Cee-Lo Video for "Fuck You"

Cee-Lo's new song "fuck You" has gotetn a lot of buzz over the last week, especially at the lame attempt to clean it up and make it "Forget You". Is the change necessary for radio play? Yes. But be honest; most of us listen to music on YouTube, and we all know that YouTube doesn't care too much about foul language.

Now, that charming song gets a video treatment that's retro and sweet. Who doesn't love a revenge of the nerds track?



I love the titles that remind us of a cheap theatre, and the diner is always a great place for drama to play out (one of his last videos was set in a dinner, but wasn't nearly as palatable; a girl dumps a guy over breakfast and his heart leaves his chest and sings a sad song. It was really gross.) How I wish I had three identically-dressed singers to back me up wherever I went. Auditions will be held next week.

  1. I think this song is going to be stuck in my head for the rest of the day. I better not sing out loud in the office! And yes, I love the video.
