We wanted to share this music video for everyone as a way of saying thank you for sticking with us this past year. You’ve dragged us around the world and we have been fortunate enough to meet so many of you, and we feel that a sincere, heartfelt, weirdly familial, sloppy hug (in the form of a song) is in order.
The gratitude we wish to express reaches far beyond the touching messages of hope, and the insane donations you’ve provided us at our lowest point, but extends to the good times we’ve shared with all of you this past year. It’s 2013 and some of you are actually still buying music. In the time it takes to read this sentence (with the same energy you’ve exerted) you could be stealing our record, and literally every song ever recorded by a human being and Elvis.
So consider this music video our modest thank you for being the type of people that you are. It’s about friendship, and love, and is kind of a mix between Randy Newman’s Toy Story theme and the intro to The Golden Girls. You’ve given us a gift, the size of which cannot possibly be exaggerated. Thank you for being a friend indeed.
