Bowie's Major Major Tom

Originally, I was going to make this posting about a mashup of the already-half-forgotten DiCaprio film Blood Diamond and the kid's kult klassick Labyrinth.

But then I thought, hmmmm... I wonder if anyone's taken the time to discuss the state of David Bowie's trousers in this movie. Or, more to the point, what's inside them. To put it baldly, Bowie's costume designer saw Derek Smalls in This Is Spinal Tap and thought, "Great idea!"

Sure enough, YouTube being YouTube, there's a ten minute clip of a guy talking about it with a fake British accent, showing clips from the film to back him up, and dancing in front of his camera in emulation as bad-mid-eighties-Bowie plays. Like he says, "You're gonna become addicted, and you're not gonna know why."

how annoying is it that I can't watch embedded videos on my new iPhone? Sigh...
