Here’s the video for rising country star Hayes Carll that I did in conjunction with David Willis (of Adult Swim’s ‘Aqua Team Hunger Force’ infamy). It was a fast and woolly shoot and everyone had a great time. Big thanks go to Brett Gelman (Adult Swim’s Eagleheart, Funny Or Die) and Sarah Blackman, our liberal and conservative, respectively. During the filming we had them verbally fighting at the bar – the insults they were throwing at each other were no holds barred and hilarious. The live segments with Hayes Carll and Ann Hearst were filmed in North Carolina during a soundcheck and the end segment with James Carville and Mary Matalin – who graciously allowed us into their home for the afternoon – was filmed in New Orleans.
It debuted on Don Imus’s show of all places and just got a mention on Rolling Stone.com. Click to experience.
Oh look, HUFFPO!
