Think the 'Out Of Control (Song 4 Mutya)' video is rubbish? Fear not — Mutya has put an ALTERNATIVE VERSION on her website.
Here it is.
Anyway, here are five of the contributions we received in the 'think of a better Mutyarmada video' postbox earlier this week.
Mr Sleaze: "Basically, this — http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_J_zA0vHzC8 — should have been the guide for the Song 4 Mutya video… Which suffers the reverse in being a REALLY REALLY shit song with an amazing video. Obviously, the budget would have had to have been a little less than the squillion pounds spent on Lisa Left Eye’s video, but you get the idea… Prince’s Alphabet St video was also something I had in mind that the Song 4 Mutya video would look like."
Dave Culligan: "She should have just recreated this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6qLFy4V400k."
Brad Bowman: "I think the video should be an homage to 80s films like "Sixteen Candles," "Pretty In Pink" and "Ferris Bueler's Day Off." Get a high school gymnasium, put up some streamers, get a gang of kids in vintage clothes and hairdos, get some shots of Mutya dancing with an Andrew McCarthy look-alike, then some other shots Mutya (playing another role, maybe in a wig or contrasting hairdo, as the singer of the band) on stage; cheap, fun, and effective. Oh, and as you pointed out, I think this scenario would definitely present Ms. Buena as anything but a moody bitch."
Chris McGoldrick: "Video starts off with Mutya in her flash car (convertible of course) driving fast up a trendy street in London (in Soho) she’s off to meet her girls for lunch, on the front seat is a copy of the Prince CD – Hot Thing and she’s singing her lyrics to the song. She pulls up at the red light and looks up from her head bowed and sees her ex with his new bit of stuff, drama ensues and a car chase….Mutya starts following them at the lights in a car speed chase around London, obviously to kill the new girlfriend of her ex blokey, she’s out of control! While the chorus is going on the video inter-edits with clips of the car chase and Mutya out clubbing with ‘her girls’ and the blokey she used to be with. Each chorus has this footage while the verses, bridge, etc has the car chase sequence. Finishing with a shot of a smug Mutya parking up and having lunch with her girls….ex boyfriend has crashed his car and looks like a twat."
Ben Richards: "The Mutyamarda video should have three set ups: 1) Mutya as Mafia Boss — shades, cigars, back of a limo, lesbionic dancing molls. Lots of cruising at night, slow motion window winding, dancing, culminating in big out of control gun battle. A bit Madonna-Music but more fierce. 2) Mutya as lady wrestler: She has a fight. Think a violent version of Gabrielle's Rise video, with Mutya slamming people's faces into the floor etc. Lots of flashing lights, sweat, out of control crowds and a big shiny belt for Mutya at the end. 3) Mutya as Queen Elizabeth (with Groove Armada as Sir Walter Raleigh and Sir Francis Drake) on a boat in the Spanish Armada (see what I did there). Costumes, out of control swordfights/ canons/ explosions, more dancing, history etc. Dancing should be ghetto fabulous, with perhaps with louche finger wiggling on the “don’t panic panic” bit. What more would you need?"
