"Los Angeles, start your VCRs…"

You must watch this alternately silly and seedy Bud Light L.A.-market “grunge” spot from the 1990s. I hope this is for real. (H/T maura)

Details on rumored Dave Grohl–directed Soundgarden video

This from blindlazarus, who says he’s attending tomorrow’s shoot: 

As far as the video goes, it’s going to be a 5-7 hour shoot taking place in [L.A. location redacted]. As far as the song goes, it’s top secret. Even I don’t know yet! Haha Though, after feeling out the scenes, I’m sure it’s for their new single. The video is involving mostly females, as of yesterday I was the only male going, but there are a few I’m sure. The video is expected out by mid-January to February, and after the shoot I’ll fill you in on the aftermath.
