CAKE’s video for the new radio single “Sick of You” showed up on YouTube over the weekend. Here’s what the band says about it:
After years of holding back from using a pair of beautiful rabbit costumes acquired by CAKE long before the Flaming Lips even thought of using their various animal costumes, CAKE has finally decided to use the costumes anyway in their very own home made, self-directed music video! CAKE feels strongly that the rabbit poignantly expresses so much about human hope and frailty that CAKE could no longer restrain themselves. Filmed in one of Sacramento, California’s own richly decorated suburban decay settings, it is CAKE’s sincere hope that our “Sick of You” video and song accurately express the hostile cultural mood currently being enjoyed by so many in the United States today.
You gonna take that, Flaming Lips? Here’s the video. Who can identify the shooting location? Looks like Florin Road to me.
P.S. It got 1000 views in about 15 minutes while I was writing. I think this YouTuby thing is going to take off.
