Come Together Now…

When a Canon and a Nikon come together…

This is Joey Lawrence’s video, “Nikon Girl music video, The Photo Club” which is a humorous and entertaining parody that tells a story about the rivalry between Canon and Nikon camera users with a music video.

The song’s plot is a love story about a boy who uses a Canon camera and a girl who uses a Nikon. The lyrics are cleverly written, employing photography jargon and metaphors to depict their relationship and the difficulties they face because of their opposing brand loyalties.

The chorus, which includes lines like “Polish my lens girl” and “don’t leave a thumbprint on that lens girl,” is one of the song’s main hooks. These lines continue the theme of using photography-related language to create humor and advance the song’s narrative.

The video also addresses the larger issue of brand loyalty and rivalry. It satirizes the intense competition that can exist between users of different camera brands, a phenomenon that is not limited to photography but can be seen in a variety of product categories – take Apple and Microsoft, as another example…

The video is well-produced, and the catchy tune complements the amusing lyrics. The video’s visuals also add to the overall comedic effect, with the characters and scenarios presented in a lighthearted and entertaining manner.

The video has received over a million views since its release on November 22, 2009, clearly indicating its popularity and the resonance of its content with viewers, particularly photography enthusiasts.

“Nikon Girl music video, The Photo Club” is a fun and entertaining video that uses humor, catchy music, and cleverly written lyrics to create a parody of Canon and Nikon users’ rivalry. It’s a must-see for anyone interested in photography and enjoys a good laugh. The video’s content is intended to be humorous and should not be taken seriously. It contains numerous photography-related metaphors and innuendos, so young viewers should exercise caution.

… at least they’re not a Pentax.
