Matchbox Twenty shows they can poke fun at themselves big-time in their latest project: a collaboration with the comedy website FunnyorDie. Together, they've produced a hilarious video called Smooth: The TV Show.
The video imagines a cop show like CSI, based on singer Rob Thomas' Grammy-winning hit "Smooth." It stars Rob as "Detective Thomas Smooth," and all the dialogue in the show is made up of lyrics from the song.
In one scene from the faux "show," Rob, as Detective Smooth, is talking to a crying woman. When she sobs, "This life ain't good enough," he replies, "I would give my world to lift you up. I would change my world to better suit your mood. Y'know why? Because you're...so smooth."
The video also features Matchbox Twenty members Paul Doucette and Kyle Cook: they diss the show, while Rob thinks they're happy about it. And in one scene, Rob plays two roles: Detective Smooth, tied to a chair and being held at gunpoint, and the villain with the gun, "Tomas Suave" -- that's "Thomas Smooth" in Spanish.
The funniest part of the video is the end, when Rob, as Detective Smooth, tells the camera, "I live my life by three rules: Give me your heart. Make it real. Let's forget about it."
