30 Rock's 'Kenneth' in Mariah Carey's new video - VIDEO

jack mcbrayer; mariah careyMariah Carey totally digs 30 Rock, especially the Kenneth the Page character. She digs him so much, that he stars in her new music video, called "Touch My Body". In it, the actor Jack McBrayer seems to channel Louis Skolnick from Revenge of the Nerds. He shows up at the Carey mansion to fix a computer and then he goes off into La La Land, thinking about his dream date with Mariah Carey. Activities include pillow fights, laser tag, and frisbee.

Maybe I'm grumpy today or something because I didn't find it all that funny. It was quaint, really. The Nerd envisions himself with Mariah Carey doing all her sexy poses and wearing tight/short dresses, like in all her videos. I think the problem is that Mariah Carey didn't do anything different. She shook her booty while goofy things happened around her-- like Jack McBrayer wearing a viking hat during a pillow fight. While I liked the Fiona Apple and Kanye West videos with Zach Galifianakis, I think this one is over-the-top and tries too hard to be funny. The video is directed by Brett Ratner.

Check it out, the video is after the jump:

I thought it was cute.

It wasn't trying to be funny, but it was fun. It was one of those videos that was simple and didn't take itself too seriously. I didn't have any problems with it when I saw it last week. MC is looking slim.

1) the beginning just looks like a bad porno, with the repair man coming to the door and the woman inexplicably answers the door in underwear and a robe

2) the whole computer-geek with think glasses and a cracky voice is kind of played out, isn't it?

(although I did skip to the end and i'm glad she gave a shout-out to 802.11n ;) )

It was cute. I think Kenny's presence shows Mariah's sense of humor. At the same time, I didn't need the gratuitous lingerie/schoolgirl midriff shots -
