Klingon Kiss Me Karaoke

Another project for Improvised Star Trek, we recently produced a music video of a Klingon translation of Sixpence None the Richer’s 90s Pop hit: Kiss me. Inspired by an episode of Improvised Star Trek, translated by the Klingon Christmas Carol, and performed with perfection by Jen Usellis, the video became a minor viral hit, garnering over 100,00 views in the first two weeks an getting featured on a wide range of sites including, but not limited to, Buzzfeed, MTV Geek, Conan O’Brien, and Gizmodo(France).

Chicago Politics

Sadly, Chicago Alderman Ed Bus failed to garner the necessary votes to force Rahm Emanuel into a run-off, ending his Very Clever endorsed bid for Chicago Mayor.

Very Clever is proud of our contribution to Alderman Bus’ candidacy, and all Ed Bus videos can be seen at 53rdward.com and Schadenfreude.net.
