I've never heard of this group before. This is some funny stuff.
So are you a part of the act or were you just involved in the music videos?
Either way, funny act and your production is slick.
This year is the group's 20th anniversary. There are two feature films about them (a concert film titled "I Wanna Be a Republican" (trailer) and a documentary titled "Almost Infamous").

I'm not a singer. I became familiar with the group because an actor who appears in three of my short films once performed with "Trixie" of the Kinseys, so we got to know each other that way. I went to help them shoot "Bedroom Ants" and ended up being their regular video director.

Thanks for the compliment about the production. I've learned to be a very fast filmmaker from having worked in five 48 Hour Film Project contests and from doing these videos, most of which are shot in one day. Doing stuff like that teaches you how to think on your feet. I generally err on the side of getting the best performances and a lot of coverage over technical perfection and complex camera work, because the more choices you have in editing the better.
