My favorite J-Roddy Walston video

I've heard stories about Baltimore rock band J-Roddy Walston and the Business covering "Fat Bottom Girls" by Queen. But until I came upon this video, I'd never seen it for myself.

When all the instruments come in, they overpower the camera, and everything gets distorted. But the first minute or so is pretty sweet. Check it out:

Maybe you would have hit 7000 comments by now if you didn't post so many embedded video links that are blocked by the servers at some of our workplaces. I can't wait till I get home to watch these things, Sam!

bryan, i had no idea workplaces did this. how many other MS commenters can't see the video until they get home?

I can watch anything. And I work in advertising, so I do mean anything.

I had a friend that worked at a large company in downtown baltimore that allowed the sunpapers but blocked the sun blogs because blogs were not deemed to be "news" but opinion.

Bryan, I'd say Midnight Sun is a little of both. But, if you listen to my critics, I'm just a big windbag with nothing better to do.

Who are these critics and who is Chris Sligh?
