Directed by Nicholas Peters, we are kicking off our premiere week in a little angsty and political fashion as we team up with the “Bad Moms” of Rock N’ Roll, The Big Ditties for the release of their new music video “More Than SAD! (A Donald Trump Dittie)”.
Describing the song re-writing process and making of the video, head-Dittie DJ K-Heyyy said, “We had the idea initially to make it a rap song and rap his tweets, but after our first writing session we decided singing his ridiculousness would be better and we decided on mashing his tweets up with 90’s sensation Extreme’s ‘More Than Words’ instead. Usually in writing you’re worried about not having enough ideas to work with but with this song we had pages and pages of tweets to go from! As for the video, it’s a parody of the original, and I, of course am the photo-bombing new third member to Tu-PO and Ad Rik in all the iconic shots from the original. We’ve got Fausto of Cooking With Drag Queens playing the drummer, and the Clown from ‘Mom Just Quit The Band’ is back! I have to say we agonized about putting in the tiki torch scene, but came up with the idea of putting it out with the fire extinguisher (put out that racist bullshit!) and having the clown being the one to hold it made sense as the clown plays Trump in the scene where he sings the ‘Russia Russia Russia’ verse.”
