OFF! Release Hilarious New ‘Cracked’ Video
Hardcore punk supergroup OFF! have premiered the music video for their song ‘Cracked.’ Watch two men engage in the ultimate sign spinner battle with fatal results below.
‘Cracked’ is the first of a trilogy of videos and is taken from their first proper full-length self-titled album that was released last month. As the Audio Perv points out, all three clips were directed by Whitey McConnaughy, who has gotten behind the camera for bands like Superchunk, Red Fang, the Thermals and more. The director says ‘Cracked’ is “a comedy short with comedians Randy Babcock and Andre Hyland about a happy content sign spinner dealing with some new competition.”
We’re not exactly sure if McConnaughy is being sarcastic on the “happy” part, because Babcock doesn’t seem too enthusiastic that he has some competition. The trilogy of OFF! videos will be completed later this month with clips for ‘I Got News For You’ and ‘Borrow and Bomb’ on deck.
OFF! are set to hit the road with the reunited punk legends Refused next month. They will launch the road trip in Atlanta, Ga. on July 15 and cap it off July 26 in Chicago, Ill. See all the dates below.
