Since out here in Backwater emails arrive with an only slightly higher frequency than Santa Claus, I didn’t see the 24th video of the ortoAdvent calendar 2011 until the 25th. But then ortoPilot put up the 25th and final video so early, that I woke up to an orto double shot. So here goes, 2-in-1, the grand finale of the amazing music video advent calendar.
First up, it’s your regular cover video. And when we talk about ortoPilot regular, we’re talking about really, really good. Inspired by the cover The Overtones have done of Only Girl In The World, ortoPilot brings you some laid back Rihanna version. Great remedy in case those Christmas tunes blasting from the radio are finally getting on your nerve.
And now – imagine drumroll here – the big 25, coming to you with the question: What would be more Christmas-y than … a little bit of Dizzee Rascal? Correct, ortoPilot – who must be feeling exactly like a dizzy rascal after the video tour de force that was December – with a Santa hat, rocking some Dizzee together with dance video submissions by his viewers. So turn the speakers up loud and dance wiv dizzeePilot*. But don’t forget to head over to ortoPilot’s YouTube channel/Twitter/website afterwards and show the man some love for a great advent calendar.
By the way, the only real Christmas tune you need was done last year by ortoPilot and some friends. Of course Never Mind The Buzzkills has dedicated a track to it: Track 156: Eat That, Grinch!
Have a wonderful time, whether it’s Christmas for you or not.
