You’ve probably seen The Jackson Crying video, unless you live under a rock. No judgement here. In case you haven’t, here it is:
I only just saw the original video last week after my friend Pam sent the link over and, no joke, I may have had my own personal emotional deluge (Don’t tell anyone…seriously, I have a rep to protect). But wow, what a song! Poor Parker just couldn’t hold it together. I would love to see his reaction to Adele’s Someone Like You or Macklemore’s and Ryan Lewis’ Same Love. I also love that his a**hole of a dad gets so much pleasure at seeing his child struggle with uncontrollable, unmitigated emotion.
We’ve all been there; that almost masochistic series of events you experience while listening to a heavy song – ‘Should turn it off? No, I’ll be alright. Hold it together. Why is this so sad? WHY AM I SO SAD NOW…or am I happy??? I definitely can’t turn it off! What is happening??? (Song ends) I need a nap.’ Anyway, hope you enjoyed that video.
