Is it a comment on auto-erotica? Is he the object of his desire but because of some complex body dysmorphia he sees a beautiful woman in lingerie when he looks in the mirror and can't understand why everyone else sees a weirdly gyrating old geezer in a a jacket with no vest or shirt on? Is that because he's wearing a man-bra? Has he got moobs as a result of taking hormones to STOP THE CANCER IN IT'S TRACKS!!!!!!

Is he commenting on Bruce Jenner? And wider issues of transgender rights? Is Morrissey thinking of changing his sex so his gender presentation more accurately aligns with societal expectations once he's a woman? So that people stop mocking his bird like hands waving around in an 'unmanly' way despite his knuckledusters and xmas tree signet rings like wot gangsters wear on the Costa Del Crime?

Is it a song about how, as an asexual narcissist, he is still forced to remain within the gender binary? And how he's had enough of it and if folk don't stop harassing him he'll have surgery and play loads of Wayne/Jayne County videos before appearing onstage? If so, I salute his bravery and courage in confronting the ongoing fight against heterosexism, cissexism and normative gender presentation codes.

It can't just be a really, really bad video, can it? It can't just be a flat, exhausted capitulation to decades old MTV tropes. There must be a deeper meaning. We must all keep searching for it. CG has seen some 'signs' exhibited by Mexican gardeners. They are laughing. But at what? Who? Surely not Morrissey? They must be laughing at the credulous literalism of everyone on this thread who have failed to divine the epochal messages hidden within this video. Do we need to run it backwards? Is that where the message is? I hope this helps.

Ah please come on, be fair. The video is rubbish but i'm a 'young woman' as you put it and i think middle aged Morrissey is lovely - really handsome.

You may find him 'lovely' and 'really handsome', but can you imagine actually having sex with him? Do you think he is imagining *kissing* those women or is his fantasy that he is one of those women, and he's being subjected to the heterosexual gaze? He never looks at them. So, does he fantasise about being them? Lots of women think Cliff Richard is 'lovely' and 'really handsome' but I doubt many of them seriously have sexual fantasies about him.

I hope CG doesn't read this comment. It might upset her..sorry about that, CG!:rolleyes:

No. I'm Samantha. When I'm in my bra and panties, of course. Don't tell the missus!

Well interestingly that's the first thing I compared it with. I mean, we've gone from Martin Boorer's daughter in a tiara to bland half-hookers in suspenders. Both ends of the spectrum, minus the Virgin Mary in the middle.

I'm beginning to frankly suspect someone doesn't know what a female is.

Also, no amount of naked ladeez can distract us from the fact one is only asking a seven-months pregnant woman to open for him in the hope that she's going to deliver or miscarry on stage or something equally gaymatic.

Hey, I see ya, dumbass. You're lucky the 74 y.o didn't die on your tour. And what a surprise, nobody bothered filming HER. Guess something was wrong with her pantyhose.

Doesn't Amanda Palmer cavort onstage in her bra and panties? Why isn't she in the video? I bet she's really pissed.

Has there ever been a video where Morrissey has directed a sexual gaze at a woman? *thinking*

I think this video would have been better if the girls got their norks out and gave them a bit of a jiggle. (symbolising how the record industry wants to milk creative talents dry, or something?)

After twenty pages I am not sure what I can add. I read some of the comments first so I thought I was prepared...I was not. That was...bad.

However, in a weird way it reminded me of some the mid 80s Smiths videos that are probably taken from Top of the Pops one can find on youtube (Shoplifters of the World Unite comes to mind). I think its the dancing around without a microphone. That's about the only nice thing I can think of to say.

It does not work. And the weird scenes of lingerie models and poor filming quality just make it really really really bad. But everyone knows this by now.

Re: Kiss me a lot - Official video

whole video and story about it must be some kind of sneering to his current status in the music market.







this has to be a pointed jab at someone, a la "you just haven't earned it yet, baby."

in 6 months we'll all have either forgotten about it or be claiming, "yes, i got the joke from the get-go...."






Sam Esty Rayner Photography Actually, the whole video is Morrissey's concept.








anybody with us?

Mozzer loves the ladies, I plan on writing Kiss Me A lot on my boobs and flashing Mozzer this tour. I think that was where the vid was leading to.

Completely off topic, but that completely reads like one of Rik Mayall's poems from the Young Ones. :lbf:

Well you're extremely lucky folks. The video kind of explained itself in my sleep. Basically my brain rearranged all the different opinions I read here in a post-modernist way, or something that sounds fancy like that, and presto.

So I took the Pharrell and ran with it, and present to you, after others, this awful video as "Morrissey's Comment on the Current Music Industry."
First, there was this recent TTY note, entitled Surrendered Will I am. This time it was probably an allusion to Pharrell. I've noticed Morrissey marks the territory in advance now when he's planning a prank. Notice how some of you found the repetition of the word "happy" bizarre. Well. Notice also, how he thanks his audience in different languages at the end. It did seem a bit slutty to me, but no more than usual at the time. How little we ever really suspect anything...Sigh.

So basically it boils down to this. Although I don't think he had all that in mind when the song was first born, he made a video in which ladeez of the night or at the very least ladeez of the very late afternoon invite you in different languages to kiss them, when in reality they invite you to buy them a lot, just like M and his download something useful or useless, plug out and then just go. Morrissey invites you to regard him as a total media slut (as if we needed an invite), as no record company will have him unless he proves he can sell. The video looking cheap just reinforces the idea that he is considered to be as cheap as a not very successful stripper.

Now there's the Sam intrigue. And here I have to go wtf a bit and invent something improbable, as it's probably the most likely thing.(Nah not really but have no other theory at the moment)
So I reckon M's sister and mother begged Morrissey to open his nephew's eyes as to his, er, work, seeing that his career isn't going anywhere (although this theory doesn't work if all the people who thumb up "blurred lines" on youtube buy SER's photos. Which is entirely possible, as it's kind in the same field; of elegant mammals. )
Anyway. Unc is reluctant to tell Sam there's only one real artist in the family, because, as unbelievable as it sounds, he has feelings for the boy. So he decides to go the Apocalypto route and let Fat Fatum, aka, The Big Crowd, decide of Sam's fate, and he throws it that video. Unfortunately, not consisting only of a drunk Britney in Las Vegas, The Crowd heaves it up con mucho protestacion. Yeah they'll do that sometimes.


Well that's all very well but the fact remains: Morrissey took a perfectly good song, and ruined it. Kind of like I imagine Cliff Richards would ruin a 15 y.o. boy. (and precisely, where was Cliff when that video was shot?). It may sound funny, but it's not. It sucks. People just wanted a nice little song to clap along to, and suddenly they're forced to watch Manchester's attempt at Porn Chic (no I ain't got a clue what I'm talking about either.) And Morrissey had to hire his nephew, when he could have told him years ago that, unless his empty photographs of vacuous babes was a lessthanzeroesque comment on the current Californian society, he had better take pictures of cauliflowers, because he was no Jake Walters, no Sir.

Now everybody except maybe a couple of people in Poland is absolutely disgusted, and unless Sam is as masochistic as his uncle, he can't be very pleased either.

That song wasn't Morrissey to ruin. He can ruin his life all he wants, but not good songs. People were happy for him he had a song like that for chrissake. I was actually happy for Jesse.

Ergo, however you look at it, your uncle is as thick as Thicke, Sam. And quite unable to "give" something without snatching it back, or damaging it in some way. I bet you kind of knew that. Hope you're different.

Also, for research purposes, I had to watch "blurred lines", and someone will have to pay for the ophtalmologist. And they will.

Well that went well, didn't it?

Things like this video disaster don't happen overnight. They are a result of a decline over many years. A slow chipping away of standards led directly here. Hopefully a few more people are realising that the person trading under the brand name Morrissey at the moment bears scant relation to the previous incarnation.

Doesn't everyone change as they get older. Could be worse, he could be appearing in I'm a celebrity or a butter advert.

Anyone not like kiss me a lot or not going to the U.S gigs off the back of this video?
