Not to be portentous, but this video is a very important addition to the Museum. A booming baritone in a documentary would intone “Ladies and Gentlemen, THIS is kitsch.” The passion of this video exceeds that of the Christ; the ambition and zeal could scale Everest, but the talent could not be evinced by the most sensitive of Sonars. When I played this video, the Velveeta in my fridge melted; the Elvis clocks stopped; and the velvet paintings of sad-eyed children beamed. I know that Allee presents a wedge of Camembert to the makers or distributors of classic kitsch, but this video may require a wheel of Brie. To paraphrase the line from “Jaws”: You’re gonna need a bigger cheese.

What Allee has to say about this:
I don’t have enough to say about this video… Maria Dangell herself posted this video on my Facebook page a few days ago and I was stunned into silence, unable to comment (for many reasons). The line is so long to get to the cheese buffet on this one it deserves its own wing in the Museum. Thank you, Maria Dangell (and James, of course), for kitsch-starting my day and many more to come.
