Mouth of the South – Good Intentions: A Video Breakdown
Shut your mouth.
Jimmy Hart, famously known as “The Mouth of the South” is one of the most recognizable pro wrestling managers in the world. Famous for his megaphone, hyperactive personality, and trademark hair and sunglasses, Hart managed legends such as Hulk Hogan, The Honky Tonk Man, Greg “The Hammer” Valentine, and the Hart Foundation. When he wasn’t laying out challenges to the wrestling world, Hart composed the theme music for many wrestlers, such as the now Wolfpac and the Fabulous Rougeau Brothers. Hart was also a member of the rock band The Gentrys who had a hit song in 1965 “Keep on Dancing”.
Why am I telling you all this? Wrestlemania is this weekend. Also, it’s because I don’t want to talk about the Christian metalcore band Mouth of the South. Follow along and you’ll see why.
0:07: Nice box.
0:11: What’s the deal with these types of bands doing videos surrounded by wood?
0:13: “Brains go in here!”
0:20: The briefcase in Pulp Fiction was better.
0:22: Don’t make a dick sucking joke, don’t make a dick sucking joke, don’t make a dick sucking joke
0:31: Playing in the woods without amps. Can we officially call this “Pulling a Heidevolk”?
0:36: Bounce like it’s 2009.
0:39: Is he smelling the gun? Did someone rub strawberry lip balm on it? Maybe some cucumber melon moisturizer? That stuff smells delicious.
0:41: Making the drummer lug his gear out into the woods while no one else has to bring an amp has to be a joke on him.
0:49: There’s a whole lot of agreeing going on.
1:01: I kind of hope they’re surrounded by poison sumac.
1:07: Maybe one of them can use it as toilet paper.
1:12: That’s what happens when you bite your pen. Ink everywhere.
1:15: Two for flinching!
1:24: That’s the closest this guy has ever come to someone with dark skin.
1:29: Full-body bounce, now with dry heaves.
1:40: C’mon, you can hit yourself harder than that. Try it! It’s fun!
1:47: “Ugh! I’m just so full of feelings and stuff!”
1:56: Spastic, spastic feelings.
2:02: So when do they start running through the woods backwards without any pants on?
2:09: Good thing the couch is already black because his mom would be so pissed.
2:20: “Hey guys, we have no budget for a video. Let’s just go behind your folk’s place. It’ll be fine.”
2:29: “That’s it, mister! You’re getting a bath tonight!”
2:40: 50 Shades of Bro.
2:47: It’s his “Come to Jesus” moment. Bring some tissues.
2:49: Stupid fucking ground!
2:56: Open wide to feel His salvation all over your face.
3:08: He’s going to catch his death out there without a shirt.
3:12: Scene provided by Forest Gump.
3:17: Dendrophilia means “love of trees”. Just thought you should know.
3:30: Apples and a snake. What could they possibly represent?!
3:34: Now I know what they spent all their video budget on.
3:43: And we also know where Erra got all the branches for their video.
3:52: Yes. Yes you have.
So guy gets covered in ink, freaks out, rips off his shirt, and runs directly into a Bible, while Mouth of the South strain their necks in the woods. Got it.
Mouth Of The South’s album “Struggle Well” is out now via Facedown Records.
