Holy Ghost! Dads - "Wait & See"
"For a long time, Nick [Milhiser] and I joked that our dads should take our Press Photos. At some point, our go-to director - Ben Fries * - came up with the idea of actually making a video with them playing us... and "Wait & See" seemed like the perfect song to do it for.
At first both Dads were a little apprehensive - and rightfully so: My dad was appalled at the "sizing options" at American Apparel. But when we explained that the joke wasn't on them - That it was actually kind of making fun of us getting older and still living like teenagers, they were game. For the record, they agree: We need to grow up."
- Alex Frankel (Holy Ghost!)
