A Skewering of the L.A. Bar Scene from The People Behind ‘Whole Foods Parking Lot’

For their recently-released latest offering, Fog + Smog Films, the California-based team behind such music videos as “Whole Foods Parking Lot” and “Berkeley Enough,” have set their targets away from yuppie grocery story shoppers and onto Los Angeles’ bar scene and the artisanal cocktail craze. Bars such as Hollywood’s Cuban rum-and-burlesque-dancers spot La Descarga and downtown mescal bar Las Perlas make cameos as the dudes rap about entering a bar through a trap door and being served by a very serious young lad in a pork-pie hat and a lab coat.

The video itself is fine, but the funniest bit actually comes in the cocktail recipes A typewriter spews out the mixologist’s artisanal offerings, from the “Avon Barksdale” (Hennessy, soda, free-range heroin foam) to the “Moist Yoga Mat” (Hemp vodka, 12-year kombucha, wheatgrass with a coconut water back) to the amazingly-named but nausea-inducing “Chewbacca’s Jacuzzi” (Kashyyyk champagned, muddled slim jim, carbonite rinse).

Roll clip.
