Reptar unveils 'Sebastian'

Posted By on Wed, May 23, 2012 at 10:15 AM

Earlier this week, Reptar unveiled a new video for the song "Sebastian." It’s the first single from the group's proper full-length debut, Body Faucet, and it’s kind of a weird one that depicts the plight of St. Sebastian with acid-laced surrealism.

According to catholic.com Sebastian is “patron of archers, athletes, and soldiers, and is appealed to for protection against plagues,” and he died in the year 268. He’s also a bit of a controversial character, as he is seen by many people in the homosexual community as an early gay icon.

Do the math, and whatever your conclusion may be, Sebastian was tied to a tree and shot full arrows. He survived the ordeal, but was later beaten to death for calling out Emperor Maximian over his persecuting ways.

So now that we’ve all had our history/religious studies lesson for the day, here’s Reptar’s take on it all, directed by Deadhorse, Ben Fries, and Jesse Cain (Kindness, Holy Ghost, and Theophilus London).
