"We asked our friends to sneak away from their real lives for a half-hour and record themselves in a way that brought out their personalities," drummer Vinnie Fiorello tells Fuse. "In the end, everyone totally exceeded the expectations."
The five members of Less Than Jake—vocalist/bassist Roger Manganelli, drummer/lyricist Vinnie Fiorello, vocalist/guitarist Chris DeMakes, trombonist Buddy Schaub and saxophonist J.R. Wasilewski—all appear, in that order, at the beginning of the clip. They're truly in their natural habitat—Manganelli is in front of his enormous PEZ dispenser collection; Fiorello is in the headquarters of his indie label, Paper + Plastick Records; DeMakes shows up in a variety of crazy situations; Schaub is among his Simpsons bobble heads; and Wasilewski reps for the home team in a University of Florida sweater.
With a homemade vibe and many familiar faces, it's a feel-good video that (fair warning) will have you smiling ear to ear. Here's to another 21 years, Less Than Jake!
