Be a Man and Celebrate Valentine's (Video)

Pizza Drives Me Crazy from John Iaciofano on Vimeo.

 

This week contains the wildly controversial holiday: Valentine's Day.  For many men, V-Day is often coupled with some sort of negativity.  It could be owing to a paralyzing inability to make plans with your honey for fear of underwhelming her expectations.  Or maybe it's because you're just not an emotional type of guy.  Nothing wrong with that, Clint Eastwood.  Perhaps you don't even like your girlfriend/wife/significant other.  I've been there, bro.  Even still, maybe you are on the other end of the spectrum in that you are single, and Valentine's Day makes you feel lonely, depressed, and susceptible to crying at strange events, like that time over Christmas when you teared up after viewing that awesome Dick's Sporting Goods Commercial.

Fellow men, fear not.  Your lady, or lack thereof, may indeed be screwing with your ability to process rational thought, but regardless of your parallels with any of the aforementioned criteria, you indeed have the ability to enjoy this Valentine's Day in some way shape or form.  Simply find what/who it is you love, and celebrate the freaking hell out of it.  It doesn't need to be a person, per se, just something you can't live without -  like Sam Malone's relationship with Cheers.   Let me give you an example from my own life.

One thing I love in this world? Pizza.  I love it so much that I often google image pictures of melted mozzarella blobs against the brilliant red backdrop of crushed San Marzano tomatoes.  I love it so much, I've written poetry about it.  And, lately, I love it so much, I'm willing to publicly profess my love for my favorite pizzeria (DiFara's in Brooklyn - previously reviewed on the blog and truly one of the world's greatest pizzerias) by featuring it in a self made imovie-music video to the tune of, what else, "She Drives Me Crazy" by the Fine Young Cannibals.  The above video is how I (prematurely) celebrated Valentine's Day, and I could not have been happier.  And my date was Elana, so there were no awkward good-byes, or fretting about eating my six slices to her two (true story). 

So, Happy Valentine's Day, everybody.  Go out and give that special someone or something your emotional "all" - however "crazy" it may be.

You had me at "1980's" and "Pizza"

I love everything about this. Highlights include the riding of pizza peels (who is your genius choreographer?) and any shot with Dom. Amazing.
