ATTACK of the EAR-WORM!
SHALLOW GRAVY - JACKET!

 ---

"Dey put...tings...in our EARS!!!"
The words of the U.S.S. Enterprise's Pavel Chekov (from; "Star Trek : The Wrath of Khan") are apt.
That is because this song has been playing through my head, non-stop, since I first heard it a few days ago (after it aired as a part of Cartoon Network's Adult Swim special presentation of the season opener special for the VENTURE BROS).

I just want to share my madness.



After a mockumentary, 'The Venture Bros.: From The Ladle To The Grave—The Shallow Gravy Story', detailing the "rise and fall and rise and fall and rise" of the teen group; "SHALLOW GRAVY" (Hank Venture and Dermott Fictel - with robot H.E.L.P.eR as a Peter-Criss-make-up-wearing, walking-spider-eyed, drum-machine) we were treated to a music video for the single; JACKET.

All I can say is that I've replayed the damned thing so many times, my ears are bleeding - but I can't stop myself.

I'll embed the video here (FULLY NOTING that it is copyright ADULT SWIM).




And if you like it (which I KNOW you will) download the EP (multiple versions of the song; "Live", unplugged, orchestral, remix and full version - with Explicit lyrics) PLUS the VIDEO (all compatible with MP3 Players (including with iPod®), iTunes, Windows Media Player) from my handy-dandy amazon link:


The Jacket EP (Music From The Venture Bros.) [Explicit] [+Video]

It can also be purchased via iTunes, but it's been so long since I downloaded from them, I don't know if I have an account any longer. So, I'm sticking with the Amazon link.

There IS another reason I am hyping the song/video.
Like most of the VENTURE BROS. productions, it does have appearances by Doctor Orpheus (the Venture-verse's answer to Doctor Strange).
But, in this case, that is a very small reason - because he is only shown in non-speaking, cameo appearances,  and also because.. I just simply LOVE the stupid song!
