Worst Music Video Ever of the Week: America We Stand As One

September 4, 2009

This is the musical debut of Dennis Madalone, who was a stunt coordinator on three Star Trek series: TNG, DS9 and Voyager. Yeah! Voyager had stunts. You just forgot.

After Star Trek wrapped, Dennis turned to music, but he didn’t forget his roots. This video, for his song America: We Stand As One, was directed by Rob Bowman (Star Trek, X-Files, Elektra …) This is sound logic. “Rob? It’s Dennis. You remember that time I taught Frakes how to dive and roll with a phaser in his hand? Yeah? Okay, now I need you to direct my music video.”

The message in the song (and video) is admirable. The execution is excruciatingly bad.

This video makes me proud to be an American. Oh, wait.

  1. More brain hurt!! He looks like Geddy Lee’s and Steve Perry’s love child, and sounds like a Kids in the Hall sketch. Why do you keep doing this to us?!!!

  2. Weird — I had originally written that he looked like the love child of Steve Perry and Alice Cooper, but I took that out, because I didn’t want to make fun of his appearance. That’s just cruel.
