This is peak internet: Tony Hawk’s son enlists Barney The Dinosaur for his band’s new music video
Warish – the noisy grunge-punk trio fronted by Riley Hawk, son of pro-skater Tony – have dropped their brand new video for S.H.M. (Second Hand Misery), featuring none other than the big, wobbly purple buffoon Barney The Dinosaur.
Sure. Why not at this point.
“This video came to mind when I heard If You’re Happy And You Know It by Barney playing somewhere and I was in a bad mood and was thinking ‘this song is kinda evil sounding’,” remembers Riley. “Then I went home and instantly started editing the video to the track ‘S.H.M.’ because it’s the polar opposite. It fitted nicely I thought.”
Check out the bizarre, colourful clash of cultures below.
S.H.M. is taken from Warish’s upcoming album Next To Pay, due for release on April 30 via RidingEasy Records.
“This album is more of an evolution, it’s a little more punk-heavy,” says Riley of the forthcoming record, adding that it’s primarily about the cheery subject of “a sense of imminent doom, everyone is going to die.”
