I Got Luv4Buddha

One of the most fascinating aspects of the recent boom in internet video is the phenomenon of the reimagining and resplicing of movie trailers and music videos, as seen on netvid portals such as YouTube. The result is sometimes more entertaining than the original. The most creative video productions often use entirely original images.

Check out YouTube'r Luv4Buddha's original video set to Pink's (*) blistering indictment of GWB, Dear Mr. President, in which he skillfully splices in haunting pictures along with his own lip-sync perfomance. According to his YouTube profile, Luv4Buddha is a 32-year old Harlem-based social worker. Some of his images are over the top, but I think you'll agree that he's created something memorable.

And do check out Pink's wonderful live performance of Dear Mr. President, here.

* A certain cranky-pantsed blogger wants everybody to know that Pink was accompanied by the Indigo Girls on the studio recording of Dear Mr. President.

UPDATE: Order Pink's latest album, I'm Not Dead, here.
