Cheyenne Jackson makes a music video

Is Alan Cumming the guy at the end seen from the back?

When I was growing up, a video like that would have been unimaginable... At least, there was no way I could have ever encountered or seen it as a confused and lonely gay kid.
It would have been helpful, I suppose (role models and all that), but I'm also pretty sure I would have thought it sucked... which might actually have been more confusing.

He really is a talented guy.

He first became famous by singing and dancing on Broadway long before he tried to make the switch into "traditonal" acting.

That video couldn't be gayer if Cheyenne ended up getting gang-fucked in a sling by all the guys he's dancing with.

Matt Cavanaugh had a clause in his contract that this video could not be released until one year after Arthur Laurents' death

The Broadway-style dance numbers were much gayer than the male love interests.

OP / R6, you write that like it's a bad thing.
I love it. Cheyenne's voice is soft, but he looks just tough enough and has sexy moves.
I'm buying the album.

I didn't know either, until I saw him perform, "Oh, what a beautiful morning" on the Today Show...I was very impressed with his singing voice.

The video just doesn't go with the song. You don't see ass-shaking construction workers with a standard pop song. With disco or techno yeah but this no.

A music video with two good looking guys as love interests would actually have the potential for a lot of crossover appeal - women are obsessed with slash these days - but it can't have this jazz hands/village people aesthetic.
I also would have paired him with a blond instead of another brunette.

I like both him and the song A LOT.
But the video itself (with that cheesy choreography! was it by Ann Reinking in full "We Got Annie" mode?) is terrible.

And just to be clear: I applaud the explicit homoeroticism of the video; what I object to is the wholesome cheesiness of it, which is such a dick-wilter.
It's like someone composed a very catchy, sexy, growly song for Chyenne Jackson, and then they decided to ruin it by choreographing it as if it were a perky production number for GLEE.

This video will be widely mocked in times to come, just like we now mock the first-ever videos from the 80s.
But, BUT! This is the first video I've seen with overt man-on-man love, and do you know how ecstatic that makes me? I like Cheyenne's voice. I don't like the song so much and the video really sucks ass. But the fact that it was made is terrific!!!
|by Anonymous||reply 26||12/18/2012|
Totally agree with r26. COOL that this is about gay romance/love or whatever but the video is bizarrely off kilter with the song. It will be mocked, for sure, but is a grand step in the right direction.

Is that really Matt Cavenaugh as the love interest?

That's not Alan at the end. It's one of the dancers in the background in the final dance scene.
Well, I love him, but this video should be one of Carly Simon's...it's that cheesey. And the song is meh.
I mean, basically it's a dance version of his daily tricking experiences. We get it, Cheyenne. But it doesn't work with the song at all. He's rejecting the guy through the whole video, 'tricking' with other guys, then is disappointed to see him with someone else at the end. Awful.

He's one of those men whose extremely strong features make him look very handsome from a distance but up close on the screen he looks scary. He should stick to the Broadway stage like Raul Esparza (who also has one of those faces) mostly does--Peter Gallagher (ditto) should have done the same thing.

"What do you think of this music video?
It's by Cheyenne Jackson, and I found there to be something slightly wrong with the audio quality but as I watched it I found myself enjoying it. It has a good sense of humor. And it's nice to see a gay version of this sort of music video.
And it doesn't hurt that there are some hot guys in the video."
