I'm a big fan of the garage punk band, Darling Pet Munkee (Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling's Michael J. Epstein and Sophia Cacciola and Cathy Capozzi of Axemunkee). They write songs based on old comic book ads: X-Ray Specs, Sea Monkeys, Monster S-I-Z-E Monsters, Darling Pet Monkey, and more.
Michael just sent me a link to the band's new "creature double feature." He says:
We decided to pair up our Frankenstein and Dracula songs to create two music videos as a "creature double feature!" To tie it all together, we got a friend to give her best Elvira impression to host as Dalya, Mistress of the Munkee.
In Monster S-I-Z-E Monsters, we send poor Frankenstein's monster on a series of questionable Internet dates, which, as you might expect for a monster looking for love, don't go so well.
For Genuine Soil From Dracula's Castle, we used the actual item that the song is about to craft a Hammer-Horror-style tale of a fool stealing soil from Dracula's castle and paying the price.
