It’s been awhile YouTubers… or has it?! This cover of Alanis Morissette’s Ironic is actually the 3rd video we created with the super ginger badass Orla Gartland. Make sure you check out Orla Gartland & Regina Zaremba’s youtube channels to watch the other live “one-take” music videos from our San Francisco / California road trip!
We had the privilege of spending an entire month with Orla Gartland and we learned a couple of key bits of information. One, Orla is hilarious, like stand-up comic status. Secondly, we learned that we both love 90’s music. For those of you who grew up in a dark cave Alanis Morissette “Jagged Little Pill” is easily one of the Top 3 albums from the 90’s and it ranks pretty high in the list of top selling albums of all-time. The moral of the story is that there are a bunch of awesome songs on that album, including one of the most iconic F-Bombs in music history right in the middle of the song “You Oughta Know”.
By the way, there was a pretty serious conspiracy going on as to who that F-Bomb was actually about. Mind you, this was before the days of asking Siri or Snopes, so the rumors were pretty nutty… The two most popular candidates in my school were Keanue Reeves (aka Johnny Utah) or Dave Coulier (aka Uncle Joey from Full House). If you guys remember any other “You Oughta Know” suspects let me know in the comments.
I still can’t watch Full House without being disappointed with Uncle Joey… why so mean to her?? Are you using your comedy as a defense mechanism… who hurt you?
Oh! I almost forgot to mention the awesome mural in the background of this video. We were driving around town looking for the perfect place to film this Alanis Ironic cover, and using the power of the iPhone we found this awesome San Francisco Mural Website with street address for all of the murals around the city. Truly a spectacular win for the internet. I love technology.
In fact, when we were filming we met the person who commissioned the mural, so if you are out there, kind person who let us park in front of their drive way. The mural you had painted by Ursula Young at Ames St & 22nd St is awesome and thank you for the VIP parking spot! Please drop us a comment and let us know what you think of the video we shot in front of your beautiful mural!
Anyway… We love all of you out in YouTube Land, so please subscribe, like, and crack wise in the comments below! Orla Gartland is working hard on some new tunes and we are working on a video for one of them so we got lots more Orland coming your way!
