I don’t really know what to say about this. It is truly pathetic.
Consider yourself warned, and just know that you will never get this 7 minutes and 19 seconds of your life back.
UPDATE: David Weigel spoke with Christian Hartsock, the director of the video:
James and I had been talking about doing something like this around the time of his arraignment,” wrote Hartsock in an e-mail. “We were inspired by George Michael’s 1998 video ‘Outside’ and Michael Jackson’s ‘Black or White’ — both of which were released as kind of fuck-you-to-the-system pieces after those artist’s run-ins with the law. We brainstormed, he put together a track with Tony Dini, and I wrote a script and packaged a cast and crew and we went ahead and shot it.
