We are the West Indies – these are our pretty titties

The WICB is the least professional of the top 8 cricket boards.

Their players are revolting, they use their money for burger king, there first class system is a joke and key players pay their own physio bills.

But, look at these tits bouncing around, nothing says cricket like a pair of gyrating breasts next to a man who is wearing the WICB logo that you can barely see.

It seems that at one crucial artistic meeting someone forgot to say, “Hey, um, is it just me, or have we taken all the cricket out of this cricket video, surely instead of playing the drums we can get someone playing DJ Sammy’s head, or you know, someone playing cricket”. Alas, everyone was already too busy eating burger king and doing coke to notice.

Instead what we have is a fairly well made music video that references the West Indies a lot, but shows us portly men with body paint on, shiny people, dancing women and a dude with a paper mache green costume jumping.

There three very short shots of people watching the cricket on TV.

Oh, and what is with the dudes coming out of the TV like some Japanese horror film? Is that a reference to Jeffrey Dujon’s commentary style?

It’s a lovely effort, and the song is so catchy that you’ll be singing it to yourself while you’re on the train, but you know, what the fuck is it?

If it’s a music video, its ok, if it’s a cricket music video it’s lacking the cricket.

At the very least they could have had the stanford singers in there.

And was that Julian Hunte in the horse’s head costume at the end?

I don’t really understand this, but I can’t look away. Neither can TCWJ, who found it for me.

    I’m surprised they didn’t ask Dougie Bollinger, ol ‘Croc Hips’ himself, to be a backing dancer at the very least.

    Let’s assume that this the WICB trying to turn the state of WI cricket into a music video.

    Basically, the video is saying that the West Indies are actually doing very little but play cricket. They are playing IPL, Big Bash, releasing statements, eating honey and having parties, but they are not really playing that much cricket. That doesn’t mean they are not West Indies, though.

    I think the Voodoo people coming out of the TV is a play on the Prodigy song ‘Voodoo’ people. The lyrics for this song simply goes:
    Magic people, voodoo people.
    The voodoo, who-do-what-you-don’t-dare-do people.
    Voodoo!

    So either they are hoping that a prodigy (pun intended) will rise from the ashes of the West Indies embers and emerge to be a magic person and resurrect the game in the Caribbean to its former glory.

    But I could be totally wrong.

    It’s like “we can’t let you have footage unless it’s a 2 second sample formatted for iPod”.

    All the TV sets in the video look fake. I suppose that is necessary when you have Voodoo people coming out of them.

    I thought the guy in the green paper costume was fantastic.

  5. What a WTF video! I actually got confused in between cos I started to doubt whether it was actually a cricket song due to the lack of references…

    @mspr1nt – NICEE!!!!
