MUSE: Amazingly Amused!

"Brilliant" is the first word that comes to mind after watching this Italian show with guest artists Muse play. It seems that they got a little bothered after learning the producers wanted them to lip-sync and pretend to play all the instruments for their television performance.

So, lead singer Matthew Bellamy took his skillz to the drums and drummer Dominic Howard decided to be the poster boy and rock lead vocals and lead guitar while Christopher Wolstenholme traded his bass in for a guitar and a sweet synth and it was all pure entertainment!

The graphics between camera changes are so awful and "cutting edge" it almost reminds me of those "Be A Star" videos, where you can make yourself a star in a music video booth with your best friends at the amusement park, deciding on your favourite song - which is, unfortunately, not sung by the actual artists (already hilarious).

Then you jam out in front of a green screen where I am sure there is only about 3 different backgrounds to choose from - as I've seen Endoplamic, Sockboy and djthrusst do a version of Metallica rocking the SAME body surf crowd! I promise it was pretty awesome though ;)

Here is a perfect example of what I am talking about, below! The guy in the white hat obviously dreamed of this video moment and worked out some sweet moves. I hope to dance as good as him one day, until then, I will study his foot (and arm) work.
