Making stuff as a founder of Avocado. Former music-maker. Tuna melt advocate. Started Google Reader. (But smarter people made it great.)

The car was tossed in the sky like a toy.

We began filming a video this weekend for our song "You Drive and We'll Listen to Music".

It was great fun. And like most bands, we found it necessary to entirely spray paint a junker car, launch it into the air, make it flip 360 degrees or more, and send it careening, with a scream of metal, onto the concrete skidding out-of-control into a chain-link fence.

Seriously. Amateur footage here.

The car isn't in frame in my take. I was huddled over one of the cameras with an umbrella trying in vain to keep droplets from forming on the lens.

Thanks to Jason Koxvold, the stuntpeople, and his excellent crew for a good time. (There are some more shots from the day's events I have flying around.)
