AmperArt #110, He She Me & We, was inspired by a creative, fun & very funny video, Second Favorite Man, by Tight Pajamas. You’ll see, 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’ & 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 & 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 & 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
