When the Porn stars announced their challenge to YouTube Nation (their words), we offered a set of DVDs (on top of the NPs iPhone promise) if one of you guys won. Well one of you guys didn’t. But from the looks of this awesomeness, it’s not hard to see why. Here’s the winning entry’s description:
Michael McDonald’s first music video (and Billboard chart success), “It’s Only Divine Right”, became the most influential track of the 1970s. His smooth vocal stylings, coupled with guest performances by Kenny Loggins and Christopher Cross, seemed to pave the way for 80s adult contemporary music. Also, the idea of a “music video” was revolutionary in its own right, and McDonald experiments with one of the earliest known instances of product placement. This song was later covered by Canadian powerpop group, The New Pornographers.
Another interesting fact: McDonald hasn’t replaced the phone featured in this video since it was filmed.
