Lumpy Little Pill

I've never particularly been a fan of Alanis Morissette -- not that I have anything against her (except the usual complaint in the word dork community about her abuse of the word "ironic"), and, in fact, I like a few of her songs, but she's just not really on my radar. Which is why I'm doubly delighted by the video for her cover of "My Humps" -- who ever expected this Jonathan Coulton-esque performance from Alanis? Sweet.

Best piano-driven, slow-tempo, inappropriate cover version since Ben Folds did "Bitches Ain't Shit".

I wish the video weren't so silly, though. I think it would have been better (and funnier) to actually play it completely straight.

Wait, so it's... it's really her?
Yeah, I agree with Doug. The idea is AMAZING, but the video is... yeah. It's not the right video. Also what is that, a king-sized sheet? She couldn't even by a backdrop that hung straight? Or like, some lights to point at it?
