Phil Collins Parody FAIL

We here at “One More Knight” are well aware that we’re not the only Phil Collins-inspired fare on the world wide web. We often find it comforting to meet our fellow Internet brethren dedicated to preaching the greatness of PC to fans the world over.  While we find most other URL’s that champion the accomplishments of our favorite drummer/pop legend to be rather invigorating, we do occasionally come across a few samples that exhibit somewhat questionable taste in their Phil-osophy.

One such example we found is the following video (we would call it a humor video but it didn’t bring forth any laughter from our guttural region) in which a character from the popular video game “Halo 4” alters the lyrics to some of Phil’s most popular tunes to sing of his love of assassinations.

Don’t get us wrong, we love the occasional play on words or clever replacement of a lyric to induce laughter.  Lord knows we regularly change the lyrics to Huey Lewis’ “Heart of Rock ‘n’ Roll ” to refer to our genitalia, but the whole “One More Snipe” thing is not only violent, it also wreaks of a lack of creativity. And if there’s one thing that offends us more than unnecessary violence, its a lack of creativity.

Phil Collins didn’t get to deserve a position of nobility by partaking in violent practices and displaying an obvious lack of artistic merit.  He certainly didn’t get there by making an easy joke.

Surely, that’s what the folks behind “Halo 4” intended all along.  They thought they’d have some Master Chief character singing Phil Collins songs  and everyone would laugh, because gun-toting warrior-types don’t listen to Phil Collins.  You know what we think? We think Phil Collins is music for anyone who has the balls to listen to Phil Collins and not be judged for it.  Phil sings about everything from taboo political topics to the universal magic that comes with feeling a groovy kind of love.  If some nerds hiding behind pixel-ated weapons want to make fun of that, then so be it, but it only goes to show how insecure they are in their manhood and how horrible they are at humor.  And there’s nothing valiant or knightly about that. We’re sure Phil would agree.
