Vancouver’s Sunshine provide just that with their song “Two Hundred Grand.” Drenched in heavy reverb, the song oozes a carefree and fun attitude throughout that is reflected in the playful video for the jam. Instead of us trying to dissect the visual, we’ll let Trevor Risk (singer/writer/guitarist) explain the inspiration…

“Saturday afternoons are the torture chamber of the television schedule. Just the other day I was at a seaside bar on Saturday afternoon and their television were playing: X Games reruns, NASCAR, and a PSA featuring a pre-Breaking Bad Bryan Cranston talking about how teens can avoid being harassed on the internet, which, judging by the titling and graphic wipes of the piece, would involve making your ICQ account more secure. This video is our tribute to being a total dirt bag, burning through an afternoon with slacker channels of nothing but Xena: Warrior Princess and idiotic movies from the late eighties about cops buddying up with dogs. Two things I miss about these types of terrible, schadenfreude films: theme songs written specifically for the movie (see: Hard Bodies, Back To School) and roll calls at the end of the movie before the credits (see: Top Gun, Revenge of the Nerds). Now excuse me, and if you need me, you can find me fused to a polyester sofa, weighing an estimated 1585 pounds.”

I think lazy Saturdays in front of the tube is something many of us can relate to and Rodney Dangerfield’s Back To School has always been a hangover favorite of ours. Watch the entertaining video below and find a stream of their self-titled debut. It can be purchased at their Bandcamp. We are sure the LP will bring nore than a few rays of sunlight to even the most cloudy of days.
