Aerosmith’s “Crazy”

July 28, 2011 § Leave a comment

So much in this video is awkward.  First, there’s Steven Tyler, who manages to look more like a caricature of himself everytime anyone sees him.  And then there’s the use of his own daughter in the music video, pole dancing and making out with Alicia Silverstone.  Don’t get us wrong; we love it when girls make out with each other, we just don’t like when it’s done for the male gaze, which is both the patrons of the bar in the video and the mostly male audience of Aerosmith.  (Can you tell we took classes on feminism?  Good, because we are proud of it.)  Also, did this song get into a wormhole?  This belongs in the 70s, not 1994.
