“He’s got some food stuck in his beard, but you don’t care…”
Hey gang! Time to bring a whole new meaning to hump day, as we kick off Wednesday’s posts with something a bit outrageous, a bit rock and roll and a bit awesome. Meet The Beards. They’re four men. With beards. They play songs. About beards. That’s pretty much all there is to it. A couple of years back they made a hilarious video for their single If Your Dad Doesn’t Have a Beard, You’ve Got Two Mums, which saw the adventures of a boy escaping his oppressive, beardless dad. This time around, it’s a bit dirtier than that, as the band pay tribute to The Prodigy, rock & roll, sex and… of course… beards.
An homage to the iconic Smack My Bitch Up video, the clip is filmed from someone else’s perspective, leading to a Beards gig, a bust-up in the crowd, some drunken rowdiness and a pash with Johann Beardraven, the band’s fearless frontman. Naturally, you know what this will lead to. It’s the twists along the way, however, that are what make this video so riotously funny. Full of beardly goodness!
Good things come in threes, y’know. The first was this song getting in the Hottest 100 at number 99. The second was the announcement of their third album, Having a Beard is the New Not Having a Beard. The third is that we’ll be having the band as guests on the blog very soon, bringing back the My Favourite Video segment. Isn’t that a hoot? Stay tuned! But for now, get freaky with a beard… and watch out for a great comedic cameo!
