New Chicharones Video
Portland hip-hop duo goes big budget in a new video for the Samsung Galaxy S4.
Pork-crazed Portland hip-hop duo the Chicharones (singer-rapper Josh Martinez and multi-instrumentalist Sleep) have partnered up with telecommunications giant Samsung to produce "a short musical about modern romance based on the hit song 'Hi Hey Hello' from their 2012 album Swine Flew." OK, so it looks and feels like a cellphone ad that runs nearly five minutes, but we can't gripe about a catchy love song with lots of pretty people dancing. Come on! Open your hearts!
And if you're not familiar with the Chicharones, it's probably because they're usually on tour elsewhere or playing with other folks, though they did play a hometown show at Hawthorne Theater last month.
