Wimps covet other people’s pizza in “O.P.P.” video
Seattle trio Wimps released their terrific third album, Garbage People, back in summer via Kill Rock Stars and while picking a favorite is tough, it’s hard to deny “O.P.P.” is the obvious hit. Sung by drummer David Ramm, it’s not a Naughty by Nature cover but in fact a garage punk ripper about coveting pizza that is not your own (with one caveat). They’ve now made a video for the song starring Ramm as a late night pizza delivery guy who must resist temptation with every order. “Cheese pizza is no joking matter,” Dave tells us. “I grew up in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn and ate the finest cheese pizzas in the world. I actually got a part time job as a pizza delivery guy to do research for my role in this video. Just kidding. But seriously. Pizza is serious business… only if it’s cheese.” There are shoulder angels and devils, kooky customers, and perhaps a twist ending.The video premieres in this post — watch below.
Wimps have a few shows in their home state (and one in Reno) this fall, including a Seattle show with labelmates Lithics. All dates are listed below.
