Funny cameo in a friend's back catalog

So in the meantime while I've been sticking purely to dino music at home, I had to pay the bills and see the world. Basically, I started playing guitar for a hip-hop act. Decidedly nerdy and self-effacing, I felt I could lend something to the music. Played some bigger gig (surprisingly, comic conventions pay good money for musical acts), local shows in Ottawa, and SXSW.

I was listening to the backcatalog of one of the other acts I've played with a few times (he has custom-made usb keys with his entire discography as part of his merch), a guy called mc lars had a song written about how guitar hero doesn't make you good at guitar. I guess it was more topical at the time. The song itself was awful, but had an unbelievably ripping guitar solo on it. Feeling a little outclassed, I had to find out who played it. I did:

Paul. Fucking. Gilbert.

This music video may be the most embarrassing thing I've ever seen him in. Enjoy.

    I have a personal fight against Guitar Hero and DJ's. In Spain, DJ have substitued to actual live acts in many stages, causin a bad problem of work loss.

    Also, I'm a Paul's devote, and this video, his playing and participation, is a new example of why am I.
