Although Redhook peddles alcoholic beverages for a living, we are adamantly against overconsumption.
However, after seeing Shine by the band Final Placement, we may be willing to make an exception. We need something, anything, to help us forget the sheer awfulness of the video and the song.
The first time you experience Shine, you assume Final Placement is messing with you. They can’t be serious, can they? They are. Here’s a nice article about the phenomenon.
