West Hollyood, CA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 10/21/2013 --After debuting his ridiculously outrageous single “Genius Penius” last week, Trevor the Trashman has announced the release of the track’s official music video. The triple threat rapper/producer/DJ delivers yet another glance inside of his crude humor and unapologetic style.
Produced and edited by director/videographer Jude Appleby for 119 Productions, the video was shot in Trevor’s hometown of Chicago. It features Pimp Jong ILL, a long-time collaborator, concealed in an overly absurd costume lurking about in the shadows of a possible love interest.
"I'm in love with this music video. The good folks at 119 teamed up with me to create a cartoon fantasyland that matches the playfulness and humor of the song,” says Trevor. “We have a man in a giant costume. Need I say more?"
One-half of a two part music video series, Genius Penius tells the story of a girl who seemingly does not appreciate the things her boyfriend has done for her. As the video unfolds - it’s clear she’s not concerned with him, and he’s grown tired of her attitude.
In his lyrics he raps, "I told her how to hold her fork I showed her how to order kobe beef and how to eat it, how to mingle in a crowd of leaders." As he goes about scolding her in the video, he later realizes he’s been overreacting the whole time. The conclusion of the video hints at Trevor the Trashman’s next single, “Spring in My Step”, off his upcoming album “Hell Yeah I Want It All” which is to be released this winter.
