My dad came up with this song years ago, when at every Winterfest a crowd member would yell to his band, “Play Free Bird!” He penned this parody in response. Unfortunately, the estates of the Free Bird writers will not allow him to sell this song on iTunes or the like, so this video is all we have.
This piece of art was filmed and edited by Jess Kling and her husband Ben. Jess also edited and did foley work for my last short film, Life as a Canvas. You’ll notice appearances by my little brother (the one who gets bench pressed), my father (Old Rudolph), my godfather-like figure, Jess Kling and my friend for life Jess Garber (who just got freaking engaged, y’all!) and several amazing children. I love this piece and I hope you do to.
I give ye, Steel Bird!
