Watch This Now: Totally Unicorn – “Cool Dads with Cool Sons”

“We’ve got hook hands, hook hands, hook hands, hook hands, hook hands…”

It’s never too early for party metal. That’s an invaluable lesson that my mother taught me as a child, and something that I have passed down from generation to generation. It’s where we start today, where my old mates and yours Totally Unicorn have come back for a second helping of inappropriateness following the dick-slinging fabulousness of Daddy’s Stabby Surprise back in May.

Directed by Sydney dude Mikey Hamer, there are considerably less dicks than last time – but there’s still a good time to be had. Why, there’s bikinis, beaches, guitars used as surfboards and even a disgusting eyelid trick by bassist Tim McMahon, who’s making his video debut here. It’s all plotless fun, but it comes together really well – there were plenty of belly laughs on the first go-around, even more by the second. What can I say? Drew Gardner, the head horn of Totes, is just a fucking funny guy – there’s one facial expression you’ll see around the middle of the clip that just cracks me up every single time. You’ll know it when it comes.

One more thing: If you’re in Sydney or Wollongong, then PLEASE come and check these guys out at one of their shows this week! On Thursday, they will be playing at Newtown’s Sandringham Hotel; and on Friday, they will be playing a very special hometown gig at Yours & Owls in Wollongong. It’s going to be nothing short of unmissable – and I’ll be at both! Be sure to say g’day if you see me around.

Now, on with the dicks!
