The Richter Scales Do Tech Parody of “You’ve Got to Have Hart”

Remember The Richter Scales and their controversial “Here Comes Another Bubble?” Common- a photographer named Lane Hartwell sued, and they had to pull the video down? I was furious and held a contest for those who could do the best mosh-up of Hartwell’s photos?

Courtesy of TechCrunch, here are The Richter Scales at TechCrunch’s “The Crunchies” performing their latest song (see article).

The song, a satire of “You’ve Got to Have Hart,” starts at 1:04. The Chumby gag is the best. I loved the little dig at Chumby because I was nuts about the device and mine is now collecting dust along with the camera/monitor that allows people to webcam via a phone line (circa 1998). 

I will say I was disappointed to not see the entire group in a chorus line (just one guy). I had a drama teacher that said chorus lines by guys almost always gets laughter and a standing ovation. 

Oh- and the references to Hart (not heart) were intentional pokes at Hartwell by me.

  1. You know, my cat is sitting on my desk staring at the computer screen, and I can actually get her to follow the cursor around the screen. It’s hilarious.

    Yup, she just did it again.

    And again.

    I gave Richter Scale #2 spot last year [click]

    They covered their asses double this time round used CC and gave everyone more than enough props. I didn’t realize there were so many in the band though

    It’s like there’s this whole other world of people doing things behind your back, isn’t it Marilyn? I feel the same way about people with jobs.

    Sing it, x.

    We spend 90% of our time practicing?
    er, sorry, I’m getting out of that crowd (though, not in time for my college application, so I still have that reason as to why my grades suck), so it would be they, not we.

  6. I actually kind of expected you to go dark for a few weeks, Kevin. Boy, was I wrong.

    Anyway, good to see you still entertaining us, your loyal entourage. (Would “retinue” be better in this context?)
