CWC Music Video Holding Out For a Hero
|“||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.
|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.

- 0:01-0:07 - Chris doodles on some paper, then swiftly removes his glasses. Make note of how he holds the pen.

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 long after the song has since faded out.
