I don't know what's worse about that video, Stipe acting like he's in a SNL parody of a gay-themed kids show, Berry beating that single drum, or Buck pretending he's still in the Losing My Religion video and trying to ignore the ridiculousness around him (see: Harry Muffin Jr.)

I recall being at a party in late 1994, at which a bunch of drunk young guys sat around making jokes about, and impersonating, aboriginal people, while listening to "What's The Frequency Kenneth".

It's the Kurt Cobain conundrum -- if you get big, a fair percentage of your fans are now people you yourself can't stand.

P.S. -- I love "Shiny Happy People"! Great tune.

That video is hard to watch. Gotta love Berry's unibrow though.

Fwiw, I didn't even know he'd come out until like last year. I thought his sexuality was still ambiguous.

The Kurt Cobain/REM connection never came to fruition, sadly.

Here is a bizaarro clip.

According to Jarod from that 90s TV Show "The Pretender"

"You're going to see some Rapid Eye Movements?"
