PREMIERE: Chicago’s THE BIG DITTIES Release New Music Video For “More Than SAD! (A Donald Trump Dittie)”

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.”

DJ K-Heyyy – a mom who has worked with Hall of Famers like Better Than Ezra and Edwin McCain and has had original songs in films starring Oscar-winners Keanu Reeves and Mia Tyler – is joined in The Big Ditties byTu-PO, another mom with a background in classical and jazz (huh?!) and primordial libertine Ad-Rik who serves as the “anti-mom”, giving the other two a lot of hell in their songs forsqueezing out babies in the first place.

Heartwarming all around, they were even banned for life from Chicago’s City Winery — I guess staging having your own kids forcibly removed from the stage was offensive to some “proper” parents.

Basically these thug-divas out-do Bad Moms and they are coming to help you laugh your domesticated face off.

The Big Ditties are currently in the process of getting unbanned from City Winery, collecting their sick kids from school and plotting an upcoming debut album that will include such wholesome fare as “Your Pussy’s In Love With Your Best Friend’s Husband”.Album release and touring info coming soon… you’ve been warned.
