Brokencyde – Freaxxx (Music Video) from Eat Cake Films on Vimeo.

I can’t really tell if this is someone’s serious attempt at fame, a prank or a collection of deleted scenes from a Tim & Eric sketch.

Please feel the pain that is Brokencyde – Freaxxx.

UPDATE: After checking Brokencyde’s Wikipedia page, I had to post some choice criticism. Peep the hilariousness.

Metal Edge Magazine has called Brokencyde “fucking horrendous”.[12] Thrash Magazine has called them “a mockery to the world of music”.[13] Another metal magazine, Decibel, has repeatedly made fun of the band, mentioning them in a interview with the group Big Business, and once ironically referring to then as their “favorite screamo-crunk band”. British commentator Warren Ellis calls Brokencyde’s “Freaxxx” music video “a near-perfect snapshot of everything that’s shit about this point in the culture”.[14] Says August Brown of the Los Angeles Times,“The ‘Albucrazy’-based band has done for MySpace emo what some think Soulja Boy did for hip-hop: turn their career into a kind of macro-performance art that exists so far beyond the tropes of irony and sincerity that to ask ‘are they kidding?’ is like trying to peel an onion to get to a perceived central core that, in the end, does not exist and renders all attempts to reassemble the pieces futile.”[15]

“If this is the future of rock music, we’re fucking outta here”, – wrote Kerrang! in its January 2009 What the F* is up with Screamo Crunk feature. Placing the ‘irritation factor’ mark at level “very high”, the magazine concluded – “Thanks to their tacky, lightweight and frankly rubbish sound, they’ve probably only got a shelf life of about six months”.

Somehow this video makes me wonder where Squincy Jones was during the shooting HA~!
