"When you get those rare moments of clarity, those flashes when the universe makes sense, you try desperately to hold on to them. They are the life boats for the darker times, when the vastness of it all, the incomprehensible nature of life is completely illusive. So the question becomes, or should have been all a long... What would you do if you knew you only had one day, or one week, or one month to live. What life boat would you grab on to? What secret would you tell? What band would you see? What person would you declare your love to? What wish would you fulfill? What exotic locale would you fly to for coffee? What book would you write?"

I Assure You This is True

Falling in love, is just like being on PROzac. You smile for absolutely no reason, all the time. You are in a good mood, all the time. You suddenly feel like skipping and holding doors open for the elderly  and giving people money that need it and being extra  generous and happy  and spreading joy to everyone around you. For absolutely no prompt- all the sudden you feel like dancing and smiling like a lunatic while walking down the sidewalk. Kind of just like this :

When you think about it, this video could just as easily be an ad for any antidepressant. But its not. Its falling in love. And they got it down perfectly.

Hahaha yes, and they are also know as the "I just got laid" song/video =P But I agree - it's perfect!

Oh Jules I love you for posting this! Fantastic scene!

And following on from what Jessica said (Hi Jessica!), this is definitely the 'I just got laid' song. So much so that, in our house, my housemate and I always play this song out loud the morning after we slept with someone.

But we are guys. Dirty, disgusting guys. We talk about sex and women and football and stuff ;)

LOL BOTH of you are totally tainting this adorable video!! Even if he DID just get laid before the song/dance, it still does not mean its the national laid song, lol. He's happy because he's totally in loveeeee.

Hi Luke! :) I always forget to look back at comments and Julie told me you said hi, so here I am! Hi! That's hilarious though, I love that you guys do that. Honestly, Julie, I can't think of anything else when I hear that song ;)
