Who’s Ola Ray, you ask? The girl in Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” video, of course. How soon they forget. And who’s David Munk? Only one of our very favorite wowlebrities. He’s from the New York cast of Girls Who Like Boys Who Like Boys, and he just wrote a review for Ola Ray’s new music video. It’s pretty awesome. From his blog Stargayzing: “A full 29 years after conventional wisdom would have suggested she capitalize on her moment of stardom playing the ingenue in Michael Jackson’s seminal ‘Thriller’ video, former Playboy Playmate of the Month and aspiring singer Ola Ray, 52, has released her debut single and video — and Stargayzing thinks she’s really done something. What exactly that something is depends on how you feel about a six minute D.I.Y. production intended, ostensibly, as a valentine to ‘M.J.’ From our perspective, Ola’s video for ‘Remember’ — that’s what it’s called — seems less like a valentine and more like bizarro attempt to recapture the public’s attention and, perhaps, make a little money along the way. Nothin’ wrong with that. How has fair Ola fared? Well, having become aware of it just late last night, we have already watched it over 20 times! Any music video project must begin with a song. ‘Remember’ is a curious, somber ear worm that, once heard, is impossible to stop thinking about, though it is completely bereft of a single attribute (unless you consider writing a pop song with only diminished chords to be some sort of accomplishment, which we certainly do!).” To continue reading, head on over to Stargayzing for the rest.
