It got real when director Libby Brawley created this video for Tony Manard's song "Mississippi (Why You Gotta Be So Mean?)" 

"We shot this at my folks place—that's them at the end in the convertible," says Manard. "I put the word out on Facebook to my friends to create the most bizarre character they could come up with and bring water guns to the family compound in the red clay hills of Northeast Mississippi. I bought hamburgers and hotdogs to grill, built some water balloon cannons and let the chaos unfold. Jada Brisentine-Smith (aka Scary Poppins) actually broke her leg on that jump. Despite the appearance of conflict, Shark and Panda are happily married. So two televisions, and one watermelon were shot, one leg was broken, along with several thousand bug bites and about 2 ponds of dirt in my boots. It was a fine day in the country."

Tony Manard's third album KnowWhy is available right now on his website. Come get some of this brutal music video action:
