You’re about to graduate, you’ve done more cover letters than DFS has done sales, and yet you remain jobless, prospect-less and a continuing disappointment to your nan, who seems to think it’s your fault that there are no jobs for life anymore.
So, what are you going to do? All the blood, sweat and tears that went into school, uni, dissertations and exams was shed needlessly, you’ve moved back in with your parents and have quickly submerged yourself in a daily Come Dine With Me marathon, pausing only to shovel refried beans into your mouth before discovering a tasty treat crusted down the front of your t-shirt from yesterday’s ketchup on toast sesh.
Well, well, how the mighty have fallen.
You will be a star
But hang on a minute, don’t condemn yourself to a day-time TV life just yet. In fact, get up off the sofa, wash the brown sauce out of your hair, maybe even put some underwear on, ’cause kid, Brett Domino is gonna make you a star!
What you have just read may seem like an overreaction on my part, but what it actually is, is a reflection of my enjoyment of this video, which might I add, is colossal.
Brett Domino of the Brett Domino Trio is a comedian and musician from Leeds whose YouTube profile is teeming with classic, dry, British humour. He is absolutely the kind of person that YouTube is made for.
How to… Jason Derulo
In this particular video, Brett does a sort of ‘How To’ on making a hit pop song, and ceremoniously puts the likes of Jason Derulo to shame in the process. Firstly he advises “having a tootle” on an instrument that you can’t play, so as to make sure that the song doesn’t sound too good.
Secondly, and crucially, you must use the internet for help, for example when trying to think of sexy phrases, or sexy women to incorporate as your muse in your hit pop song.
Ultimately, when it comes to lyrics, Brett states that they don’t really matter. Which was undoubtedly the same mantra that Tinie Tempah has been going with… As beautiful as he is, he has so many clothes he keeps them in his aunt’s house…What?!
Overall, I cant decide what I like best about this video, whether it was the slightly creepy, Jennifer Lawrence undertones or the word “tootle,” or actually, the fact that the song is available on iTunes.
Whichever, I cannot turn it off.
The comments generally involve support and love of Brett’s work and in some cases hostility towards current popstars like Derulo or Justin Bieber, or as one commentor referred to him: “Justin Beibshit.”
One commenter is, I suspect, entirely too involved in the whole thing and states nothing more than: “That bassoon does something to me,” a comment that admittedly, slightly concerns me.
Personally, I really like the comments quite far down to which Brett Domino himself begins to respond, saying things like, “I think you may have misunderstood,” and “I edited out the 40 minutes ‘attempting to make a sound out of the bassoon’ section as I feared it may have impacted negatively on viewing figures.”
Overall, this is probably one of my favourite videos I’ve reviewed whilst doing this column, and I am now happy in the knowledge that all my unemployment woes are gone, thanks to Brett Domino.
