It’s kind of sad that Billy Joel divorced from the woman he wrote “Just the way you are” about. It’s probably among the most mushiest and melodramatic love songs of all time. And the real life situation not working out is just tragic.
This situation on the other hand, is just unintentionally hilarious! At the time this video was made, it was cutesy funny. Today, with the divorce of NBA superstar Tony Parker and actress Eva Longoria in the works, this music video is pure schadenfreude!
This remake of Grease’s “Summer Lovin” stars Parker, Longoria, the Spurs mascot Coyote, and yes Erin Barry, the “other woman” in the sexting saga. It was originally made in 2009 to aid the Spurs marketing efforts.
