We shot this sometime in April 2017 and it was a tough one right from the start. I woke up sick - 103 degree fever and the chills - and barely any energy to talk let alone drive an hour to Jersey where we were planning to shoot. You know that kind of sick where you could care less about your coffee because it tastes like shit? I look like I was dragged straight from a coffin onto set, lol!
We hauled all the gear up to the third floor of the warehouse we were shooting in, and started setting up. Bobby and Mikey supplied the whiskey, while JJ brought a focused intensity which, along with a little Jameson, helped to perk me up a bit. Randy brought everything except his throne, which we later realized was still chilling at the studio 100 miles away back home. Oh well….off to find a Sam Ash we went, and $100 later, Randy had his new seat. We weren’t too far from one because anyone who knows Jersey, knows how fucked it is driving locally, even with Nav! Luckily we had the magical and talented Eric DiCarlo filming and directing, so he kept everyone in check and kept everything moving along nicely.
It was a nutty day, nonetheless, we feel it was a success as the energy of the song and it’s message were conveyed through the performance. We’re proud of this one and hope you enjoy it too!
