Deleted Scenes recruit YouTube star John Kilduff for new video "The Days of Adderall"

Deleted Scenes

Washington DC quartet Deleted Scenes has premiered a brand new video for "The Days of Adderall".

The single is taken from their sophomore full-length, Young People's Church of the Air, out now on Park The Van Records.

The video stars John Kilduff, public access TV artist turned viral YouTube star, known for his 'Let's Paint' TV episodes, in which he simultaneously jogs, blends drinks, chats with guests, and paints live models.

Deleted Scenes' frontman Dan Scheuerman explains how the band became Kilduff's art subjects in the new video.

"I've been a big fan of John Kilduff, the 'Let's Paint' guy, ever since his 'Let's Paint, Exercise and Blend Drinks' went viral. But he's more than just a YouTube flash in the pan. He's a self-styled creativity guru, as well as a performance art commentary on DIY, post-modernity, ADHD, Positive Mental Attitude, and depression. This side of his persona was what drew us to him, and lined up pretty perfectly with the themes in 'The Days of Adderall.' We contacted him through Facebook and asked if he would perform in a video, painting us while running on a treadmill and blending drinks. He said yes, so we stopped by his place in LA in February on tour. Using lemons from his own backyard, he made an especially tart lemonade."
