I'm very amused by the video (below) since the video isn't at *all* what I envisioned based on the music. I always imagined the singers looking like Japanese robots...kind of like Devo. Instead what we get is a fake Medieval romp. I used to think the song was cool...but now....

Bah. I still think it's cool. This song has probably helped multitudes of shy, overly self-conscious tween years kids such as I was get over their inhibitions and actually allow themselves to dance at school parties. That's a good thing.

Heh, yeah I've always thought that video was a bad fit for the song as well. I don't know if I ever pictured Japanese robots when listening to it but I sure as hell never envisioned a midget jester running around in a medieval town during a May Day celebration either. Given the choice I definitely would've preferred your concept.
