NSFW – The Shits present: The Frenchman

My friend’s band is at it again with some kick ass music which, like all of their music, is fun, filthy, and damned entertaining! I mean, c’mon, with a band called The Shits, how can you go wrong? Besides being a huge fan of their music, I’ve also been honoured to illustrate the album cover for Two Birdsthe album where this little project started.

A while back they shared this tune with me, a little thing about getting it on without all that romantic stuff in between. Sometimes, you need Barry White and then sometimes you need some great songs about fucking. This is a song falling firmly in the latter without ever bothering with the former. When I heard it, I immediately had an idea for a music video. I planned it out, found the assets I needed, and then my life went crazy for a while and it got back burner-ed….

Until now.

So I give you this – The Shits performing a little ditty called The Frenchman. All of the footage involved is public domain from the Internet Archive and the video is Creative Commons Attirbution | Non-Commercial | Share-Alike. It is also incredibly not safe for work, so if you’re at work, don’t watch it. Wait until you get home and then you can get this song stuck in your head. After that, hit up their SoundCloud and listen to more kung fu, killer music!
