Gender Reversal

Introduction: A Video Critic's Review

'Guys who try to lick their elbows on webcam' is a postmodern video for the cyber era. It features a seminal eighties europop soundtrack by Sabrina, and its slighty seedy and somewhat unnerving gallery of webcam chatters (served under a decorum of strawberry icing) navigates the undertows of cyber subculture.
At first, the video appears harmless enough: 22 men, of various ages, ethnicities, and backgrounds, are seen to be ridiculing themselves on webcam.
While this might raise a laugh or two, the sexual subtext is essentially bleak: the internet distorts human relationships to a point where self-consciousness vanishes in the face of the most primal urges.
'Guys who try to lick their elbows on webcam' raises issues of privacy, image ownership and voyeurism. Its captivating imagery make it utterly compelling but uncomfortable viewing.

    i could for a few minutes, when i dislocated my shoulder! i was being an idiot and was playin on my roof and i fell off, landed on my arm and it just cracked! didnt break it, just popped it out of the joint. i immediately screemed, but for some reason it didnt hurt much, then i was thinkin "maybe i could lick my elbow now!" and so i did! it was weird, but then i went to the hospital and they fixed it, that was the only part that hurt!

    I was playing baseball, when a wild pitch hit right at the joint. You could hear the pop. IT hurt for like a week, and all I got was a sling. It re-dislocates sometimes which sucks.
