How did I erase from my mind so completely the memory that this video contained a guy swinging a caber at the camera?

Also, the rhythm guitarist looks worryingly like Silent Bob's Scottish uncle.

You know this stuff better than I do. I was thinking, "No, dude, that's not how you use a battering ram...."

Oh time out, hold the phone, flag on the play, dude!

You're admitting in this post that Slade did this song before Great Big Sea, am I right? Because I turn your attention to this post of mine where you in fact claim the exact opposite!

I call shenanigans on you, my dear turkle! You've been telling porkies, either here now, or there then. Ha! You probably thought I had forgotten, you probably thought I wouldn't notice, but nothing escapes me! Nothing eludes my eagle eye and razor-sharpoh I don't want to do this anymore I'm bored.

Ah, but what you fail to realize, me ducky old chum, is that Slade is actually a time-traveling rock band! Just like in that old Saturday morning cartoon show, y'know, the one that was on right after "The Adventures of Armadilloman and I'mhopingtherewasacartoonshowaboutatimetravelingrockbandtheremusthavebeen Man". Inspired by the spirited energy and popular success of Great Big Sea's "Run Runaway", they hopped into their machine, the I'dneverheardofSladesoImistakenlyassumedtheycamealonglater-o-tron, and tesseracted back two decades to perform the song first and put their own names on the writing credits. I'm sure you'll agree it's quite a delightfully fiendish plan!

Note that KT has also borrowed info from My own LJ about Slade and this very same song.

Of course with KT not being alive when this song came out. ( I don't think he was at least) I can understand a newer band playing this and him giving them credit for the song's creation.
