the new video by COBRA VERDE
"A story of social protest and sexual obsession that could only be Cobra Verde"
-- Film Talk
What happens when an "idle American" wakes up to a bowl of cereal only to discover that his TV has been hypnotized by a band of rock and roll terrorists?
Of course, it's "Riot Industry," the outlandish, provocative new video by Cobra Verde. Punk legend Mike Watt stars as the man in the flannel bathrobe. See his mind and breakfast taken over by a song and a band. He tries to surf his way out of it. But changing the dial is futile in this basic-cable-induced game of mind control.
Comedic genius and notorious barfly George Wendt ("Cheers," Michael Jackson's "Thriller") stars as the fly fisherman caught in a harrowing bait and switch. Blaxploitaion legend Rudy Ray Moore reprises his Dolemite character to keep it surreal. But that's not all: Check out Danielle, the internationally-renowned Egyptian belly dancer, as she plays the sultry temptress. And find out how notorious Hollywood punk character actor Tina B. ("Dharma and Greg") earned her bad reputation.
