Poker video: STAGED: KGB a cookie whore?

The Poker video STAGED is a short 6 minute film about a game of poker using lyrics from a range of Gym Class Heroes songs. Hence its name STAGED: To The Lyrics of Gym Class Heroes.

The video of STAGED is about an American spy in Russia during the Cold War, a supposedly beautiful dangerous Russian women (she may have trouble as a Russian Bride – although beauty is in the eye or eyes of the beholders) and a high stakes game of poker.

There is not that much poker and unless you know the lyrics of the Gym Class Heroes songs then it is just a video where that seems like watching a modern day of Shakespeare version. Where the actors speak lines you can understand but they not do flow quite.

What surprised me was they missed an opportunity to allude to a very famous scene in the poker film Rounders. As KGB was heard to say (if you listen very quietly) during the film.

I got a thing for Milano, Biscotti Italianos
And I never turn down some Oreo’s if you got them
I cant keep my hands off the cookie jar
i am still a cookie whore

It seems that a whole series of STAGED videos will be coming out. Created and posted on The Warner Sound Youtube Channel, which is a new hip thing from Warner Music. If this stunning little ditty is anything to go by subscribe to it now!

And for those who have now have a taste and can not keep their hands off the Gym Class Heroes cookie jar here are a couple of videos where the lyrics to STAGED: To The Lyrics of Gym Class Heroes poker film come from. Instead of spending ages trying to find the songs the lyrics come from you can just find them by clicking on the “Show more” button on Youtube. Just in case any of you are silly enough not to do that and waste an hour of your life.

Ba ba da da
We even got a secret handshake
And she loves the music that my band makes
I know I’m young but if I had to choose her or the sun
I’d be one nocturnal son of a gun
Ba ba da da

 

I want be faithful
But I cant keep my hands out the cookie jar.
Can’t keep my hands, my hands, my, uh, my
Can’t keep my hands, my hands my hands out the cookie jar.

My girl be setting booby traps
To catch me eating Scooby snacks

I got a thing for Milano, Biscotti Italianos
And I never turn down some Oreo’s if you got them

I cant keep my hands off the cookie jar
i am still a cookie whore
