We were watching a documentary on the Biography channel today when we couldn't help but make fun of the overly dramatic music used to accentuate important moments in the subject's life. You know, the huge DUN-DUN! that signifies DRAMA or SHOCK! For example:
"Things began to change for Brian. As he became more successful his drinking and drug use spiraled out of control." DUN-DUN!
To be honest, the seriousness and solemnity of the piece we were watching was ruined by the shoddy muso and his DUN-DUN! machine. Eventually one begins to delve into mockery instead of paying attention ....
"Sebastian went into the bathroom to take a dump. It was only after that he realised there was no toilet paper to wipe his arse with." DUN-DUN! "So he sat there, on the toilet, for days."
"Karen's bikini line was out of control. Stepping into the shower, Karen was all set to rock that thatch when she discovered her boyfriend had used her last razor to shave his balls." DUN-DUN!
"Bobby thought his chick drought was about to break. Meeting an attractive blonde at a local bar he brought her home to his two-bedroom condo. As things started to get hot and heavy, Bobby soon discovered something shocking: the chick had a cock." DUN-DUN!
I have a whole heap of those; really, I could go on for hours.
