Musician, comedian, and actor Whitmer Thomas just unveiled his debut HBO stand-up special, The Golden One. Thomas incorporates music into his comedy routine and has compiled his music into the recently released record Songs From The Golden One. Now, the singer has followed up the record’s release with a video for the track “Partied To Death.”
Directed by Kailee McGee, the video shows Thomas on a bad date with Los Espookys actress Greta Titelman. The couple goes to a karaoke bar and Thomas is relieved when his name is called to the mic. Thomas sings “Partied To Death,” which hilariously places Thomas singing about his mother’s untimely passing — not the usual protocol for a first date. “This song is really dark,” Titelman says partway through the video.
