ALL OF MY VIDEOS HERE ON YOUTUBE:
DON’T STOP PLAYING (SHARK BITE VERSION)
The first video using actual tracks from my album is up on youtube, it’s Don’t Stop Playing, and it contains actual footage of me being bit by a shark, it was filmed in the Bahamas a few years back.
If you look at the video where I am feeding the sharks at exactly 1:45 at the lyric “and since I’m named HAPPY” this little thing appears on the middle of the screen pointing out the exact moment one of them took a bite out of the Happyman, fortunately I was wearing wire protection so it didn’t really hurt, I was actually every exciting and you can see me looking right into the camera thinking “YEEAHHH I GOT BIT BY A SHARK!!!!!!!!!!!!”
I hope you all won’t all think less of me, but there were moments when surrounded but 25 or so man-sized sharks that were all trying to get to my food where I experienced ACTUAL UNHAPPPINESS! Yes it’s true. I dealt with it by making up a mantra, I would look at them and say (you can see me pointing my fingers at them) “Don’t Eat The Happyman” and “I’m gonna eat your brother!” (you can see me saying this right in the camera where the vocal goes “so shake that but” right at the end) I of course had to fulfill that promise so I that night I searched all over the Bahamas for a place that had Shark Fin Soup. Man that was some tasty soup.
I am now the shark.
This is my most popular song, co-written with Michael Sullivan and Risa Faith. This video was totally spontaneous at a retreat.
