Gather near, and taste this hot spittle from the diseased mouth of Rock TV!
Some explanation is required on this one.
This video was written and shot a year ago, and it became clear to us about midway through the production process that it wasn’t coming together very well. I remember feeling not especially enthusiastic about it during the shoots, and when the editors sat down and watched the footage, we made the call to shut it down and move on (to what became the Skeletor Goes to Burger King project). The video was banished to Rock TV purgatory.
In December, while the ministry was on hiatus, the leadership team decided to go back to the footage to see if anything could be salvaged. The answer, as you can see, is ‘barely’.
At that point, Kevin and I worked together to come up with the theme song, which is probably my favorite bit in the video now. Kevin did a great job of belting it out in cheesy fashion. (Incidentally, an alternate version of the theme song included the line “He’s a bundle of joy with a curious thrill / Reads The New Yorker and peruses George Will”).
In cutting the video in half, we sacrificed any sense of coherence or logic that the video once had, but I doubt that makes much difference in the end.
Enjoy (if possible). The ministry will be back with a new video by late February!
