A Casual Tuesday...

So I was sitting at the Oyster Bar the other night when the Jack Johnson song that I've posted below began blaring through the restaurant's stereo speakers. I turned to Christie and immediately began to explain a string of videos that popped in my head that made the song seem somewhat sentimental to me. I received a blank stare from her in return. I promised her I would later explain the hilarity behind the song. So, here it is:

Several months ago (before I ever saw the video I posted below) I saw this video (here) advertising JJ Casuals footwear. Shoes that look like feet. The perfect shoes for hippies...

I thought the SNL shoe spoof was funny, but didn't think much of it until I came across this Pirates Look at 40 video (here) with Dave Matthews and Jack Johnson at the Kokua Festival. Dave is my favorite (!!)

Snicker-doodle what? I had to investigate more; therefore I finally came across this video (here). The Mellow Shoe with your host, super mellow singer songwriter Jack Johnson. Gross negligence.

It wasn't until about another month later that I finally saw the music video I've posted below. It all suddenly clicked. Jack is a musical genius. He can take any situation and turn it into a hit. I love, love, love it!

I hope your Tuesday is full of smiles. Enjoy!
