Music Video Thursday: "Shine On Me"

Ladies and gentlemen, this is Chris Dane Owens, an independent musician from Los Angeles who produced what is possibly one of the most awesome and/or cheesy (I'm still trying to decide) music videos of all time, complete with fireworks, explosions, dragons, a crocodile, sword fighting, magic, ghosts, tall ships, and a mustache reminiscent of Cary Elwes in The Princess Bride. View at your own risk, lest the levels of awe and/or cheese overwhelm you:

Apparently this video went viral back in December, but obviously I wasn't paying attention and didn't see this until Jeff Atwood posted a link to it on Twitter yesterday. Who does a guy have to know to stay in the loop with all this viral stuff anyhow?

Oh, and Mr. Owens is planning this as the first of a trilogy - some stills from the next video are available for your perusal. Looks like more of the same - whether that's a good thing or a bad thing is for you to decide.
