Any Questions? - Evolution

Evolution was the third video off of our Any Questions? 2000 release, Mutation. MC2P4 delivers an acting tour de force performance and is joined by Ho Magos (Ken Chandler), who provides a white faced demon cameo. You get to see MC2P4 do it all in this video. A nearly nude MC2P4 dons his infamous "wire costume", feasts upon severed heads, injects himself with re-animation reagent, is implanted with LED systems, and much, much more.

I (Ttam Troll) was behind the camcorder directing ("Do weird face shit!") and filming for most of the scenes but some additional footage was shot by Steve Olsen, Ho Magos, Brian "Who" Black, and even Jackey McConnell (she shot the outdoor snow footage). It was assembled into a final edit in 2004 when we were preparing for the Any Questions? - Alive I Am tour.

One of the locations that we shot at was the abandoned Pennhurst State School and Hospital in Spring City, PA. While shooting footage there, we were forcibly removed from the property by their security. Apparently, we were "trespassing" and we were told that we were lucky that they didn't put us in shackles and cart us off to jail.

Oh, the things we do for our art...
