AJJ vs Ok Go

2016-07-03 by Wombat988 | 36 Comments
Arizona Folk Punk band AJJ (formerly known as Andrew Jackson Jihad) have released a new music video for the lead single from their forthcoming album, 'The Bible 2'. The video presents the band attempting a complex single shot performance in a similar style to the band 'Ok Go'. It has already received criticism from Ok Go fans and people who don't understand parody.
The Bible 2 is due to be released August 19th 2016.

They should make a parody of bands who feel the need to change their name to appease PC crybabies

lol

Video doesn't seem all that complex. I hardly see the comparison with Ok Go, other than the colorful clothing lol.

Why would you go out of your way to change your name and sound so as not to offend anybody but then call your next album The Bible 2? Song is fine but I expect so much more from this band.

If you're gonna change your name then actually change your name, condensing into an abbreviation achieves naff all so why bother? The initials are associated with whatever words you're trying to shield from the eyes of your fans' mums
Couple that with a meek parody that's 3 years too late and a tepid tune, it all combines in a stockpot of rot

Assuming it's about here it goes again, I dont really see why it would be a parody. There are only a very few similarities. So either AJJ are very bad at making parodies, or ok go ( or their fans rather) have no reason to complain. (If it's the first case, they also have no reason, because it's always better to keep quiet then)

video is actually pretty clever and had me laughing for sure, but it'd be easier to sit through if the song wasn't so lame. used to love these guys but their music seems to be pretty close to the bottom of the barrel at this point
