VID: Call Me Maybe (Avengers/Iron Man, Tony Stark/everyone)

So [personal profile] purplefringe and I ended up working on Tony Stark vids at the same time. Her vid, Idioteque, is a gorgeous exploration of Tony's psyche, complex and layered and really smart.

Mine is -- less so. And I'm not even sorry.

Watching them back to back may or not be recommended.

lyrics:

I threw a wish in the well,
Don't ask me, I'll never tell
I looked to you as it fell,
And now you're in my way

I'd trade my soul for a wish,
Pennies and dimes for a kiss
I wasn't looking for this,
But now you're in my way

Your stare was holdin',
Ripped jeans, skin was showin'
Hot night, wind was blowin'
Where you think you're going, baby?

Hey, I just met you,
And this is crazy,
But here's my number,
So call me, maybe?

It's hard to look right,
At you baby,
But here's my number,
So call me, maybe?

Hey, I just met you,
And this is crazy,
But here's my number,
So call me, maybe?

And all the other boys,
Try to chase me,
But here's my number,
So call me, maybe?

You took your time with the call,
I took no time with the fall
You gave me nothing at all,
But still, you're in my way

I beg, and borrow and steal
Have foresight and it's real
I didn't know I would feel it,
But it's in my way

Your stare was holdin',
Ripped jeans, skin was showin'
Hot night, wind was blowin'
Where you think you're going, baby?

Hey, I just met you,
And this is crazy,
But here's my number,
So call me, maybe?

And all the other boys,
Try to chase me,
But here's my number,
So call me, maybe?

Before you came into my life
I missed you so bad
I missed you so bad
I missed you so, so bad

Before you came into my life
I missed you so bad
And you should know that
I missed you so, so bad

Okay, you are going to think I'm lying, but I swear I'm not. That was the first time I ever heard that song. I knew the internet meme, but I didn't even realise it was based on a song, I thought it was just like...I am afraid to name any other memes I think were vomited up from the depths of tumblr itself for fear I shall display yet moar of my pop cultural ignorance.

So anyway, the cracktasticness of spending the first half of this vid going WAIT, WHAT THIS IS A SONG LIKE AN ACTUAL SERIOUS SONG THAT GETS PLAYED ON THE RADIO did nothing but heighten the adorable dorktasticness and deadly serious crack of Tony's perfect "call me maybe" body language.

Superfuntimes - thanks for sharing.

(Oh right there with you, I think I *assumed* in some way it was a song but it was an embarrassingly long time before I heard it outside internet meme world.)

I DIDN'T WANT TO LOVE THIS VID BUT I DID. So adorable and fun, Bruce Hulking out on the "ripped jeans" line stood out as a flail-inducing moment. All the little moments of Tony having chemistry with *everyone*. :D
