Yesterday we shared a little teaser for Club Chrissie -- a new "part Wayne's World, part Pee-wee's Playhouse" web series from Sophomore designer and DJ Chrissie Miller -- and today we learned our L.A. friends Hunx (a.k.a. Seth Bogart of Hunx and His Punx and Gravy Train!!!!) and Brande Bytheway have come up with an online show of their own: Hollywood Nailz. (And, by the by, check 'em out with all their cuckoo bananas pals in this month's issue of PAPER.) But even though we're officially filing these projects under "Two's a Trend," that doesn't mean they're as similar as, say, Santigold and Brady Corbet's shared love of Life As We Know It. Whereas CC seems to be a DIY talk show-meets-cool kid crafting hour, Hunx and Brande's variety-cum-sketch show reminds us of a cross between a John Waters flick and The Gong Show. To get a better sense of what we mean, check out the teaser below featuring characters in outlandish pancake makeup that would make Cindy Sherman blush, an outer space-themed phone sex hotline and a sassy judge/bartender named Judge Barry (along with cameos by King Khan, Grass Widow, Nobunny and more).
It looks mental and we love it already.
Addendum: YACHT is also developing their own "comedy show" for Amazon based on the "awkward, banal (and sometimes even degrading) realities inherent to playing in a band," according to a press release. Maybe we should revise this to "Three's a Trend"?
