You know the only thing that’s worse than a white person? An upper middle class white person who’s in love…and an amateur singer. There’s nothing wrong with grand gestures to show affection for your partner — Mr. Ufford and I wrote an entire sickly post on it — but there is something massively heinous in recording a four-and-a-half minute song called “I Just Want to Ride Bikes with YOU,” and then posting it to YouTube.
There are so many things to hate: her voice, the unflattering photos of her husband-to-be (OK, those are actually pretty great), the mentions of flower arrangements and the Sunday New York Times, “macchiatos in the hood,” and about a thousand other choices. But most of all, hate love itself, for allowing something like this to happen.
Here’s the video’s description:
This surprise wedding music video was created for my husband Todd Evan Krieger in Venice Beach, California and unveiled for him at our wedding reception in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
Other shots shown are in Malibu, Laguna Beach, Tahoe, Ixtapa, Burning Man, San Francisco, Santa Monica, Topanga Canyon, Taos, Vancouver, Peru, and the Galapagos Islands.
I’d like to give a major shout out to Panos Stoumpos whom hit the pavement with me capturing shots; he’s a creative rock star. Steve McCormick is super talented and was uber helpful in the studio when recording, and John David Heeg buttoned everything up with his rad editing skills.
Hats off to our beautiful cat Balka…and of course my amazing husband Todd whose love inspired this video!!! Everything’s okay-o when I’m with Tadeo.
Unfortunately, the couple made the original video private (think their password is “princetongrad” or “lacrosselover”?), hence the “bootleg” version you’ve watched and hated above. And here’s her website:
