MONDO EXTRAS

Thank You by Dido

So, we're on a city street where a little purple house sits between giant skyscrapers. On the street, a group of construction workers with bulldozers and cute little orange "Look I'm reflecting -- don't run into me" vests stand, unable to do their work on demolishing the cute l'il purple house to put up another giant skyscraper. The first crappy thing about this video is the fact that the construction workers are bummed that they can't do their work. Being forced to just sit on their bulldozers and yell at hot women walking by all day? A construction worker's dream.

A group of cops walks past the workers (who don't try to stop them, but, internally, they're booing) through the cute l'il garden, holding an eviction notice. We can tell that this is an eviction notice because we get a close-up on a piece of paper reading "EVICTION NOTICE" in forty-two point Times New Roman, Bold. The paper is green. The by-now way-too-familiar beat is playing with the guitar and the drums and the occasional Flute Of Renaissance Faire Drum Circles. Despite the title card at the beginning, we hope that VH-1 messed up and is actually playing the Eminem version; sadly, we soon discover, this is not the case. The cops knock and, in slow motion, call out either "open up" or "I'm the cop!" Dido herself leans against a doorjamb in proper earthquake procedure, wearing the proper earthquake ensemble: black stretch pants and a fuchsia halter. Her arm is twisted behind her because she is either scratching her ass, holding a gun, or counting on her fingers the seconds before her fame officially ends.

Pamie: I remember when this was a Cagney and Lacey episode.
Stee: You watched Cagney and Lacey?
Pamie: It was the eighties. It was a different time.
Stee: Yeah, and Booker was a repeat that night.
Pamie: Maybe.

Dido starts singing, looking forlorn because her cute l'il purple house is due to be demolished, and she just has to sing one more song before the bulldozers come in (and before her fame ends for good). We switch to a jarring close-up.

Stee: Man is she cock-eyed!
Pamie: And her teeth: crazy yellow.

Back to the doorjamb, as the cops try to look under the window shade. The cops haven't gotten to "Bending Down During Surveillance Operations" yet in their training. Meanwhile, Dido's still scratching her ass. Another scary close-up.

Pamie: Her mascara is really sharp. And I think they put some sort of white crap in the corner of her eyes to make them less gooey and yellow.
