Why the Dungeons and Dragons get up?

You know I love metal, I mean really love it. It's by far my favorite form of music.
It's badass music. It helps me through races. It pumps me up when I need it. It's helped me work out a lot of frustration with the kids. I KNOW I run faster and lift harder when I listen to it.
But, man, what's with those videos?
I mean, really guys? Why MUST so many of you wear those Medieval outfits and pretend you're in the winter holding off the Vikings or whatever? I mean, come on. I get that your music is all tough and all that but to me, those outfits don't exactly say "tough" to me. "Gay" really is the word that comes to mind.
Sure, I can appreciate a good sword fight like the next guy. "Kill Bill?" Loved it.
But I can't help but think about Dungeons and Dragons and those strange Renaissance festivals where people eat turkey legs and dress up like maidens or queens and kings or whores and there's always a guy named puke or snot who acts like he wants all his teeth knocked out by an angry punch.
If you are one of those people, hey, I don't mean to offend you. They're kinda cool. But I also can't help but giggle when I see that.
And I'm not supposed to giggle when I'm hearing a metal song, no?

I believe "no giggling" is clearly a tenet of being a true metal head. The fake Viking battle is clearly a little over the top.
