AmperArt #110, He She Me & We, was inspired by a creative, fun & very funny video, Second Favorite Man, by Tight Pajamas. It features our favorite character, the fun & fabulous ampersand.
Watch the video!
Most of you know I love nudism & hate country music—not to mention I kinda like ampersands—so this video really made me a fan of Tight Pajamas. I laughed my naked ass off.
In the band’s own words:
“Second Favorite Man” is the debut single by the bay area’s Tight Pajamas. It addresses the “cheatin’ and lyin” you often find in country music, but in a totally unique way. In fact, it celebrates a kind of love traditionally bemoaned in country/western songs!
If you enjoy the song and the video, please consider sharing the link with your friends via social media. With your help, we think it has the potential to be spread far and wide.

Not mentioned is the person who suggested the title of the AmperArt piece, He She Me & We: Jeff Greenwald. He co-wrote the song with Susie Davis & shot much of the video. (He’s the “rabbi” in one of the photos.) I checked out some of Jeff’s own videos & books. He’s a very interesting guy. His speech about Noah’s Ark is entertaining: Jeff Greenwald / Noah’s Ark
