Moby has made a living writing songs for car commercials. Let’s face it, 362,000 search results for “Moby Car Commercial” can’t be wrong. I bet Audi plans it’s new model release dates around Moby‘s new album release date and vice versa. Now it seems as if the machines are revolting against you, dear Moby. While performing some acoustic songs at a book release, Moby was electrocuted by what looks like his acoustic guitar. Here is the video:
It’s not all funny, but if you watch the video above, you can laugh at the fact that after Moby hits the ground, the people in attendance just start taking pictures of him. This comment from the comment section on Youtube made me laugh, nice work Zebonka:
“Well I’m sure Moby’s heart is warmed by the knowledge that if he ever collapses inexplicably, people will just stand there and take fucking photos of him.” Zebonka 13 hours ago
To remedy this interstellar electric bombardment, Moby had better start writing Volkswagen‘s next jingle on a stand up piano and record it onto phonograph, lord knows the results wouldn’t be far off from his current schtick.
So when someone like Moby is electrocuted by a musical instrument it should only be explained in a “Maximum Overdrive/Who Made Who” sort of way and we all know the machine revolt in Maximum Overdrive was caused by an impending alien invasion. So who are we to argue that the explanation for Moby‘s shock is any different? Clearly the digital signals from TV in 2002 have reached the far reaches of the galaxy and what can I say? The aliens are pissed about it. Wouldn’t you be though? Car commercials are already really lame, so car commercials with Moby songs are universally more lame. Lame enough to travel 56 million light years through space/time just to punish the guy responsible. But that’s not where the fall out ends. Pretty soon the Black Keys will be attacked by an ATM at Wells Fargo while they innocently try to get their American Express balance. Band of Skulls will be injured in a car accident when their tour Ford Explorer rolls over the edge of the Hoover Dam. Bibio will fall down an open manhole while he is distracted in the pants region after his Kindle won’t display anything but Penthouse Letters. And Steven Tyler will just get hit by lightning. It’s more of a god/alien thing there.
