In Their Words: "I am so proud to let my freak flag fly in this video from my homies at Everything Is Terrible. Coming from a community of punks, queers, puppeteers, and activists, I've never felt totally comfortable in the folk/country/Americana realm. Folks have been really welcoming, though, and while some of the audiences -- and other musicians for that matter -- might have more traditional views and lifestyles, I've met a lot of people who are willing to consider and question and have conversations. As artists, we can't be afraid to challenge people right now; it's more important than ever.

The video was directed by Commodore Gilgamesh, the creator of Everything Is Terrible! Gilgamesh is also the father of the largest Jerry Maguire VHS collection on earth." -- Al Scorch
