Video Release for “Do Me Like That”
“DO ME LIKE THAT” VIDEO PREMIERE PARTY Over the past several months we’ve been working on several music videos for songs off of our most recent album, “Coloradical.” We’re stoked to premiere the first of these videos, “Do Me Like That,” this Friday, July 12th at Stoney’s in Denver! Be the first to view this fantastic new music video before it even hits youtube, and rock out with Bop Skizzum before and after the premiere! The video features Colorado’s own Rocky Mountain Rollergirls! The band had an incredible time working with all the league members on the shoot, with a special shout out to the one & only ‘Suri Brawl’ who made everything possible. The video also features the amazingly talented Ben Roy of the Grawlix comedy team & MMA Fighter Josh Cavan. The video was shot, directed, edited & produced by the unbelievably creative team at Perplexity Pictures. Want to see these amazingly talented people in a Bop Skizzum music video?
