Christians, Part 2

I never intended for there to be any follow-ups to my Christians post. Really. I realize that I can tend to obsess about things, especially when it comes to things involving Christians. But, this is totally out of my hands. You see, a fellow blogger recently sent me this video. Before I go any further I want you to watch this video…in its entirety. This was posted on Youtube by someone who runs a bizarre Christian blog called The House of Hunt. It’s a very interesting blog. Check it out after you check out this video.
**UPDATE**
The video was removed from Youtube. It was also removed from The Way International’s website. Wow. I guess they really weren’t enjoying all of the new traffic. They really should learn to have a sense of humor about themselves. I mean come on, really? Well, at least I have the memories of that video and the hours of laughter it gave me.

Now, for just a few notes…

1) Evidently, these people are part of The Way International. This is a religious group that is considered to be a cult by most mainstream Christians. No comment.

2) I have watched this video over 10 times and find it funnier each time.

3) I love the fact that they worked the phrase “legal rights” into their song. That takes talent.

4) Not many people can pull off choreographed “freestyle” in a suit, tie, and wireless headset microphone–correction, no one can actually pull that off.

5) I think I’m gonna watch it again.

OK. So, I have a confession to make before I start getting all kinds of comments reminding me of my past. I once was part of a music group that can now be considered equally cheesy and hilarious. Just add a some bad acting and a multi-media slide presentation. I guess this isn’t totally a new confession. I just feel like every now and then I should own up to it, just in case any old video footage ever surfaces. We would travel to churches, located mostly in the Pagan Midwestern states and attempt to convert people that were already going to church. As you can imagine, we were incredibly successful.

From a performance standpoint, I do have to say that this trio was very well rehearsed. Oh, shit, who am I kidding? This was ridiculous. I sure do hope they produce more material for us…

  1. Jared and I have watched this multiple times as well. I find it waaay more funny but also a bit painful given our shared history. I loved your honest account of our time in unamed group. Jared reminded me the other day that I have a CD (he can be cruel)If you still have yours, please burn it.

  2. On a chessiness factor, I think it is a toss-up between them and the Living Christmas Tree. LOL. I do love his moonwalking/freestyle solo in the middle of the song. I can’t say that I have ever seen that in any Christian musical performances.

  4. WTF…that pretty much sums it up…definitely more funny given the vhs tapes I’ve seen… šŸ™‚

  5. yeahhh… we’ve been laughing at these too. unfortunately we share a common bond (i think I feel a song coming…). I think commenter Jaclyn summed it up best! šŸ™‚

  6. Hey I too have one of your cd’s….and what’s funny is my 5 year old likes it…
    That video was like the nails on the chalkboard for me…

  7. Cheesy though they may be, please don’t forget that “unnamed group” (of which you were a part) did challenge a lot of people in their faith back in the day. It’s funny to look back and laugh about the method now, but I really was encouraged by the message as a teenager, and I believe that a lot of the people in the group were sincere in their presentation.

    (Not sure I can say as much for the “Living Christmas Tree” – I never did really get the point of that, and I was IN one!) šŸ™‚

  8. dang it, they pulled it. I saw a little. Frighteningly hilarious. Definitely brings back memories.

    Somebody posted this one on facebook — they don't have quite the dance moves, but their lyrics are atrocious šŸ™‚

  9. Oh, and who said burn Impact CDs?!? That’s shocking!

    (easily said for one whose year was so bad that they didn’t let us record . . . )

  10. Found the website. There’s more there.

    Suffer through the first slow section to get to them rocking out. Gotta love that prime unison.
