City Paper is not for tourists
Some questions spring to mind after watching this grainy lip dub to about half of fun.’s “We Are Young,” performed by various Post Web people to celebrate editor Marcus Brauchli‘s 51st birthday (title: “YOU are young).
- Why were we finally granted a reprieve from Gotye‘s “Somebody I Used to Know,” only to have it be immediately replaced by another drone-y sing-song?
- How much cajoling did it take to get that clearly uncomfortable woman in the center to do the video?
- Has Post president Steve Hill‘s cost-cutting left the Post wallpapering its offices with old issues?
- And most importantly: Why won’t Brauchli’s underlings even commit to lip-syncing a full song for him?
