video #11: Daft Punk - One More Time
What is this? Some kind of take-off on a bad AMV? It's so cheesy!
Why did I recoil in disgust the first time I saw this video? Why did I roll my eyes every time my friend Nick would put on Discovery? Why did I think that the whole thing was just a big, "ironic" joke about the 80s? And why do I now think that both are brilliant classics? What changed my mind?
The answer: slowly becoming a pathetic, cultural lemming had a lot to do with it. And a hopeless anime addict, too. Together, it's a combination that I wouldn't wish on anyone.
