Shoot At Will Films and Bobby Joe Ebola and the Children MacNuggits present the controversial fifth music video from the MacNuggits’ 2010 LP, “F” (videos for all of the album’s thirteen songs are being made!)… the hilariously blasphemous “Sweet Shit of Christ“. Directed by Jamie Dewolf and featuring an outrageous cast including Alex Koll, J. Lieber, Courtney Crimson, Amanda Cavanaugh, Natalie Ashodian, Don Reniff, Ian Whitson, Sissy Dewolf, Bakari Kafeli as Jesus and many more, this video is a MacNuggit-style skewering of religious hypocrisy throughout the ages, leaving no sacred cow untipped. This Oakland-style taste of the hereafter will have you on your knees with laughter.
If you would like to feature the video on your website, please contact Talia Miller at PRawr (talia@PRawr.com) to acquire a hi-def download or for any other press related inquiries.
Directed and edited by Jamie DeWolf for Shoot At Will Films

From the twisted rock wizards at Bobby Joe Ebola and the Children MacNuggits comes “Lake of Flies“, the latest mindbending music video off their album, 2010′s F (Out on SSBC)! With “Lake of Flies”, weirdo-rock pioneers Dan Abbott and Corbett Redford reveal a bizarre world unlike any you’ve seen before.
Directed by acclaimed artist Joseph Demaree (host of Welcome Back! TV and the mind behind Idiomism Records), “Lake of Flies” tells the story of a mysterious doorway in Dan’s basement, one which leads to the realm of a forgotten god. Psychedelic imagery, fantastic special effects, and maggots open the doors to your new religion.
From the trash-strewn strip malls and refinery-blighted hills of the San Francisco Bay Area comes the legendary acoustic duo Bobby Joe Ebola and the Children MacNuggits. Since its inception in 1995, the band has infected the hearts and minds of thousands of audiences, with an unforgettable combination of scathing social satire, contagious songwriting, intense and unpredictable performances, and poop jokes. Armed with only a guitar and two voices, singer Corbett Redford and singer/guitarist Dan Abbott have become the go-to troubadours for hilarious post-apocalyptic advice.
To complement its latest album, F (out on SF-based label SSBC) the band is releasing music videos for each of the record’s 13 songs .The first music video, “Poly” (the clean version), debuted in May and was promptly banned from YouTube for explicit content (UPDATE: July 5th, the video was reinstated by a YouTube censor as containing ‘artful nudity’!). In the midst of an ongoing 45-date U.S. tour (click here for tour dates and more details), the band is making several of these videos available online on a breakneck schedule (see below for full video release schedule).
June 8, www.thepunksite.com launched an exclusive debut of the video for “Real Cool” . In this zany live-action cartoon, the boys attempt to schmooze their way into a hipster dive bar, and hilarious antics ensue. The “Even Cooler” director’s cut will be released July 12.
The next video, “Lake of Flies”, debuts July 5. Directed by Joseph Demaree, “Lake of Flies” features stunning imagery and special effects. In “Lake of Flies”, Dan and Corbett embark on an eerie psychedelic voyage to a distant realm ruled by a dead god. Lake of Flies is the second part of a trilogy of short films directed by Demaree. The first, “Lost… And Found! In Space!?” debuted online in June.
The band’s first ever music video (BELOW), ‘Freaky Baby’ has garnered over 25,000 combined views on Vimeo, Funny Or Die and YouTube.
The band will offer fans a preview screening of the video for “Sweet Shit of Christ” at its July 29 show at the Uptown Nightclub in Oakland, CA. Directed by Jamie Dewolf (filmmaker and host of Oakland’s long-running Tourette’s Without Regrets variety show), “Sweet Shit of Christ” is a hilarious and scathing look at religious hypocrisy through the ages. The video debuts online September 6.
August 2, the video for “Time is Crawling” debuts online. Also directed by Jamie Dewolf, “Time is Crawling” is a chilling and visceral horror short unlike anything Bobby Joe Ebola fans have ever experienced. Not for the squeamish.

It had to be like this. Ten years under a rock during the Bush years and now we’re back with our first music video ever.
Our first song back in ten years and it winds up being an anarcho punk/summer booty rap anthem.
