2nd “item” we’re looking for is a tall (6′ 2″ or so), gaunt man. He’s the villain in the video. If you or someone you know can do it, tweet!

3rd “item” we need for this music video is a gigantic fat guy. He’s a henchman. If you know someone who fits this description, tweet @ us!

This music video will be shot in Cleveland, GA btw. Any & all props/persons need to be able to get to that general north GA area in 2 weeks.

4th item we need is a decent-sized safe. Preferably with a combination lock on the front. If you have an empty one, tweet @ us!

5th item we need for the music video is a listening glass (what lock-pickers use to break into a combination safe).”
