Scarlett Johansson’s New Video Is About What You’d Expect

April 30th, 2008 // 4 Comments

Here’s Scarlett Johansson‘s video for the first single off her album of Tom Waits covers, Anywhere I Lay My Head. It’s called “Falling Down.” And let’s put it this way, Scarjo isn’t exactly a songbird. The instrumentation’s ok, but she sounds like tuneless depressed girl karaoke. The video features a day in the life of Scarjo. She chews gum, they put makeup on her tattoo, Salman Rushdie tries to get in her pants. You know, typical stuff. Supposedly, David Bowie’s on this track but all I can hear is someone taking themselves way too seriously.

    This was one of the most painful things I’ve ever, EVER listened to and watched. PAINFUL. I’m still in shock with how bad she sounds… and someone released it on a CD and now it’s available for other people to listen to and also be in pain.

    What is Rushdie doing in this video? What does this video say? Mean? Do? This is my glamorous, non-Lindsay Lohan life?

    And to think… this was probably her best take… and the sound engineers STILL couldn’t fix it!

    Sum up… boobs & puffy face can neither sing or act. And somehow she keeps getting work. Hollywood truly sucks.

    My 5 cent rant. Peace out.

    C’mon, are you guys serious??
    It really wasn’t that bad. Sorta drones on but I still give her a lot of credit. I mean she sang with The Jesus and Mary Chain and that band has street cred.

    If you guys are saying this is the most painful thing you’ve ever heard, I guess I would be correct in saying that you are throwing Scarjo in with *gasp* Shitey Montag?? NOW THAT IS THE MOST PAINFUL THING EVER!
