I talked with Crowder about his song and video for Run Devil Run, and he let me in on how it came to be.

That thing is a hoot of a song … I figured this out too late, man.  So here’s the deal.  If you want to make a video all you have to say is here’s my idea for a video and you get to make the label pull off whatever it is they can if you can sell them on it.  So I was like, “Hey! I’m seeing like a car chase scene, and I’m driving.  And there I am getting to run around with all the street blocked off, acting like an idiot behind the wheel.  You can’t do that.  We don’t have insurance for that kind of thing in real life, so we get to do it in videos … I just now understood that, so my videos are going to get better and better.

Here’s the video!
