Jeff Rosenstock’s Video for “Hall of Fame” Is an Homage to the Glory of Public Access TV
Lackluster prank comedy, amateur puppetry, awkward hosting skills, unbroken eye contact, shoddy camera and editing work. It has it all.
Public access TV is a great place to discover the various talents of your local community weirdos. Sometimes there is a husband and wife duo doing amateur magic. Other times there is a decrepit old woman giving sex advice to callers. And maybe, just maybe, you might find a music video for punk troubadour Jeff Rosenstock’s song “Hall of Fame.”
The video captures everything that's great about the spirit of public access TV—lackluster prank comedy, puppetry, awkward hosting skills, unbroken eye contact, shoddy camera and editing work. So adjust your tracking and gaze upon this bygone relic.
