Despite just meeting me, I told him I already “felt a connection with him. I feel like you're my hero. I have this vision of you rescuing me from my school on a horse. I want you to make a video just like that." At this point he was all in.

CWC Music Video Holding Out For a Hero is quite possibly one of Chris's most well-known videos, an elaborate (by Chris's standards) music video created for his then-sweetheart Ivy. It was uploaded to YouTube on 26 March 2009, and was reuploaded to Chris's IBAChandler account on 29 July 2009, despite his relationship with Ivy having ended months earlier. It is a music video where he covers (or rather wails over the music track of) Bonnie Tyler's "Holding Out For a Hero".

The song showcases his many failings in music, such as his lack of preparation and poor timing. He once again uses Guitar Hero to try and prove that he has musical ability, and mimes intense solos (whammy bar included) in segments where guitars are not used in the song. To his credit, he shows in this video that he does have the ability to edit his videos to some degree, even if the entire video is presented in a grainy, ghastly, yellowed fashion due to poor treatment of his camera and the poor lighting in his bedroom.

Description

I dedicate this Music Video to Ivy. :)

Also, in addition to if anyone messes up this relationship, if anyone messes with Ivy, Period, I Swear to God and Jesus that I will cease drawing my comics and efforts to recovering the Sonichu Site. As long as y'all just Back Off, everyone's cool.
Have a good day.
Christian Weston Chandler.

Sypnosis

"Add 8 to his attack if his target is MALE"

In chronological order:

  • 0:01-0:07 - Chris doodles on some paper, then swiftly removes his glasses. Make note of how he holds the pen.
  • 0:08-0:22 - Chris does a solo on his Guitar Hero gitar with a look of dejection. Bear in mind that there is no guitar track in the actual song.
  • 0:22-0:35 - The camera zooms-up to his fingers.
  • 0:35-0:57 - Some blurry photos are shown.
  • 0:57-0:59 - Chris turns, then yells "UMPH--".
  • 1:00-1:38 - More blurry comics.
  • 1:39-1:47 - Chris says "Sonichu, cut the powers and release the prisoners!", over the song he's singing. He then yells "Shin-ye-ha-me-HA!"
  • 1:47-1:50 - More blurry comics.
  • 1:51-1:57 - "ELECTRIC-HEDGEHOG POWER!" Cue shots of his Chris-Chan Sonichu transformation on paper.

  • 2:31-2:32 - A very accurate depiction of a jet-pack.
  • 2:33-2:39 - More comics.
  • 2:40-3:05 - Chris does a "guitar solo" on his gitar, despite the fact that this song has a piano/horn solo, not a guitar solo. He then proceeds to whack the whammy bar several times before clutching to the ground. Often considered the highlight of the video. Note how the guitar strap is put on.

She's gotta be true, she's gotta be pretty and she's got to be the sweetest thing in liiiiffe, and her name be Ivvyyyyy. Dedicated to her. I love you, Ivy."
  • 4:53-5:00 - Chris looks at you creepily, then blows a kiss.
  • 5:00-5:52 - Chris recycles scenes. Notably, he whacks on the whammy bar even after the song has long since faded out.
  • Overall - The fact that Chris doesn't realize how gay this song makes him look like.
  • Overall - Chris drawing himself more slender when he actually is becoming fatter.
