Funny Stuff ... Rod Stewart is not a Sailor after all...

Did you guys know that Rod Stewart actually has a music video for his song "Sailing?"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iJeUqrnP1HA

I started watching it and then started laughing about half way through when it became quite aparant that this video was filmed on a big power boat

What's funnier is that it seems like the director put a little effort into disguising this fact by having sailboats in the background, and avoiding showing any parts of the boat except the pulpit, lol.

Doesn't that wake look a little suspicious for a sail boat? And the huge bow? Come on Rod, this is cheap!

Oh well, at least he has the sailor outfit and mullet to lend it authenticity.

Hey you have to admit it is OK, since in English, even if a power boat leaves the harbour. IT IS SAILING.......so he's safe....he is sailing

In Portuguese sailing is only if the boat moves powered by the wind. If you go in a power boat you are "boat motoring" roughly translated....we don't get confused here....

While it could be a really big cat, I seriously doubt it... A big cat, like Safari, a Gunboat 62, could put out a wake like that... (go to the safari website and click on the video page if you want to see a funny video... )

It would have been more difficult to film the video on a sailboat...given that any monohull would probably be heeled over 15-20˚ or so. Also, given the age of the video...they may have needed AC power, which is usually available on most powerboats, but not so much on sailboats at that time, to power the sound and video equipment...

I like the Wikipedia definition of sailing.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I would guess that video to be at least 30 -35 years old - looks so archaic and dated . . . but Rod still has a mullet today.

1975 was the date of that video production, according to this source:

TrueBlue-

I stand corrected... It looks like it was one of the first to air on MTV back in 1981... and was shot in 1975 according to this wikipedia entry.

He sure was awkward looking in that clip. Musicvideos were a new form of promotional media back then, with a steep learning curve. I suppose similar to when silent movies went to sound.
