In a bit of a strange coincidence, today I came across this article in the Washington Post with some haunting similarities.

The video was one of those bright, overexposed mishmashes that somehow works put together by McG in the late 90s: see also Smash Mouth, Sugar Ray, or “One Week” by Barenaked Ladies.
