“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!
