Question of the Week: Showdown

Which one of these videos would win in a fight?

Hooliganship: Adventure(excerpt)?


VonHummer's Childhood Depression PSA?

This is so close. But Hooliganship had dancing Pizza, so they win in my book.

I wonder if VonHummer's head lobsters could eat the dancing pizza person.

While the Hooliganship video looks awesome, it has components of things I hate about indie rock: hipsters in ill-fitting hoodies, bad moustaches w/ big (potentially non-prescription) glasses, and a thematic ripoff of a Raffi song.

Von Hummer... what can you say about the guy. He filmed the video for "Flip A Bitch" near my old house and has lobsters on his head. His 'A' instrument is bass, like Seal and Meshell and Barry Adamson. Plus this PSA is pretty much a perfect illustration of some of Adorno's theories on the relationship of art to the gravity of the emotional experience that produces it. With a knowing wink. So I don't think there's any question.

Both videos were decidedly awesome, but I have to choose Hooliganship because, um, DANCING PIZZA WTF.
