“You’re going to love my dickles” – Emceegreg
It’s true, they’re delicious. Dickles are dried pickles with a fine sugar coating, and the first one is always free. In a dream, I recently gave a bag of Dickles to the bandmates of Clap Your Hands Say Yeah. They loved them! And, I found this rather fitting considering that once you put a Dickle in your mouth you automatically want to “clap your hands say yeah.” They’re so good that there’s no time for conjunction or punctuation.
Clap Your Hands Say Yeah are a fantastic band that could give three shits less about grammar. Three shits! To prove their love for insanity and Dickles, CYHSY (this stands for Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, icydk (in case you didn’t know)) have released the Kris Moyes-directed music video for their song “Hysterical” from their newest album of the same name. And, there’s nothing more insane or hysterical then the idea of releasing a music video. The new video was even featured on MTV2’s 120 Minutes. Hilarious!
To support the album and, perhaps, the “music video,” CYHSY will embark on a tour that will bring them through every pickle capitol in America. Coincidence? If you’re lucky you may even hear CYHSY play the new Dickles jingle for radio commercial advertising.
