    A few constructive criticism items, if you don't mind:

    1. The lead singer should have had a fanny pack
    2. He should have worn shorts with those Birkenstocks and socks
    3. Socks should have been beige, grey or olive drab
    4. At least one of the band members should have worn a leather jacket - ideally one that was slightly too small but zippered up
    5. The lighting in the room is obviously strong, why did you force the bassist to not wear sunglasses?
    6. It is the lead singer's duty to sleep with his bandmates' wifes, no need to let the drummer steal his job

    Awesome. You should pitch it as a series. Really good comedic effort.
    I would love to see your character at NAMM. Also it would be hilarious to see him meet and interview Joe Bonammassa.

    "dad Rock" band would have insisted on Tele's or Les Paul's, and the bass should be a P-Bass with a tort pickguard and flats for strings. Guitar should not be a headless design.

    Also, there needed to be a TON more complaining about "today's music is crap".

    Rock n Roll was so powerful that we are all becoming a nation of dad rockers with dad rappers around the corner. That one should be good.

    So...I loved the video and agree you should turn it into a series or something...only thing I couldn't grasp was that headless thing he was playing - needs a PRS, and two Teles, one tuned to open G, and they need to do a Stones song. Gimme Shelter maybe.

    Bravo!

    As a survivor of Dad Rock disease, I applaud the attention you're bringing to our affliction.
