Video: 45 Channels Radiohead with Parody Song “Tweet”

Our 45th President finds his inner Thom Yorke in this animated music video from artist collective HATEIOHEAD.

Wake up and smell the covfefe, we’re living in the fascist dystopia that Robocop warned us about. It’s hard to believe that we’ve only been through seven months of President Trump’s hogshit, or that Twitter could possibly be more annoying. But here we are in a world where 140 poorly-composed characters can endanger lives, cripple stocks, corrode international relations, and generally dominate the news cycle while being about nothing. They call that democracy or something.

Writer-Director Scotty O. was battling cancer, sick on chemo, and disgusted by the Trump administration’s war on healthcare when began work on the following animated video, which includes design work by Yay! LA Original Art Series alum Hal Hefner. Now, watch as America’s biggest crybaby croons a Twitter-centric send-up of Radiohead’s premier emo anthem, “Creep.”


Writes Hefner of the video:

“‘Tweet’ is a parody video that focuses on the Tweety little lies typed with the tiny hands of Donald Trump, created in June 2017, by a group of artists and creatives that I created this with. We call our selves HATEIOHEAD.

HATEIOHEAD is a collective of creative citizens who are SADDENED and embarrassed by the idiocy of our current government and its moronic leader.”
