MUSIC VIDEO

"3 Little Pigs" by Green Jellÿ


This, and all the other songs on the album, were all first released on video in 1992. They all had videos accompanying the songs, and it could not be purchased in a music-only format. Because of this, the band billed itself as the world's first video-only band, even though they had released an EP and some singles before the video.
 
The video for this song features a clay-animated reenactment of the fairy tale about the Three Little Pigs. The song tells a distorted version of the classic children's story, with the first 2 pigs living a slacker lifestyle and the third a very successful pig who summons Rambo to kill the wolf.
 
This features a Beastie Boys-style rap as it tries to parody early attempts at combining rap and rock. Green Jelly was a novelty Rap/Rock outfit, and this was their only hit.
 
Maynard James Keenan and Danny Carey both were members of Green Jelly before forming Tool. Keenan sings the pig part on this song: "Not by the hair of my chinny chin chin."
 
The group was called Green Jello when this was first released, the name chosen to reflect both the hate the band had for that flavor and the sound they made. They had to change it to Green Jelly after General Foods, the owner of the Jello brand, demanded a name change.
 
The video was directed by Fred Stuhr, who also worked with Tool. He died in a car accident in 1997.

I think I liked, and by liked, I mean laughed and sang along, to this song the first few times that I heard it.

Really, this song sucks, but, I was amazed to learn that Maynord James Keenan (frontman from TOOL) was in this band along with another member of this band that went on to form TOOL.  That part is yes
THIS SONG SUCKED!
