VIDEO: White Fang’s “Wrecked”

Chunks sounds like a great title for an album and that’s what White Fang did for their new recording. Were they high when they came up with it? I don’t know but here’s a song from Chunks called “Wrecked”, which is their celebration in getting people wrecked from doing something.

VIDEO: White Fang’s “Jingle Bell Rasta”

The thing about this video is that these know how dumb they’re acting, but that dumbness is all in fun for the sake of… well to be honest, I don’t know. But here’s White Fang doing the white thing in “Jingle Bell Rasta”, and why do they decide to do a parody of “Jingle Bell Rock” as a reggae song? Hell if I know.

The video looks like it was shot at the mall, and they know it but have a laugh with it or stare and go “why did I just watch that?” Better music from them is just around the corner.
