HTML CIRCUIT PARTY



If only the boys in Computer Science class really looked like this. . . .

Funny watching depilated, denatured gym bunnies with tramp stamps pretend to be nerds.  Glasses and tape is all it takes.

    My sentiment exactly... and they're definitely the most TAN nerds I've ever seen. Guess their computer monitors give off UV rays?

    REAL nerds come in all sizes, and some of the pastiest dorkiest of the nerds I've met actually are very sexy!

  3. I agree the "nerds" could have been nerdier and hotter. But I do appreciate the concept

  4. I agree as well. The nerds are just twinks with taped glasses. I think the cello player maybe the only real nerd, bearded but nerd. Non?

  5. I've seen the criticism that the gogo boys in the video aren't nerdy enough repeated elsewhere, but I don't get it. The video isn't called "nerd documentary." It's "sexy nerd," a comical tribute to the sexy nerds of the world.

  6. Hi GayPimpFan. Here's my 2 cents on why the video is problematic:

    Instead of using stereotypical gym bunny bodies, why not sexualize what it is we think a nerd to be (i.e. that which signifies a "nerd")? Particularly if that kind of reorientation is what the focus of the song proposes? Rather say, than use models signifying a radically different affinity (i.e. WEHO gym bunny) that actually functions to obliterate and contradict a "body type" which might otherwise signify "nerd".

    The video is in essence pretending to advocate for difference, while in effect saying "can't everyone please conform to the same standard of male beauty that gives me a boner!" . . . The only kind of body we could put in a video to "accurately" imply desire is a body the message of the song contradicts, but the logic of making a "successful" gay music video demands. The message and the content contradict each other. Its a pretty sure example of one market trying to assimilate the signifiers of another and doing so in a shallow, inconsistent fashion (in this case, with black rimmed glasses and tape).

  7. So sayeth the naturally beautiful and hyper intelligent porn star. But I agree. Colby should feature some true nerd core rappers who are too busy focusing on hacking, gaming and other techie stuff to spend time worrying about whether or not they are nerds.
