Theo Katzman Haunts His Ex Through Advertisements in “Hard For You” Video

The curse of dating a musician is he or she might write a less-than-flattering song about you, but in the universe of Theo Katzman‘s latest video for “Hard For You” the Brooklyn-based performer whose sound is best described as a blend of indie and soul takes the threat just a step further, imaging a world where the uber-sucessful musician stalks his ex through the inescapable landscape of ever-present advertisements.

“The song was inspired by the idea of my girlfriend leaving me for a guy who makes more money, who seems more professional, who has his life together more than I do,” explained Katzman, who was formerly part of the dance-oriented band My Dear Disco. “In the song, I explain how, while this other guy may have his job and his money, I’m the guy with the soul. I’m the guy with the music.”

We had such high hopes for the Chicago-based theater company since their big YouTube hits like A Very Potter Musical and Holy Musical B@man are pop culture parodies! This should be in their blood! However, we’re kind and we decided to give them a second chance on a slightly less NC-17 piece of work and see if they could rise to the occasion.

Today’s challenge – Catching Fire, the second book in the Hunger Games trilogy that’s soon to be a film. We had them guess the fake quote amidst 3 real quotes from the novel. They may not know much about BDSM romance novels, but we’re hoping they do a bit better on post-apocalyptic societies — their most recent tour was the Apocalyptour, after all.
