Introducing Dixie Cup and Merriweather TV

Yesterday, Merriweather Post Pavilion launched Merriweather TV, a viral marketing campaign featuring nutty videos hosted by a dude named Dixie Cup.

So far, Merriweather TV has two Dixie Cup videos -- one about the "real story" behind the giant metal chicken and another urging people to buy tickets to Merriweather to support rich and famous musicians. The first one is hilarious. Check it out ...

I'm going to see if I can get a hold of this guy and find out more about the series.

He did a series of Videos last year too. Chris aka Dixie is HYSTERICAL. Besides his career in film, he is the lead singer in Dingleberry Dynasty.
I look forward to seeing his new "work".

I had no idea this has been going on for a while. They ought to put last year's videos up there, too.

SAM are you going to the My Morning Jacket concert this saturday? Looking like there is going to be great weather, for an awesome band

Last year's videos are on there. Chris is a funny dude.

take my lazy ass to the moon, please!

Here's all the videos from last year and more:

Actually the host/narrator is Seamus O'Houlihan. Dixie the Cup is the chicken artist. Just sayin'.

Rich B, Seamus O'Houlihan is the narrator of the one episode. Dixie Cup is the host of the series. Dixie de Cup is a character in the chicken skit.

Featuring Mike "Captain Mediocrity" Bennett from The Dirty Marmaduke Flute Squad!

Mike plays a good Irishillbillycajun groundskeeper. It's really not too much of a stretch.
