Now that she’s making headlines again thanks to her Playboy cover, a music video has surfaced with Jenny McCarthy looking far less elegant.
Comedian and recording artist Bill Zucker has created a little YouTube gem, a music video for his original song “Half the Man.” In the video, Jenny tries out acting with clothes on for a change, playing the role of an estranged lover.
“I am so happy with how the song and video have been received by fans and critics alike,” Zucker told Mesh Press. “People just love seeing Jenny McCarthy on screen and she totally makes the words to my song come to life.”
The irony of this statement is just sad…
This is one of those “so bad, it’s good” videos generated into existence with the perfect combination of lack of talent and trying too hard.
The song itself wouldn’t be so gut-wrenching if it weren’t paired with the visuals of an eighth grader’s iMovie project. The video appears to be shot on a cell phone. The editing is heavy-handed. And Jenny… Jenny, Jenny, Jenny…
From her composited rearview mirror shot next to Billy’s singing head, to her crying on the beach, its just bad.
The turmoil that is the will they/won’t they get back together through line of the video is resolved when Jenny texts Billy “I’m sorry! Let’s make up!” Bill responds with a triumphant fist-pump.
