This has got to be one of the most brilliant videos I've ever seen. It's a mash up of one of my favorite movies- Mommie Dearest- and a song that I really like quite a lot- Mama Mia by ABBA. 

I was first introduced to Mommie Dearest about three years ago when my uncle gave me a copy for Christmas. It instantly became one of my favorite movies. And you know what? I think it's actually a pretty well-made film. Yeah, there are some parts that go a little overboard, but for the most part, I don't think it's as bad as it's been made out to be. And I think for the most part, Faye Dunaway did an amazing job as Joan Crawford. Again, she has her moments of going over the top, and she does get a little cross-eyed when she yells, but all in all, I don't think it's a performance she should be ashamed of. I think she should lighten up and accept the movie for what it is. 

See what I mean about the slight cross-eyes?

 Anyway, back to the video. I think it's hilarious and totally brilliant. The editing and cutting syncs perfectly with the music and it's totally entertaining, fan of Mommie Dearest and/or ABBA or not.
