There are hundreds of thank you videos for various people who have gone above and beyond during Covid but none like, nor as appealing, as StrawberryFrog New York’s thank you to bartender, Gus (and by association as well as a quick reference in the story, all bartenders and all who have made a difference, these last discomforting months.
StrawberryFrog epic ode is a three and a half minute music video and the single, Why I Put My Pants On, for Woody Creek Distillers, featuring Willie Creeks, played by William H Macy. Creeks’ new single, “Why I Put My Pants On,” is a song that celebrates bartenders and all of those who’ve made a difference during the ongoing pandemic.
The song was written by Creeks, with help from Tyler DeAngelo, executive creative director & partner, StrawberryFrog. Watch the video here:
Mark Kleckner, chief operating officer, Woody Creek Distillers, stated, “We are thrilled to bring Willie Creeks on as a business partner. Willie is not only a neighbour here in Woody Creek, CO, but he is an iconic character that exemplifies the unique ethos of our mountain community and our spirits.”
“Willie plays a huge role in this film,” added DeAngelo, “And of course he was brilliant in his performance.
“I was thrilled when I heard Willie was on board. He’s an American icon and one of the greatest talking blues singer-songwriters of our generation. I’ve been a Willie Creeks fan since his first album, Empty Flask Blues. His latest song, Why I Put My Pants On is classic Willie. Very glad he’s returned to his roots. Can’t say much about his last album, but I’m hopeful and eager to see what he has up his sleeve this year.”
“Willie Creeks is optimistic and enigmatic. His singing is penetrating. This film is definitely worth checking out,” commented Scott Goodson, chief executive officer & founder of StrawberryFrog. “This new film is equal to the epic commercial we did featuring Willem Dafoe for Jim Beam, though this one is for the genuine challenger brand in the spirits category that could use a little shake-up. But more than anything, it’s a reminder of the power of storytelling.”
