In an upside down world being torn at the seams, Tragedy brings us all together by uniting two warring factions – Disco and Metal.
The video stars comedian/musician/author Dave Hill in a role reminiscent of Tony Manero in the classic film, Saturday Night Fever, except with a little less success on the dance floor. He admires a handsome and talented disco-dancer (Nobuya Nagahama) at the club, but every time our Tony takes to the dance floor, he gets caught up in metal mayhem. Eventually, Tony finds salvation in a Disco-Metal transformation, inspired by his favorite band, Tragedy.
Saturday Night Fever fans will recognize many nods to the 1977 film, including Tony’s famous sidewalk strut, the 2001 Odyssey lighted dancefloor, the iconic disco dance moves, the ever-sobbing Annette and the fall off the Verrazano (in this case, Tragedy’s idiot towelboy, Lance, being tossed offstage by the band).
