Punk band Table Scraps made a shoestring tribute to the mighty Beavis And Butthead as the video for their song I’m A Failure.
“Making videos without any budget is more fun,” says TJ from the band. “We took some cheap wood and socks and made this Beavis and Butt-Head inspired love letter to the golden era of MTV — excess, big budgets, channel hopping and boredom. Sock puppets and explosions were always meant to be together!”
The track is taken from Table Scraps’ new album Autonomy — out now on vinyl, CD and download via Zen Ten Records.
