Okay, as you may or may not know, I am a huge, huge fan of Sean Bean. I ADORE Sean Bean. Sean Bean is full of awesome.
I also, as you may or may not know, adore Nine Inch Nails…except for that song. “Closer.” I liked that song when it first came out, but then, sure enough, it became that song. You cannot go into a nudie bar in America and not hear that song. You cannot watch a movie that has a scene in a nudie bar without hearing that song. You cannot go into a club, non-nudie, where that song is played and not have dudes acting like they are in a nudie bar and you are working in one. I am so damn sick of that song.
However, that song has now been made cool again. See, Vlad showed me the 2007 remake of “The Hitcher” (remember the old one with C.Tomas Howell and Rutger Hauer?) In this new one, SEAN BEAN plays the scary one man roadkill crew role that Hauer played in the original, and he does it in his own way…and why yes, he managed to redeem that song for me.
Observe (if you are not, oh, adverse to violent shit)
Thank you, Vlad & Sean Bean!
