Why Is Cage The Elephant’s Matt Schultz In A Tiny Pink Tutu Dancing To Lil Wayne?
Kentucky born singer Matt Schultz is fearless. Never afraid to stage diving into crowds from high atop the speaker stacks or strip down to his underwear, the Cage The Elephant frontman got a little nutty during a 2008 video shoot for the band’s single “In One Ear.”
To thank their fans for breaking the 1 million subscriber mark on Facebook, the band posted a rather odd, yet strangely entertaining video of Schultz dancing wildly and acting frenetic while wearing nothing more than underwear and an occasional tiny pink tutu. Increasing the oddity, the video was overdubbed with Lil Wayne’s 2008 hit single “A Milli.” Originally posted by a fan in 2009, the quirky video received little attention. But with today’s post, the video is sure to get some new love.
For further proof of Schultz’ entertaining on-stage behavior, watch a clip from his famous 2011 Coachella stage dive, in a sun dress.
Cage The Elephant is currently working on their third, as yet untitled, studio album.
