That background music is “Holiday For Strings” by David Rose & His Orchestra. That cover of “Aquarius” (also from The 40-Year-Old Virgin) is from the musical “Hair.”
So… there you go.
