1OVE (2014) – ‘A Romantic Comedy For Pop Music Nerds’

1OVE is a fun internet comedy short from GDB Films; written by G. Daniel Bailey & directed by Reynaldo Rodriguez.

The ensemble cast includes G. Daniel Bailey, Laura TenZijthoff. Keith C. Wade (Burn Notice, Graceland) and Frank Francisco (Univision’s Va Por Ti).

The concept here is ‘a romantic comedy for pop music nerds‘. This is achieved through the dialogue which is mostly referencing or borrowed from well known song lyrics (both recent and classic). With everything from Rihanna to The Who there is something for everyone here.



We see male protagonist Johnny (Bailey) narrate the tale of his conquest Molly (TenZijthoff) to his friends at a bar while we see flashback cutaways. The production value here is reasonable for a YouTube video but nothing exceptional; not that it particularly matters for this kind of comedy.

This is a fun, cheesy Internet video concept that is well executed and perfect for YouTube but does not have much merit beyond this.

Pop music is a genre of popular music that originated in its modern form in the United States and United Kingdom during the mid-1950s.  The terms “popular music” and “pop music” are often used interchangeably, although the former describes all music that is popular and includes many different styles. “Pop” and “rock” were roughly synonymous terms until the late 1960s, when they became increasingly differentiated from each other.

Although much of the music that appears on record charts is seen as pop music, the genre is distinguished from chart music. Pop music is eclectic, and often borrows elements from other styles such as urbandancerockLatin, and country; nonetheless, there are core elements that define pop music. Identifying factors include generally short to medium-length songs written in a basic format (often the verse-chorus structure), as well as common use of repeated choruses, melodic tunes, and hooks.
