Watch Dean Ween Make Fun Of The “Exercise Man” In Hilarious New Music Video

first_imgGuitarist Mickey Melchiondo, better known as Dean Ween, has released his first music video in 16 years for “Exercise Man”, from his upcoming solo record The Deaner Album. The hilarious video features Deaner and his group–Ween cohort Dave Dreiwitz, Meat Puppets guitarist Curt Kirkwood, and drummer Ray Kubian–sporting spandex cycling gear and singing an ode to the “douchebag Exercise Man” who won’t stop working out. Dean plays the title role, hogging lanes of traffic while he feels the burn on his bike, puffing on his ever-present cigarette.Deaner explained the origins of the song in a new interview with Consequence of Sound: “‘Exercise Man’ is my favorite video I’ve done…It was real low-budget and simple. I’ve got a really good story about it. When my son was little, maybe around two years old, we’d be driving around and I’d make up little fucked-up jokes. We’d see a deer squashed on the side of the road and I’d say, ‘Hey Mike, look at the cute little deer!’ That would get him laughing. But every time we’d see one of those jerkoffs with all the gear jogging in the rain I’d yell, ‘Go man! You go buddy! Run! Run!’ Then Mikey would giggle at that. Then I’d start singing, ‘Go-Go-Go Exercise Man!’ There’s actually a couple songs that I’ve written like that, which were basically songs I made up to amuse my son. I wrote ‘Exercise Man’ in like five minutes. It just came right out. I knew it was a keeper because I’d always laugh every time I did an overdub. It never got less funny while we were recording it.”Check out the new video below:You can read the full interview here. The Deaner Album will be available on October 21st via ATO Records.[via Consequence of Sound]last_img read more
