A group calling itself Hateiohead has released a parody video of the 1992 Radiohead hit “Creep,” trolling President Trump.
“Tweet” has been uploaded to YouTube, where it has 70,000 views, by user Hal Hefner. Hefner is “the creator of the CONSUME art series which parodies pop culture and politics,” according to this YouTube page. The video description says it was created, written, produced and directed by someone named Scotty O.
At the start of the video, Radiohead’s Amnesiac bear logo materializes wearing what is supposed to be Trump’s infamous wispy bleached yellow pompadour wig helmet. That’s the Hateiohead logo. An animated Trump appears with an electric guitar and a Russian flag lapel pin while the familiar “Creep” intro plays.
One verse goes, “They’re bringing in racists, drugs, crime and like, three decent guys/ (They’re mostly bad hombres!)/ I’m racist like my father (Seig Heil, Papa)/ We’ll build a beautiful wall/ It’ll be wonderful and huge/ But the reporter who’s special, he’s so fucking special…/ I will tweet, I’ll distract you…”
It goes on like that. Animated Mike Pence, Mitch McConnell, Paul Ryan and mini Jeff Sessions riding a Vlad Putin Minotaur show up in the crowd. The video ends with Trump in jail.
The collective behind “Tweet” may have a friend in Peter Bywaters, a punk singer who was denied entry in to the United States for impersonating Trump onstage, according to NME.
Bywaters, who fronts the band Peter and the Test Tube Babies, landed in San Francisco and was detained. He says, “I had only been there 30 seconds when the customs and border control guard swung his screen round and said: ‘Is this you?’ There in full view was a video from last year’s German tour with me dressed as Donald Trump smoking a fake joint. From there it all went down hill. Six hours later I was forcibly escorted to my seat on the plane.”
Due to President Trump's new regime, a wall has been built across the Atlantic and denied Peter access to the US. So…
Today, the New York Times reports Trump’s support to cut legal immigration by up to fifty percent.
