The Insane Clown Posse (ICP) recently released its horror movie inspired music video “Night of the Chainsaw”, the second music video from the duo’s The Mighty Death Pop album, which debuted at #4 on Billboard’s Top 200 Chart.
It has been a couple months since ICP’s newest multiple disc, musical project The Mighty Death Pop (MDP) was released, and since then the face-painted duo has been super busy promoting the album, performing on its Hallowicked tour, and, of course, filming multiple, mind blowing music videos. ICP’s first music video entitled “Chris Benoit”, directed by French team The Deka Brothers, caused a little controversy as the subject matter of the song is about the horrific murders and suicide committed by the late pro-wrestler Chris Benoit. The “Chris Benoit” video was so well made and interesting that it was one of only fifty videos submitted to a category of a Paris based film festival entitled Proclip Festival. So, how does a band follow-up such a successful video? Well, it creates another amazing visual story, but this time adds in gore, drugs, and murder! I guess Insane Clown Posse got that memo because “Night of the Chainsaw” definitely measures up!
In “Night of the Chainsaw”, the second music video off The Mighty Death Pop album, Shaggy 2 Dope and Violent J decided to shy away from controversy, but still wanted to give the music industry and Juggalos exactly what they would expect from a pair of Wicked Clowns – shocking, visual horror with a tiny bit of humor. The “Night of the Chainsaw” video embraces the campy feel of good ole scary movies, having a dark, gritty look, green zombie blood splattering everywhere, and true madness from beginning until end. Along with numerous zombies and the Insane Clowns themselves, Mark Jury stars in the music video as the chainsaw wielding maniac. Juggalos may recognize Mark Jury as he played “Dirty Sanchez” in ICP’s 2010 film release Big Money Rustlas. ICP used long time friend of the label, Roy Knyrim of SOTA Productions to shoot and direct the music video, and the final edit was done by Psychopathic Records’ in-house video production team, which proved to be a great team effort as the “Night of the Chainsaw” music video ended up being pretty darn devastating!
