Augusten Burroughs Directs a Music Video

Dry and Running with Scissors author Augusten Burroughs has made his directorial debut, directing a music video shoot for “Hardbody Hoedown” by The Skivvies.

We’ve embedded the music video below (contains extremely NSFW language and The Skivvies in their skivvies)–what do you think? Burroughs made the announcement on Facebook; so far the posting has drawn more than 200 “likes.”

Here’s more about the project: “The Skivvies debut music video, “Hardbody Hoedown”, directed by Augusten Burroughs, features the raunchiest rap hits set to melodious toe tapping melodies. The juxaposition of the absurd lyrics by such prolific artists as Lil Jon and Sir Mix A Lot combined with cello and ukulele orchestration is sure to incite a laugh.” (Image via)
