Welcome all! This is “Music Monday” for April 5 🙂
Today’s post comes courtesy of my friend Lisa who sent this priceless video. The band “Hold Your Horses” (who I confess I’d never heard of before) takes us on a humorous, entertaining tour of Western art history. The band members recreated and hilariously inserted themselves into some classic works of art, and it’s really funny!! Cheerful, lighthearted, but also very clever, this video will bring a smile to your face.
The fun is in identifying the paintings, some of which are obvious, like da Vinci’s The Last Supper at the very beginning. I did pretty well overall and recognized most of them, but a couple of them had me stumped. Now don’t want to ruin it all for you, but I’ll just give you a little heads up: look for Delacroix, Vermeer, Munch, Warhol, Klimt, Caravaggio, Mondrian, Magritte, and a Manet’s Olympia at 1:59 that nearly had me rolling on floor laughing 😆
So here is 70 Million by “Hold Your Horses”. I love these guys!
