Excerpt from MetalUnderground.com
This week a look at three new videos, first, Beggars & Thieves teaches us gun safety, and then Hart celebrates the eighties with an ultimate tribute. Finally, it’s the Killer Klowns sending us on our way with a beat-your-head its Friday tune.
Reunited New York rockers Beggars & Thieves have released a video for the song "Innocence", the second single from their latest album 'We Are The Brokenhearted.”
We begin alone in the desert with the band wearing leather jackets and a lot of flirtatious (SEE: voluptuous) girls in ripped jeans having fun. Everyone is drinking beer which makes the scene SUPER fun! Now the guns appear. Girls and Guns? If there wasn’t drinking this would (what I assume to) be a Ted Nugent wet dream. Guns are coming out and going into cars. What are they going to shoot? I’m guessing beer cans…shooting aluminum cans is as American as baseball and apple pie. Then something weird happens, the Modello beer cans are thrown to the side and six packs of Budweiser bottles appear. This is actually what happens. Now this looks like a beer commercial complete with a gratuitous ass shot at 3:55…then just like that the video is over and the band is shooting up their guitars, speakers, and other equipment. Am I the only one slightly aroused?
