This hilarious and well done video(which includes Led Zeppelin's John Paul Jones on piano) is from a friend Matt Olwell

First, the long awaited music video that my good friends, the Uncle Earl girls made this summer is out! It features yours truly (bald silver head and freaky makeup.) Kung Fu Clogging at it's finest.

You can see it on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sCFJ3LURCtc

I think I can honestly say this is one of the weirdest things I have ever done. If enough people watch it, well, you never know what might happen. Maybe they'll put it on MTV and we'll all be famous. (Hey it happens.) Tell your friends!

The video was directed by a guy named Tom Krueger (? Not sure of last name) Crazy guy. Very talented.

The dancers (apart from the g'earls) are Nick Gariess, (the young blond guy in the disco suit), he's from Michigan, and is one of the best dancers I have ever seen. It's been a blast watching him get better and better over the years. Lessee, who else... Emma Leighe Good, Mayreen Berry (in the horrible feis dress), Jason Nious, who is now dancing with Stomp in Las Vegas (and who I know from the days of Footworks collaborations with Step Afrika).

That's the X-Men-esque good guys, the cloggers are all part of a team from Mars Hill college in NC. Led by my dance partner from back in the day, Heidi Kulas (the blond and slightly scary leader of the cloggettes).
