Oh. Em. Gee. I was a little behind on our tweets when last night I just noticed that the Gay Pimp (AKA Jonny McGovern) tweeted his new music video (which is a duet with Nadya Ginsburg) called “Modified” to us a few days ago. Needless to say, I watched it right away and the verdict? I love it and find it to have quite the catchy beat! The premise of the song and video is one of those random things that you never really talk about…which is part of its brilliance.
Have you ever been to a fitness class or boot camp? I’ve been to many myself. So there’s the regular version to the exercises, and then there’s the “modified” (less difficult) version. Well, this video calls out the lady in the class that shows up late, steals your mat, and does all her exercises…modified. LOL. The main women that does everything modified in the video is played by Melanie Hutsell and the chorus goes like this: “Middle-aged…Lady…In my aerobics class…doin’…everything…modified”. LOL.
I feel like there’s a parallel to the modified lady in this video and Ryan Steele & Amy Goodmurphy‘s “Tiny Victories” ladies. You bet those two would be doing their exercises modified as well.
