@DavidArchie’s “Wait” music video deconstructed

Click pic 4 David's holiday message to all of us. *sniff*

After drowning my sorrows in vats of this, I had a hazelnut-inspired epiphany and the true meaning of David Archuleta’s “Wait” video became clear. Fasten your seatbelts for some deep thoughts … (not really):

Scene 1: David standing where Hong Kong streetcars converge
= David is desperate to someday perform in Toronto, where streetcars converge daily … then pull away as I’m running to catch one. Discuss.

Scene 2: Businesswoman drops cup, upset
= Sony Music Asia executive on hearing the news of David leaving the industry for two years. “NOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! …. Wait, wait, wait, don’t GO! DON’T GOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

Scene 3: Girl dressed in white
= Kid waiting outside David’s tour bus, distracted by hearing ZG in her head and jumping and twirling to the music… narrowly missed by oncoming traffic.

Scene 4: Shattering glass
= his career.  *snap*

Scene 5: David shaking his head from side to side
= Him thinking, “Get a grip people, I’ll be back soon…ish.”

Scene 6: Running businessman
= Movie exec with offer for pale, emo David to star in a Twilight sequel.

Scene 7: Dude in white body-checking The Archuleta.
= Studio intern rushing the script to David… pages go flying because he thinks he’s looking for David Arquette.

Scene 8: David REALLY shaking his head… with FEELING!
= “No, I am not giving this ultra-soft cashmere scarf back… I can wear it over my white shirt & tie!!!!”

Final scene: Shattered glass reassembles*
= I wish.

So, what do you guys think??? … No rush. 🙂

*Seriously though … I know things are gonna get bettah, I knoooow, things are gonna be fine. 🙂

  1. I’m wondering if the seemingly middle-aged lady in the sensible shoes represents… well… us? Dropping the coffee, self-explanitory.

    LOL TOfan I love your mind. You crack me up all the time:
    Especially loved this:
    “Scene 1: David standing where Hong Kong streetcars converge
    = David is desperate to someday perform in Toronto, where streetcars converge daily … then pull away as I’m running to catch one. Discuss.”

    Also, I just discovered that top picture along with the Christmas wishes on the OS today! Majorly loving the picture 🙂

    LOL TOfan. I am especially chuckling over #6, Twilight sequel indeed. I enjoyed the rewind at the end. Like it was just a dream. 😀

    The low key black/white/gray German expressionism cinematography with the addition of splashes of color was sublime. Very melodramatic. David looking at his hands, putting his hands over his face, wiping his brow with his hands, so exquisite.

    I enjoyed the video for its artistry. I enjoyed David’s acting. It evoked a sense of angst and longing. I have no idea what it means and I speculate that it will have as many meanings as individual viewers. More often than not, David is a lightning rod for controversy and I think this will be one of those videos that fans line up on sides in speculating over the what ifs.

    Now back to ‘hands’ – To me David has an affinity for hands in his songs (titles, lyrics and use of during performance) so I was immediately riveted to the focus on his hands and their use in the video.

    The hand is a conduit of power and down through the ages, in every culture, the use of hands to communicate and symbolize the passing, receiving or possession of energy, power, comfort, love and spirituality (and more) is repeated over and over again.

    David has very expressive hands.

      hahaha, you’re so right… this vid could’ve been subtitled “My Hands” LOLOL

      snowflake button??? where? where?

      • abanana77 says:

        Yeah, I don’t think we get it in Canada anymore. My brother was telling me about it, it made the youtube video snow and snow would build up on the bottom. But then when we went to try it, the snowflake button was gone 😦

    good good very good my first laugh for today as this has been a bad week

  5. Lorna says:

    TOfan, your timing is perfect…. I so needed this laugh!

  6. peppertara says:

    Thanks TOfan, for your wit and your brilliance in this post, lol. Thanks for the big smiles today!
    Love the Toronto reference too, haha and for drowning your sorrows in “this”, think we all have our kind of “this” right now!
    Have to say I really, really like the video. Artistic and creative and as David said…not a real storyline but more abstract and that it is! Certainly full of emotion and definitely makes you think and feel. I think he does a beautiful job in this and he certainly looks great! May have a definite sadness but it also has a real beauty in it and lots to ponder I think. Full of symbolism.

    Heidijoy, yes David does have very expressive hands and I love what you said,
    “The hand is a conduit of power and down through the ages, in every culture, the use of hands to communicate and symbolize the passing, receiving or possession of energy, power, comfort, love and spirituality (and more) is repeated over and over again.”
    Love that in the video too. David uses his hands in very healing, reflective and expressive ways.

    and TOfan….from the last post…..also love your picture of your decorated hibiscus tree with the new beautiful blooms next to that lovely ornament. Rather special I would say!
    Hope everyone had a special Christmas day.

    • Heidijoy says:

      Peppertara, Thanks for giving me credit for Kizzi’s beautiful words. I do love the hands.

      Tofan, I’m glad David is finally going to make it to Toronto!! Hope he goes through Iowa on the way! ha!

      The song reminds me of what fans started Chanting the moment of the big announcement.
      Wait……don’t go………

      Thank you mostly for the humor that is much needed right now. Blessings to all.

  7. Am knee-deep “spring-cleaning” for the Mindanao Donation drive so am a bit exhausted and I see this! Very insightful and spot on, bravo! ahahahahahaha

  8. Kizzi says:

    Wait, I forgot….Nutella???

    P.S. My granddaughter instructed me to press the Snowflake button on the video. I think SnowAngelz will love it. 😀

  9. peppertara says:

    Sorry Kizzi and Heidijoy….woops, meant to quote Kizzi and her thoughtful words. Although your words are also always quite lovely too Heidijoy as are everyone else’s. Not quite with it lately I guess, busy time, although most of it quite lovely and special.
    This post is special too and yes, I think the shattered glass will definitely reassemble. 🙂

    bahahahha TOO FUNNY TOFAN>>> excuse me, but you are the best…. ack!!!!!!

    Scene 6: Running businessman
    Movie exec with offer for pale, emo David to star in a Twilight sequel.

    Scene 8: David REALLY shaking his head… with FEELING!
    = “No, I am not giving this ultra-soft cashmere scarf back… I can wear it over my white shirt & tie!!!!”

  11. collegemom says:

    I love this interpretation!

  12. SandyBeaches says:

    TOfan, how can I ever think of the meaning as any other now?

    You don’t know but there very well may be absolute truths to your writings on this.!

    TOfan, thanks! You’re good, very good. First smile I have had since receiving a giant virus for Christmas. Ugh. I did notice David shaking his head with “feeling,” which seems to mean that he can’t figure it out either. Pretty sure this is a two-year puzzle, beginning the first six months of next year.

    Also voting with Kizzi on this: “David has very expressive hands.”

  14. Kathleen says:

    This is great…..makes so much sense to me now! 😉 Thanks for a good laugh!

  15. abanana77 says:

    Was just rereading this and it made me laugh all over again!

    My interpretation of “Scene 7” where the dude in white body checked The Archuleta represents David’s never acted-upon desire to play hockey at the professional level. Or just any level. Or marry a hockey loving girl. 😛 lol

    • TOfan says:

      “…represents David’s never acted-upon desire to play hockey at the professional level. Or just any level. Or marry a hockey loving girl.” Yes!! How did I miss that?? ROTFL 😆

    TOfan – thanks for a much needed laugh – you are the best!!!!
