    Default The Wiggles and VH: weird parallels...

    For those of you with toddlers, I am sure you are familiar with the Wiggles, those four Aussies who dress in what appear to be Starfleet uniforms from the original "Trek." Anyway, my 18 month old twins love these guys which means I have been exposed to waaaaay too much of their TV show, DVDs, etc. (Worse, the only Wiggly Play Center in the US is about 3/4 of a mile from my house.)

    Ok, so I have begun to notice weird parallels with these guys and VH.
    - The guy in red, Murray, refers to himself as "The King of Guitars." Of course, we know who the REAL King of Guitars is...
    - They ride around in the "Big Red Car." Dave drove a Big Red Car, most notably in the "Panama" video.
    - In the video for "Hot For Teacher," VH had versions of themselves as little kids. In at least one series, the Wiggles have had version of themselves as little kids.
    - The fans of both bands go crazy for them and have been accused by those who "don't get it" as being juvenile...
    (there are others but they start to get a bit thin...)

    Ok, and now the weirdest parallel...
    It was announced yesterday that the original lead singer, the Yellow Wiggle, has left the band. His replacement is named.... Sam. (Cue the Twilight Zone Music).

    Anyway, I thought it was pretty weird.

    My favorite number used to be 5150. Now, it's 41-38.

    Well, then it should get really weird when they eventually fire "Sam" and replace him with Tinky Winky the gay Teletubbie, right?

    Welcome back, Van HALEN!!!!

    ...It's the BAND and Dave is really the cat that can front VH. He sang his ASS off and was really cool. No cheese here guys, this is filet Mignon! - Steve Lukather's comment after witnessing a Van HALEN 2007 rehearsal
