Since a lot of us RA fans seem to be Outlander fans too, I didn’t think you’d mind if I went “off topic” a bit and featured an Outlander themed Fanvid Friday. As someone who appreciates the creative nuances that some vidders place in their fanvids, I could not pass this one up!
“Uptown Funk” by E. Jamie
(Warning: several instances of nudity appear)
Yes, it’s that “Uptown Funk” by Bruno Mars. And that’s one of the reasons I like this vid so much, because it’s such an unexpected song choice for 18th century Scotland! That funky beat starts and you wonder what am I getting myself into? Here are some of my favorite parts:
-the hand slaps that go along with the music in the beginning. I didn’t realize there was so much touching in Outlander…
-Jamie’s quick finger kiss after the lyric “kiss myself, so pretty”
-Geillis’ “hot damn!” LOL!
-Jamie’s slightly arrogant smirk after “say my name”
-that whole first set of “Hallelujah”s. Brilliant!
–“fill my cup, put some liquor in it”. the sheer amount of choices that could have been used for this part…
-the women waulking wool in time with the music
-Claire’s hand sways
*another Outlander fanvid by E.Jamie that I like is “Bohemian Rhapsody” . again, a song that you wouldn’t expect, but she uses the music and lyrics to her advantage.
