Nerdcore rapper MC Frontalot just dropped this video for his song "Stoop Sale" and it's pretty cute. Frontalot (a.k.a. Damian Hess) describes it as an all-puppet extravaganza about buying a mystical item on a street corner in Brooklyn. But what it's really about [SPOILER ALERT] is how agonizing over a decision can make you miss out on incredible opportunities that will never come again.
Frontalot's occasional keyboard player James Walton, who wrote the music and lyrics for Die Hard: The Puppet Musical, handled the puppetry with a team of puppeteers. Hess helped build the sets in a warehouse in Bushwick, and he tells us the stoop sale tables were stocked with "a bunch of the little things that fans have given me over the years, and pause-button fanatics will find them on the table: a Frontalot action figure, a belt made out of data ribbon, Hassle: The Dorkening cards, an Atari 2600 cartridge of Combat signed by the original programmer, my best calculator watch.The table also holds various props from the Spoiler Alert video from my previous album, which Max Isaacson also directed."
And if you're down at SXSW this year, Frontalot will be headlining the official nerdcore showcase on March 13th.
