My New Favorite Nerd Song: “Up, Up, Down, Down” Music Video

I know this will be disorienting to some of you, but: I only have nice, non-smarmy things to say about this song and music video for “Up, Up, Down, Down” from nerd rock band Kirby Krackle.*

This jaunty tribute to the old-school Konami code has everything I could want in a song about a nerd-crush: a great tune, clever lyrics, a catchy refrain, and a delightfully-out-of-nowhere twisted ending.

Anyway, I’ll stop exhausting you with adjectives so you can enjoy for yourself:

It’s almost insulting to me this only has ~11,000 views on YouTube.

* You might remember Kirby Krackle from their considerably-less-upbeat song about sad Wolverine.

    I much prefer 30 lives. Possible because I heard it first…and it’s catchy…and I’m possibly insane.
