This is a pretty fun idea, and it works out fairly well. The payoff isn't as great as one would wish, but it's all charming and amusing.
It comes from the Funny or Die folks, and they had the idea of disguising the singer Jewel and have her go to a karaoke bar to perform her own songs. The video is very nicely done, and Jewel has a good time with it all, playing a very shy office worker -- and the make-up is excellent.
Fun, too, for me, is that the bar where this all takes place, The Gas Lite, is actually very close to where I live. In fact, I passed it a couple of days ago, on Wilshire Blvd. in Santa Monica. (They clearly proud of their participation in this event, since they note it out front.) The place is probably about 3-4 miles away from me. I've never been there, but driven by often.
Robert J. Elisberg is a political commentator, screenwriter, novelist, tech writer and also some other things that I just tend to keep forgetting.
