Some parts of this video feel like Reptar frontman Graham Ulicny was having a bit too much fun with Photobooth on his laptop, but in between the reflected faces are what Reptar’s publicist call “tableaus” depicting the story of Saint Sebastian, “the Christian saint and martyr and earliest gay icon, who was tied to a tree and shot with arrows before ultimately being clubbed to death for his criticism of the Emperor.”
That martyr happens to be portrayed by Flagpole music writer Christopher Benton who, we must admit, is looking rather dashingâ€”of course, we’re biased. We miss you here in Athens, Christophe!
The video was directed by Deadhorse, Ben Fries and Jesse Cain.
