Ultra Nate / Automatic

Just saw this video on Logo's "The Click List".

Outside of saying that this version of the song is more fun to me than the Pointer Sisters' version, and that I've always liked Ultra Nate
and her recordings for their danceability even though they can sometimes be very repetitive, and I think her sometimes powerful voice could be better showcased in other genres of music, I think I'm speechless.

I love the video. Her costumes and makeup are awesome. The guys are hot. Camera angles and editing is provocative. But was the living blow-up doll with no nose and drippy "mascara tears" really necessary? It's creepy. It kind of reminds me of that drag queen/transvestite/transsexual with the giant, over-collagen-injected lips, Amanda LePore.
