This was filmed in two days, edited in one week and was
the first SORP film ever.
The punches don't sync up because I had no clue how to do
that in Windows Movie Maker at the time.
The hearse used was a 1981 Superior 3-way Cadillac named
Anna (short for the medical term Anaphylactic Shock)
Was featured on a Fox News special report on the Emo
This film had no script at all, I just told people what to
say or to ad lib it.
There was no more than two takes for each shot.
The used clothing store was Buffalo Exchange on 13th ave
The dash light used on the hearse is an actual funeral
light used in processions.
Unit 242 (when talking on the radio) is a reference to
legendary industrial band, Front 242.
When I said "Hit it" and touched something on
the roof, I figured it would look like I was hitting an
overhead switch, turning on the light. In reality, the
switch is on the dash, which Mike hits, there isn't jack
shit on the roof of my hearse, I just thought it would
Joe (the Emo) was actually tackled by Mike, he was not
aware that this was going to happen, when you hear him
scream it was real.
Joe's fake hair was small hair pieces that I bought at
Kmart, they kept falling out because they were held in by
The fake teeth were pieces of mint gum.
I didn't actually curb an Emo in this film, but I did try
to drag a fellow motorist from his Subaru after a traffic
altercation at an intersection. I was not successful but
we did get me screaming at him on film!
While filming a car driving by slowed
down after seeing Joe (the Emo) resting his face on the
curb and asked "Is she OK!?"
For anyone who is curious, I do NOT CARE ABOUT EMOS ONE
WAY OR ANOTHER. I made this video because the idea
occurred to me when I was obsessed with online police
beating videos and I thought it would be funny. I am not
sure what disturbs me more, the people who go off ranting
on how they'd like to kick my ass if they ever meet me
(incidentally, good luck on that, I am over 6 foot 2, I
have been in more fights than you have, and I spend a LOT
of time working on cars, so I have a decent amount of
muscle, you will probably want to bring friends if you
plan on dispensing the ass kickings you so adamantly
promise me on the instawebs) or if I am more disturbed by
the people who write me telling me how much they love the
video and want to kill all the Emos.
Ok guys, look, here it is... I DON'T CARE. It was a
comedy, get over it. I don't really hate Emos. The fact
is, when I got into the goth scene, we endured a bunch of
ribbing from the punk rockers because we were like more
pussy versions of punks, now that Emos are around we are
just glad there is a pussier version of goth! So take your
good natured ribbing like a man that looks like a chick
for crying out loud! Also, I am well aware of all the
"factual" errors in this flick. I didn't know
shit about Emo, that should be obvious within like 40
seconds of the flick and I didn't feel like doing any
Incidentally, I am glad that there is a new generation of
black wearing depressed teens out there, seriously. I am
happy to see that the counter culture has evolved into
something new that the youth enjoys and that does not
conform to Archie and Veronica stereotypes.
