Another one from Captain Dreamy Eyes - A Day in the Life

(love the "WTF is going on?" bits in this - must be like how it was when people first heard it back in 1967 for the first time)

Another from Robk (from in his rock dungeon) : The Prophet Song

Love he's got no idea where the song is going, and how excited he is to dig deeper into more early stuff.

Yes, yes, another Bohemian Rhapsody, but this might be the best one yet :

No Life Shaq

(Interestingly, like a lot of Americans reacting to this, the 'put a gun against his head / shot him dead'  bit seems to touch a huge nerve - "Whaa? You can't say THAT!!")

Always a fun one for reactions due to the dynamics -

David The Hooman* - Queen - Mustapha

We know what's coming, but they don't . . . wait for it, wait for it . . . BOOM!

i reckon my face also looked like this first time I heard Killing In The Name though

Nice.  They should watch the live performance from The Midnight Special in 1973 - Thijs Van Leer definitely not off his fucking bonce...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g4ouPGGLI6Q


EDIT - ha, I was writing that whilst watching the video and hadn't yet got to the part where...he shows her the live performance from The Midnight Special in 1973.

I dunno. I wish I could watch it without the voice in the back of my head saying has she really never heard Hocus Pocus before?

I can believe it - I know plenty of people older than her who've never heard it, and Focus were MUCH bigger here in the UK than they ever were in the States.

I can't tell either way most of the time, but there's always that doubt when it's in uploaders' financial interests to keep posting as many reaction videos as possible. I don't know anything about this particular couple, but he's obviously a rock fan and she looks like she might be too. I still enjoy a lot of the videos anyway.

Hocus Pocus was a bigger hit in the US than in Britain, for what it's worth. Before Kel was born, admittedly.

Hocus Pocus was a bigger hit there, but their US success lasted only about a year, starting in 73 (solely off the back of Hocus Pocus) and finishing in 74.  Their popularity over there was non-existent prior to Hocus Pocus' release and it waned very quickly after, and they never toured the States again until their comeback in the 00s.  IIRC a few of their albums were never even released over there.

Here in the UK, of course, they gained fame in 72 thanks to their appearances on The Old Grey Whistle Test, as well as some earlier airplay on radio 1 and Caroline in 71, and toured here extensively until their first breakup in 76.

As for the money, I think they say they can't monetise their reaction vids, unless I misheard/misunderstood (which is entirely possible) - I can't check at the mo as I'm on a work device on which video hosting sites are blocked.  Cunts.

It was in the Robocop remake more recently than that.

Well recent and widespread. A Nike ad full of celebrities for the most popular sporting event in the world is more likely to prick the public consciousness.

I've never seen that ad.  Neither has Mrs Nose.

They did their best. I guess they were beaten by the vuvuzela.

I am biased, I think for an ad it's great. The Rooney stuff still makes me chuckle and all the stuff about Ronaldo being entirely predictable.

I didn't mishear - they say they can't and don't monetise their vids because they're upfront about using copyrighted material.

Not really knowing quite how making money with YT works, I can only take them at their word - they may be making millions every second for all I know...

Thanks for the information, and my apologies through the ether to them. I should be less cynical about everything reaction videos in general because some of them are a lot of fun.

I was presuming they're rock fans. They have rock radio stations in the States.

They won't be making any money from these videos as any advertising revenue will go to the artist,  but it grows their subscriber base for future videos which they can monetise. Also when you reach a certain level you'll be approached to do brand deals within the videos which pay well.
